Europe is puzzling me and it should puzzle you too

It is somewhat scary and at the same time exciting, I must admit, this new European context we find ourselves in. Many old European souls are probably asking “Why do we need Europe? We want progress and a good life, but let’s keep things the way they are.

I am worried too, to be frank.

A new breed of Europeans?

The following article was written for cafebabel.com “More than 3 million Europeans share a genuine sense of belongingness as part of the Erasmus Generation.

Social paralysis can be described when one individual has […]
