“If you keep thinking about what you want to do or what you hope will happen, you don’t do it, and it won’t happen”

Desiderius Erasmus

As a former Erasmus student, I was moved to see this trailer-like video talking about the Erasmus project. It’s a short video for the Welcome at the Introduction Meeting of ESN Dortmund. The video got over 10K views in less than a day.

The material has been collected by the author over the last three years from his Erasmus in 2010 until now. Quoting from the author, “there are so many wonderful moments and people that any video cannot do justice to the beauty of an Erasmus exchange.”

This reminds me of the amazing year I had in Antwerp where I first discovered Belgium, Flanders and grew a strong interest for the European Union. It was definitely one of the greatest experiences of my life and it widely contributed to building my European identity. Thanks to Erasmus and thanks to all the beautiful people I met there.
