Most memorable travel experience.
World Cup 2010: Barcelona, Spain
My most memorable travel experience took place in Barcelona Summer 2010 during the world cup. Spain reached the Finals after defeating Germany. Around this time my study abroad program ended.
I had two options: be like my classmates and return home and watch the Finals there, or extend my stay in Barcelona and watch Spain play The Netherlands at the Plaza Espana next to ten thousand raging Spanish fans. I chose the obvious. Hell no was I missing a once in a lifetime opportunity!
Heres what happened.
....Right place, right time. Best experience ever.
What wouldnt you know about me from my resume. I love food and fitness (especially kettlebells)!
