Our trip to Strasbourg started on Wednesday at Kosice airport. We flew to Vienna by plane, where
we waited about 2 hours for the next plane to Basel. Here, we managed to buy some snacks to ease
our hunger. After we arrived in Basel, we got to the train station and took the train to Strasbourg. The
journey was beautiful, however it was very long. So, it was about 11 PM when we finally reached
Strasbourg. Then, we followed the navigation to the hotel, and there we immediately fell asleep, because
the journey was exhausting.
On Thursday we went on a sightseeing tour of the European Court of Human Rights. Luckily we had a
Slovak guide that made it easier to understand, so the trip was enriching and fascinating. On the
other hand, we sadly missed the first half of the Erasmus meeting. After our lunch, the second half of
the meeting had begun. We did some interesting stuff there and when the meeting ended, we again
went to the city, to eat, to buy some food for later and just wander around. We discovered the
beauties of Strasbourg such as the Notre Dame, Le petit France, and much more. Later in the night, we
had some ice-breaking activities inside our group.
On Friday we went to the European Council together with the whole Erasmus group. At first, we got a bit
lost, because we thought that we were going to the European parliament. After an interesting
presentation inside the European Council, we took the bus back to the center of Strasbourg and went
to have lunch. Then the second meeting started. When the meeting had ended, we went to the city once
again, but this time it wasn’t about shopping. We wanted to find someplace where we could watch a
hockey match between Slovakia and France. Our team won so we were truly happy. In the evening
we came back to the hotel where we spent the rest of the day playing games and having fun.
