From erasmus to erasmus

It was a beautiful and sunny day of September in Seville and Giacomo was riding his bike to university. He was dreaming about all the amazing adventures he was up to live in the next ten months of Erasmus. Among these, the first was visiting Cordoba, a near city that he heard is stunning.
He didn’t want to go with an organized trip of 60/100 people and decided to write in an erasmus group of Cordoba.

Travelling is a deep human act. That’s because the most important part of a journey includes the people that you meet with their stories and their dreams. A trip is special because of them, not because of the places that you could have easily seen on Instagram.
