Team Purple in Mannheim

Posted Posted in EoT2018

Emotions ran high as we arrived at our last stop in Mannheim- after almost a month of traveling, each day of which was so intense, we arrived tired and hungry, but the happy, smiling faces of our local organizers was the much needed breath of fresh air. What made it even more perfect was the […]

Team Purple in Utrecht

Posted Posted in EoT2018

Team Purple’s time in Utrecht was straight out of a magical realist setting, as we were at what is known as the ‘hipster’ neighborhood of the city. The walls were covered by graffiti, colors popped out from random spots, and things sprung out from the ceiling that we think might belong more on the ground. […]

Team Purple in Brussels

Posted Posted in EoT2018

The country of beer and chocolate- how could it not be amazing? The seventh stop for Team Purple was Brussels, and they were hosted by AEGEE-Europe, at the headquarters of AEGEE. Whether or not it is the heart of Europe is a different debate, but there is definitely a lot of Europe in this one […]

Team Purple in Burgos

Posted Posted in EoT2018

With a population of just 200000, Burgos has a revolutionary fervor that reaches far beyond its size, something that the residents of this capital city of Castille love to talk about.

Team Purple in Malaga

How beautiful I imagined this city in southern Spain, how sweet its sound- Malaga!

Team Purple in Torino

Posted Posted in EoT2018

Winter was beginning to turn to spring when we arrived at our last stop in Italy, as shades of pink trees dotted Torino’s wide avenues, and we were collected from the train station. As the first capital of Italy (alas for only a very short period), home to Gigi D’Agostino (haha) and a city famous […]

Team Purple in Bologna

Posted Posted in EoT2018

And so we arrived in Bologna, the city of little secrets! As the days went by, we realized that the more you know, the more there is to find out. Bologna is cleverly called La Rossa, La Grassa, La Dotta- the Red (it’s a left leaning city), the Wise (has one of the oldest universities […]

Team Purple in Napoli

Posted Posted in EoT2018

Team Purple’s first stop for Europe on Track began with the famed Napoli warmth; as we arrived while it rained in our welcome and our host parked his car, a random man in the parking lot was so excited to see us that he immediately offered us coffee! The next three days in this beautiful […]
