I pay my own way - and enjoy comfy hotel beds (please resist the urge to warn me about bedbugs!), bagels and croissants that are layed outside of presentation rooms (I dress like I'm smart and important, walk around, and steal my husband's free breakfast), and fun evenings out after the conference presentations cease for the day. How do i fill my time while he is "conferencing" during the day? I always attend his actual presentation. I think it's important that I understand his field, even though I am an "anti-intellectual" (his term, not mine.) I don't ever want to be the completely estranged wife of an academic, so I mill around other academics like an annoying fly in an effort to understand what rhetoric is. and I'm still learning. After I fulfill my wifely duties at my hubby's presentation, I EXPLORE! Yes, I play. Play about the town - coffee, snacks, shopping, touring, taking photos... I love it all.
And I love, love, LOVE Louisville, Kentucky. We always end up traveling there at least once per year for various conferences, and I've completely fallen in love with the place. In one month, we will be heading to "Luhvull" once again! I feel so comfortable in the home of Muhammad Ali and the Kentucky Derby; there's so much do to, so much to see, tons of culture, friendly people, and great food! In celebration of our upcoming trip to Looeyville (seriously - i'm dancing in my chair a little), I've decided to share some photos from our most recent trip there! Enjoy!
