    Yours is a lot cooler OP, but I'd like to see Reitaisai (the big yearly Japanese Touhou convention) at some point before I kick the bucket

      i went to an anime-con as a kid with my sister, but never really understood what you're supposed to do there; what would you do there if you got the opportunity, anon?

        Buy stuff, look at some exhibitions, meet panelists (voice actors, writers, etc), complement people on cosplays, take pictures with them if you're brave enough, wear a cosplay yourself, commission art (they tend to have at least a dozen on-call artists who can do spur-of-the-moment commissions)

        A friend wants to go with me to a local anime con with sounds fun, but I especially love Touhou, so the idea of going to an entirely Touhou-based convention sounds incredible

          seems more like a place to meet people rather than an event, kind of like a house party for weebs; exhibitions sound interesting though, what is an exhibition? what do you do there? i remember you could play video games too and some other stuff

            Sometimes people will make large-format art, or they'll have panels with important people in the world of Touhou (mostly being the auteur himself, ZUN)

    The nomad games seem really cool, but it seems this year they are all going to be held in various stadiums in Astana, Kazakhstan instead of out on the Kyrgyz steppe with mountains in the background. I feel like that's a bit disappointing. Seems like more of a façade for a Kazakh state tourism expo than authentic nomad fighting. Astana seems like an interesting city but it seems like a supplemental destination and not a primary destination, similar vibes to Dubai. I've noticed they have really been shilling Kazakhstan investment and tourism in the US.

    I used to travel for music festivals a lot, it was fun.
    I don't think you get cheap or free food at Kurultáj, though. It's actually quite expensive to eat there and the food hygiene is... nomadic (but it's fine, it's not a closed area, you can just come and go and bring your own not overpriced food and drinks). I mean it's not bad, cause you don't have to pay for anything else, you can stroll around and watch. Anyway, bring lots of water with you if you go.

    I love travelling for 100 year anniversaries of some event. Went to Turkiye for the 100 years of the Republic, tried to go to Rome for the 100 years of the walk on Rome until I heard that they banned public manifestations in remembrance of that.

    Any good 100 year anniversary of a meaningful event you would recommend me to travel to ?

    I went to Burning Man from 1998 - 2007, loved it until the end. Now you'd have to pay me to go back. Normies and authoritarians killed what it was... I don't think I'd travel again for an event since I don't like being in the audience. I travel now to do specific things, like surfing.

      Not really an event but last weekend I hit our mountains up to go snowboarding. I had a blast. Dream destinations are Norway, Switzerland, Hokkaido.

      >I travel now to do specific things, like surfing.
      right on man. Surfing is on my bucket list. I really want to try it this summer. Are you east or west coast? Where have you traveled to?
