A girl can dream can't she? Fan Trip Twilight/New Moon style

Post by jazzygeorgie »

So, this all started when I went to see CASINO ROYALE and saw my fave car, the Aston Martin, up on screen. All I could think of was Edward. Luckily, I went with my good friend who is almost done New Moon and knew exactly who I was thinking about when I looked at him. Then, today he IM;s me about how he wants to go to VOLTERRA and sends me this link:

So, I "ohhh" and "ahh" over how it looks just as Steph described it in New Moon. Then he asks if Forks is a real place and I inform him that it is. So, I get this link:

I've been to Rome (2 years ago) and I've been to Phoenix (9 years ago) and started thinking, wouldn't it be fun and exciting to do a fan trip? They have Harry Potter ones in England! We could start at Phoenix, go to Forks and tour the area, maybe take in Seattle (was there about 5 years ago) since she talked about that alot, then back to Phoenix and for the people that could afford it (plane fare at the right time of the year wouldn't be too awful!) head out to Volterra! Tuscany is beautiful---sigh---!

I know money is always an issue, but this IS fun to think about and talk about where you'd like to go, what you HAVE to see, what you would want to do while in Forks, or Phoenix or Italy...a girl can dream can't she? Heck, even just a tour around Forks and the Olympic Peninsula would be great fun.

So, I just had to post my thoughts and see what everyone else thought. If this has been brought up, I apologize. I wasn't sure where to post this and didn't see a thread similar to "Fan Trip" out there!

I would like that, and lord knows all I'll have to do is buy a round trip ticket to WA, and back since I live in Phoenix and I tour it daily. It's great fun. But my parents wouldn't let me go on that trip even if I could afford to pay for everything by myself. And they really wouldn't let me go to Volterra, which is sad. But I'll go to Italy when I get older, so I don't mind.

It's a cute idea though!

I had no idea that Volterra was a real place either... and now I want to go so bad.

I love the whole idea of having a fan trip. My husband said that he would go to Forks with me since we have a friend who lives in the area, but he doesn't really care. He's not going to want to drive around and just look at this little town. I don't think he would be able to really appriciate it. So I think it would be so much fun to get togerher with people who really do care and will be excited to see the grocery store that Bella shoped at or funny little things like that.

So if this was actually something that got planned I would have to say I'm in... I don't know how I would pay for it, but I would find a way.

That would be amazing. It would also be amazing if I could convince my parents to do something like that!

I just found out that I get to go to Greece and on the way back we are going to go to Italy for 4 days... I don't know for sure but I am going to find a way to make it up to Volterra... I have to. But I don't think I am going to be able to go the the Prom now, which makes me so upset, but hey it's Italy, how an i turn that down.

WOW! I've been to Rome and Italy is beautiful! Definitely I would go there over Phoenix because, hey, Phoenix isn't TOO far away. Italy is. If you get to Volterra, you'll def. have to get pictures and share them! I think it's North of Rome, so not sure where in Italy you are going.

I know that money is an issue for all of us, specially for me since i need to travel from Costa Rica to the US, so, what we can do to help everyone is try to sell something every day, or, i don't know, raise some money for the trip somehow, we can start selling something for, lets say, June? or maybe July next year, this way we can have enough time to get some money for all of us, if we all cooperate on this, then maybe we all have a chance to do this trip, since i will spend more money than everyone else, then i will pay for my own trip to the US, but i really think this is a good idea! what do you say?
