Conferences are generally academic exercises, which can only be attended when presenting a paper unless you are a well funded professor! Most were attended while I was a senior lecturer at the Port Elizabeth Technikon (later merged with University of Port Elizabeth as the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University). The most enjoyable was a week in Barcelona; the Head of Mechanical Engineering asked me if I would be interested in attending as another lecturer had been booked but could not attend. He did not have to ask twice; thanks Karl! Barcelona was such a wonderful place that my wife and I returned two years later after a conference in Poland and a week in Paris. Poland is also a very special place.
