The 12th Congress of the International Society of Travel Medicine meeting is obviously here in Boston. I say obviously because I came here for the meeting and it would not make any sense to be here if it was somewhere else. George came along to two of the previous meetings (Vancouver in 2007 and Lisbon in 2005) and didn’t join me in Budapest in 2009. I think he will probably skip 2013 in Maastricht, but that is just a guess (along with being an inexpensive train ride from home).

So as I sit here, getting updated about this, that and the other thing – I can also look at future meetings and dream about places I have not yet been. There are meetings in South Africa, Bangkok. Excuses to travel? Or am I just dreaming about places that I would not otherwise have to courage to see? Now, if I was really smart – I would put the time and effort into preparing presentations and so increase the justification factor …
