Lil Girl Explores EuropeThis month-long excursion will take me through the countries of Portugal, Spain, France, and Italy.
Strolling through historical streets and taking in long overdue sunshine, I will be savoring local delicacies, drinking good wine, learning about local culture, stumbling through foreign languages, and connecting with new people.
My trip begins with a professional conference in the historic city of Braga, Portugal. I will present a research paper "governing women through fashion" based on the TV show What Not to Wear for the international conference on critical approaches to discourse analysis across disciplines--CADAAD for short.
After the conference, I will take a long overdue vacation and go where my feet take me.
Turns out, the trip turned into two months, with the addition of Germany, Croatia, and Montenegro. France was skipped altogether.
