There you have it, I’m going to Spain in November. And on the university’s dime to boot! Well, at least to some extent.
Once I’ve adjusted my conference paper w.r.t. the notes I got, I just have to figure out what route to take to Córdóba, Spain. I think at least going via Madrid is a must, that way I can rendez-vous with the Spanish boys who too lived in Bâtiment D in horrific Jules Mousseron during my Erasmus stay in Valenciennes. But how to get to Madrid? That’s my new 1st world problem.
I could travel via Paris. That would undoubtedly benefit my French (which incidentally, I’m taking up again this upcoming semester) and I know an awful lot of Parisians whom I could convince to let met crash their couch in return for a bottle of Tópas. However, I intend to go to Paris next January for a week long conference, LION6, the successor to LION5 I attended in Rome earlier this year. What to do? Travel to Paris twice in a short period of time, or venture somewhere completely different?
I know, being a PhD student, is hard. The choices we have to make. Demanding work, all around.
