4 Days in Essen: the fair, the city, the games! (+short reviews)
Another year, another Essen, but for me it would be the first time to actually spend 4 days in the world's capital of boardgames. I didn't know till quite late whether I'd have the time, so I only started looking for a place to stay till late September. Hotels were extortionately overpriced (for my range), but luckily I found an apartment that was very reasonable, so I snagged it for Thursday till Sunday, no questions asked.
However, I wouldn't be traveling alone. My girlfriend, an architect, wanted to see some of the industries in the area. And though she loves gaming, too, we decided we wanted to see something of the sights as well. So two days at the fair and two days of sightseeing it would be.
I'll update this on the go, otherwise it'll be next week before I get this posted. Pics on their way too.
Here's what I brought back:
