South By South West (SXSW) kicked off last weekend and after a two year hiatus, we decided it was time to take a weekend trip to Austin to check it out!

It was a last minute trip (at least as far as planning for SXSW goes), but we were lucky enough to book a hotel in Austin. A few years ago we waited until a few months before and would have had to stay in San Antonio if we wanted to go (also we didn’t know about airbnb then).

We didn’t have any badges so we pretty much bummed around checking out all the free activities. It didn’t matter though because all the things we wanted to see were open to the public anyway, yay! We got to attend two of the Marvel panels, the gaming expo, and the Game of Thrones exhibit.

FaceTime Q&A with Marvel writer Brian Michael Bendis and actor Clark Gregg (Agent Coulson). Attendees received a limited edition comic signed by panelists.

Some of the highlights include getting to chat with Mr. Bendis and Mr. Gregg at the Marvel panel and receiving a free comic signed by the panelists. Also at the top of the list is finding the TARDIS!
