The actual reason for this US trip, and the source of the free flight – Connect 18. Here are the few out of my trigger-happy photo album:
All-in-all, Connect is absurdly fun, because it’s so low stress, it’s not a work event, it’s more of a celebration / party than a conference, you get meet people in person whom you have been chatting with online for a long time.
I would not call SF by itself to be sufficiently fun a destination, maybe only as a gateway city to California. Especially with them high prices these days.
