I'm currently in Denmark (have been since the start of July) finishing my Masters studies off in a bit of style by undertaking an intense 1 month Project Financing course in Aarhus, Denmark.
Fortunately, I had more than enough annual leave to spare a few extra weeks after my exam to do a bit of travelling. Then I'm back on a plane to Australia to see what the new financial year will bring - probably decreased overhead allowance and increased revenue targets...
Anyway, I haven't got any plans set in concrete for my actual 3 week holiday after my study but was hoping to see a bit of Switzerland, France and Netherlands - I have friends in each so it makes it somewhat easier. I'm also tempted to go to the German and Hungarian F1's, although I may have to scrap the German one if my case work over the weekend is too great. I would like to see the Swiss Exchange in Switzerland and if I go to Paris, I have the opportunity to see one of the trading floors.
Please feel free to recommend any interesting attractions worth seeing. Unfortunately, I worked right up until I departed, so I had no opportunity to plan anything. I am interested in seeing some historic or new age financial sites if you know of any? The history of money seems to interest me more than a clock or a leaning tower. Don't worry, I will do my fair share of drinking and celebrating. The end 7.5 years of Uni warrants a few late nights.
Apart from that, hopefully when I get back I will have more time to be a more active member on these forums. Masters study with full time work doesn't leave a lot of time for anything else. I'm also looking forward to sitting down and becoming more comfortable with my understanding and approach to the equity and bond markets.
Hope all is well in Australia - I look forward to reading any suggestions.
