Planning and Daydreams

Maybe next time, Braga!

There are two things I am very passionate about:  travelling and communications.  So I find opportunities to travel whilst talking about/studying  communications very irresistible.

I am a member of IAMCR (International Association for Media and Communication Research). And when it was announced that the next IAMCR conference will be held in Braga, Portugal, I thought I’d whip me up a fantastic paper, send it over to the committees involved, get a travel grant and be on my way to Braga in July. But of course, none of these things happened.  I was simply overwhelmed with work and school.   So now, the oldest Portuguese city will have to wait, particularly the Braga Cathedral…

In the meantime, good luck to all the IAMCR attendees. Have fun!
