August 2005: Attend my best friend's wedding in Barcelona

With great memories of my previous too-short stay in Barcelona in 1998, I was excited for another opportunity to experience this wonderful city with my best friend (now a bona fide local) and help her arrange the final details for her marriage to Jordi, a wonderful Catalan man. And Barcelona surpassed my expectations for all the wonderful things it offered, leaving me yet again eager to return soon to this fantastic metropolis.

Fall 1998: European Tour (1 mnth) & Study Exchange in Switzerland (3 mths)

Upon returning from Japan for my first trip outside of North America and mid-way through my studies at university, I realized that I desperately wanted to go on a study exchange in Europe.

Luckily, Ivey, my business school, offered such a program and ultimately allowed me to visit the school of my choice -- Sanct Gallen Universitat, in St. Gallen, Switzerland, which featured a program on European Business. I was ecstatic!

Prior to beginning my course (European schools begin classes in October vs. September in North America) I decided to take a whirlwind tour of Europe for a month. It was fantastic. In one shot, I visited cities across Italy, Switzerland, Spain, France, England, Holland, and Germany. Later, during my studies at St. Gallen I also visited Luxembourg and Austria.
