I’m writing today from a little café in Copenhagen, the site from which my journey with the Cambridge Student Travel Award begins. In a couple of hours, I’ll be catching the train to Hamburg, and over the next two and a half weeks will be visiting Berlin, Frankfurt, Munich, Paris, Vienna and my home county of Kent.
The Cambridge alumni network of Europe isn’t something I’d pondered a great deal before my trip, but I’m so excited to meet previous Cambridge students, experience-swap, and practice my German and French in four countries that I love to spend time in. All this knowing that in a few years I’ll be one of these alumni, and with any luck living it up in Europe too.
I’ll try not to be too boring and to include lots of arty pictures to keep you interested in a trip that I’m very much looking forward to!
