I had already visited ten countries, by the time I studied abroad, half of them in Europe, so I knew how easy Europe was to navigate, and I wanted to be able to travel to multiple countries during my time abroad.
That being said, I also wanted to go somewhere that was not one a typical tourist destination. After going to school in Pittsburgh for three years, I was ready to go somewhere warmer and near the water.
When I started looking through the locations offered by my school, I came across Academic Programs International (API) Dubrovnik. When I saw a picture of the city, I immediately knew that this is where I wanted to study, and when I learned that the program focuses on Diplomacy and Business, that sealed the deal.
