Great article Rich! Love reading your stuff on Jedi News.

Great photos too. I'm still trying to convince my wife to go those locations...Unsuccessfully so far...

Hoth trip

Great article on your visit to “Hoth” really enjoyed it, especially the bits where you were out and about.
I’ve been to Bergen and a few other places around Norway and agree that it’s a beautiful place to visit, especially in the late summer.
I’m sure that you mentioned that you wanted to go to “Tatooine”, I think that you’re find this is still off limits to all but essential travel, and I can’t see that chaging for a long, long time, unfortunately.
I would have thought that a trip to the red woods where “Seahawks” (SWFUK) posted pictures of would be a great trip, but a long way to go!
Happy travels.

There have been some dramas in Tunisia but I go there a few times a year and it seems quite safe to me. The SW locations are supposedly pretty safe as well, contrary to some sensationalised reporting in 2015. That said, there have been attacks there in the last few years so you never never never know...

If I go to Tunisia they'll be running from me.... lol

There are companies looking at providing tours now. I think California film locations will be next. Actually, Skellig is. Then California.

Skellig does look amazing, although you may have to have a bit of luck with the the weather!
Have you been to California before?
It’s an easy to travel state with so much to see, although I have not seen the Endor locations, would love to see the great Red wood forests up there.
Keep us posted on your trips/expeditions, looking forward to seeing the rest of your photos.
