A tradition within AEGEE-Europe is the European night in which each person brings traditional food and drinks from their home country. AEGEE-Tilburg decided to organise a similar event in which members were required to represent a country from Europe. You were required to sign-up in pairs and we decided to represent Hungary and dress up in traditional outfits. It was a fantastic activity because I got to experience lots of different cultures. In addition, I heard about their experiences with other cultures and got inspiration for my travel destinations.
I joined AEGEE-Tilburg for an adventure to Peireias Greece. I went on an exchange which means that local AEGEE people hosted us and prepared a program filled with amazing experiences. My favourite part of the trip was the visit of the island Aegina, which had absolutely stunning nature. I also recall sitting for hours in a local tavern, while sipping uzo, discussing cultural differences, favourite holiday destinations and Greek politics with the Greek AEGEE members. Going on an exchange with AEGEE is unlike a regular holiday because you actually meet local people who become your friend, host, guide and drinking pal in no-time!
