The Hills are Alive...

...with the sound of the 2010 Academy for Eating Disorders Conference in Salzburg, Austria. Need an excuse to go? I'll be there!

I just received word that I got a Patient/Carer Scholarship to help defray some of the costs of attending the conference. The other scholarship recipient was none other than my fabulous friend June Alexander.

Need another reason to go? Laura Collins will be presenting!

I've never been to Europe before, despite spending almost 6 months at the University of Aberdeen in Scotland (I skipped the seemingly obligatory weekend in Amsterdam to legally smoke pot because I had a paper due. I'm not harm avoidant and perfectionistic, not at all). So I am super excited not only for the conference, but also to hopefully travel around Europe a bit while ED can drown in the Atlantic.

Sleep now beckons, so I will apologize for the slightly spastic, disconnected post (I can haz grammar?) and check in with a regular post tomorrow.

That sounds fabulous Carrie. Salzburg is a beautiful city - with a 'old' and a 'new' part. I have been there a number of times in the past. The surrounding countryside (Austrian-German Alps) is wonderful...

How awesome! Congrats on the scholarship! I can't wait to hear about it through your eyes. I would love, love, LOVE to go to Europe, but I don't think it'll be happening this year.

@Artful Dodger,

True, true. I guess I consider the UK part of Europe but also its own entity because of the different currency and time zone, the fact that you need different rail passes for the UK and the rest of Europe, and that English is the standard language.

Yay! Congrats! Salzburg is a GORGEOUS city. Definitely take the funicular up to to the fort! Also, when I was there, I decided to splurge on a Sound of Music tour, which was SO worth it!
