Item Information
Kerre Willsher - From Warracknabeal to Vienna. Warracknabeal gave us Kerre and Nick Cave, while Vienna only had Beethoven, Mozart, Sir Karl Popper, Sigmund Freud, Hitler as a student, Semmelweiss, Johann Strauss Snr and Jnr, Richard Strauss, and Marie Antionette. While in Vienna, Kerre used her German/English phrase book, so it’s lucky that most people there spoke English. She presented 3 papers at the Organisations, Communities and Nation Conference, and the International Association of Scientific Study on Intellectual Disability Conference. Kerre also won a Graduate Scholar Award. Kerre has been invited to go to a Hong Kong conference next year, so she had better buy a Chinese/English phrase book. Kerre attended 2 receptions at the Rathaus, which is nicer than it sounds. She also went on a Danube cruise, saw the “Tour of Austria” bicycle race, went sight-seeing, got lost but saw more of the city that way, enjoyed a Mozart concert she had originally intended to see, got rained on but got home safely. Kerre found B&B accommodation for 35 Euros per night and travelled to the conference each day for 2 Euros. Flew home on MH17 the day after that flight was shot down over Ukraine. They went the safer Iraq Afghanistan route!
