COO_2017LeisureMoment

La Bohéme at The Royal Opera House, it moves me. The moment you sit and wait. You get excited. The thoughts of the UNIQUE moment you are going to share with all the crowd.  The feeling that the world stops for a while. The one and only thing, the story, the melody, the act…and La Bohéme!
Despite, I know the end of the story, I always end up crying!

“My experience in attending the World Leisure Congress was unprecedented in terms of the quality of the research presentations I was able to attend, as well as to the numbers of inspirational scholars that I was privileged to get to meet from all around the world. I was also very fortunate to present my dissertation research, under the auspices as one of the recipients of this award, and received a great deal of supportive and critical feedback at a critical time in my own research. The highlight of my participation at the Congress, however, has to have been the afternoon that I got to spend exploring the highlights of Durban with three senior scholars, whose work I have been reading for years.” Meghan Muldoon, University of Waterloon – 2016 TRISS Winner
