"Traveling to the EFACIS conference in Ljubljana in August of 2019 was a rare pleasure and privilege. Meeting with so many well-informed and interesting people with a passion for Irish history, politics and culture was inspiring and I feel I have developed some true and lasting connections. Reading to such a generous audience was a real highlight of the trip, and of my reading year so far. The discussion afterwards was enriching, and I came away feeling energised. The setting in beautiful, laid-back Ljubljana was also second to none. I hope I have many more EFACIS and Irish Itinerary-related trips ahead of me!"
