Home isn’t a place, it’s a feeling

Home isn’t a place, it’s a feeling

It’s raining outside but you don’t mind, you are home. The breadcrumbs all over the kitchen floor, the empty fridge and the postcards, that you diligently collected during your trips, hung on the wall. A small flat in a student dorm in the middle of nowhere. Home. How can you call ‘home’ a place like this?

Top 5 cities for an exchange semester in Italy

Top 5 cities for an exchange semester in Italy

Italy is a famous Erasmus destination and it certainly doesn’t come as a surprise. Pastaland, as I like to call it, is a top spot for a semester abroad because it has practically everything – iconic cities, deep-rooted history and an award winning food culture topped with friendly people. And this is just a small fraction of what the country has to offer. So, spending an exchange semester in Italy is a win-win deal, trust the international bee. 😊

Interview: Sueli Marsella

Interview: Sueli Marsella

So, for my first exchange I went one year to Germany during high school with AFS Intercultural Programs. I stayed with a fantastic family in a small town between Koln and Bonn. At university I studied History of Arts in Pisa, then I went 6 months to Germany (again), in the small but amazing city of Bamberg. It was a magical place: I felt like I was in one of Grimm Brothers fairytales

Erasmus in Bologna

Erasmus in Bologna

ologna is a fun and lively city in the middle of Italy. It’s full of initiatives and things to be discovered. Erasmus life there is very active and there is also the Erasmus Student Network, an association that organizes events and trips. Bologna is the oldest university in Europe but there’s nothing ancient there (monuments are an exception!): people are welcoming and the vibes are amazing. Bologna is the perfect city for everyone and for every personality, it’s an awesome place to feel free. It’s a cultural melting pot, with tortellini and mortadella

The power of smiling people

The power of smiling people

When I was a child, my teacher said "Give someone a smile and you will make them happy". It was a difficult sentence to understand at 8 years old. I could not explain what the strength and richness of a smile could be. Then I started my Erasmus.

How Dot-e was born

How Dot-e was born

"when you were talking I suddenly saw an image in my mind, the map of Europe full of dots and lines that connect them. The lines are the travels of all the Erasmus, and the dots are the points where they meet. Meeting while travelling means evolving as person, means experience amazing moments, the ones that you never forget!”

Erasmus on a Budget : how can we enjoy it without spending too much money?

Erasmus on a Budget : how can we enjoy it without spending too much money?

Yes, travelling can be expensive and yes, we are students so we don’t have much money. But Erasmus happens only once or twice in our lives: it’s a precious gift, so we should enjoy it without too many worries. We can’t live it with anxieties and doubts all the time. During my trips, I developed a few tricks that I found really helpful. My aim was to do as much as I could but spending always the least possible. So, here they are, I hope you’ll find them helpful!

Erasmus in Rome

Erasmus in Rome

Alberto Sordi, a famous Italian actor, once said: “Rome is not like any other city. It’s a big museum, a living room that shall be crossed on one’s toes.” So, was he right? Certo (a.k.a absolutely)! The “Eternal City” leaves its love prints on each person who dares to visit, filling the soul with gratitude and appreciation for its surroundings. With the remains of the Roman empire, 280 fountains and more than 900 churches, the city is the epithet of real “wanderlust”. Still not convinced and en-route to Rome? Then let me tell you a story

Looking for Giants in Denmark

Looking for Giants in Denmark

This city makes me think of something that totally belongs to another planet and another way of enjoying life. I see a lot of bikes running, but people don’t seem to be in a hurry: even if they are, they show themselves so calm, as if the world could never end today, but neither tomorrow or the day after

Oasis – part II: The meaning

It was midday. We didn’t need any map. We had to follow the dirt road we saw in front of us. There were no trees. The wind blew so hard. It wasn’t pleasant. I’ve got to be honest: I was a little scared.
