Talking with @iclc-giuseppe (conference chair), we thought we’d look for interest in building travel into the ICLC conference plans. This is initially spurred by environmental concerns around cutting down on the more polluting modes of transport (like flying) where they aren’t needed, but just as compelling motivations are touring with performances and other events on the way to/from the conference, saving cash by booking together etc.
One idea - overnight ferries from the Netherlands to Hull are quite cheap if people don’t mind sharing cabins, and I’d be happy to join travelers from there via train and boat to Ireland, perhaps stopping off to have an event in e.g. Sheffield or Manchester.
Another might be doing something in Paris and/or London and then taking the train and boat together from there.
Any enthusiasm and/or ideas for this?
