Day Trip To Strasbourg !

March 12, 2018

First Off, Sorry for not posting a video in so long! 

Since the semester has been in full swing I haven't really had the time to edit videos the way that I wanted. No worries though, midterms are now over. So stay on the look out for a Paris Video, a housing video, and a really exciting one I'm working on: Being a Miniority in Germany!

In the mean time, here is a short video of an IES Abroad EU day trip to Strasbourg, France.

A little background about Strasbourg. It is located in northeastern France. Strasbourg sits near the German border, with culture and architecture blending German and French influences. Its Gothic Cathédrale:  Notre-Dame, is one of the main landmarks of the city and certainly worth the trip. The houses and streets and food are really unique because you could see the clear multicultural German/French influence everywhere you went.  

In relationship to the EU, we went to Strasbourg because it is home to the formal seat of the European Parliament. During our trip we went on a city tour which was great. We then had a lunch break and went to the EP. There we had a briefing on the functiong and structure of the EP and met with Dr. Bernard Lucke. He is an MEP, the founder of the AFD, and a memeber of the Political group: European Conservatives and Reformists/ Liberal-Conservative Reformists in Germany. After talking with him, we got to visit the Parliamentery Chamber and listen in on a current debate about Romania and corruption which was extremly exciting and interesting to be a part of. 

 

Until next time!

There’s one thing that the millennial generation can often unanimously agree on: our fingers are glued to our phones. It’s entirely apparent that today, the world is based around technology. This of course has its positives, but it also comes with an abundance of negatives.
