Our stay in Burgos was nice indeed, but it was time to move again, this time to Zaragoza, where we would spend two nights. Our first day would bring some well-deserved free time, after the morning activities in Burgos, and this lifted our spirits visibly. Until now, our trip had been every bit adventurous as […]

As soon as I heard about the Y Vote 2014 bus tour “Y Vote on the Road!” in the United Kingdom, I knew I wanted to go there. I was at the Y Vote convention about Mobility & Education in Krakow at that moment, which I really liked, so I applied. I also had never […]

Our next journey to Bilbao was long but we needed a rest, so those hours of sleep were received as a blessing. When we arrived to Bilbao we were very much surprised with the beauty and spaciousness of the city, nobody expected to find so much charm in a place other than Barcelona! We arrived […]

After our Asturian adventure, it was time we moved upper north, to Santander. We woke up early in the morning, had a quick breakfast and rushed with our luggage outside the hotel, where our ever-punctual driver was already waiting. One of the challenges we faced during the whole trip was the fast pace in which […]

We left for Oviedo right after the lunch, and after a 3-hour trip, we finally reached our destination.

After leaving León, we continued our journey and arrived on a Sunday afternoon to A Coruña, our fourth destination. It took us more than 3 hours to reach Galícia, but it was worth the trip: it welcomed us with its incredibly green nature, it sky-blue ocean and sunny weather. Our tight schedule didn’t allow for […]

The fifth morning of our trip found us in León, where we were immediately welcomed by the mayor of León and his counsellors representing the Peoples’ Party.

We arrived to Valladolid on the third day in the afternoon, and went straight to Plaza Cantarranes where the members of AEGEE Valladolid had organised a street action followed by an open-air debate, with candidates to the European Parliament. The entire organisation of the debate was strategic: firstly, because of the place chosen, as Plaza […]

Madrid was chosen as the start of our adventure and the concept of the bus tour involved 2 days of trainings, workshops and brainstorming sessions designed to equip participants with the knowledge and tools necessary for the duration of the event. The first of the three days was quite a full one. We started with […]
