On Thursday, August 4th, the Foreign Lawyers
Committee and Civil Rights and
Civil Liberties Section will be hosting a Roundtable
on International Legal Practice, where members from across the
globe will engage in an informal discussion about their practice
areas in public or private international law. This topic got BBA
Week wondering where our members enjoy going when they go
abroad, so we are asked:
"What is your favorite international
travel destination? "
If you would like to respond to a future Voices of
the Bar, make sure you send a headshot, and
contact Eric Fullerton at email@example.com.

Australia. I've been lucky enough to go there twice on
business, and I found a place where everyone seemed
comfortable and at peace with each other. People
certainly looked different – there were Anglos, native
Australians, people with visible roots in China, Indonesia,
Malaysia, and all over Europe and Asia – but everyone spoke in
the same odd accent. It's one of the world's great
cities, with lots to see and do and eat. But it's also a
place where "in a couple of days" means a nonspecific time
ranging from a week to six months, maybe a year, maybe
longer. If that's OK with you, you'll like it

"Hands-down, Milan. The food, fashion,
language, cafes, history, proximity to Venice, Verona, and the
Italian Riviera make Milan a place that could be my only
travel destination - over and over - for the rest of my life."

am originally from England, I'd probably get a lot of grief if
I didn't mention London. But if I had my druthers, my
favorite would be the Cinque Terre region on the coast of
Italy, which is accessible by boat, train or by foot only."

"Budapest. A beautiful city split neatly by
the Danube, with wonderful architecture, a fascinating
history, and fokhagymakrémleves, quite possibly the
world's greatest garlic soup."
