Want to see Paris? Ever been to Warsaw? Studied the ancient sites in Rome or Athens?
When I was a young student, I just couldn’t wait to visit many places in Europe I had read so much about but never seen. On my travels, I came across people who were not so different to me, but I also learned to appreciate the little quirks that made them British, Italian, Spanish... I felt my mind broaden in ways I could not have imagined. I felt European.
Now I want every 18-year-old European to have a chance to experience this too, to make new friends from all over Europe and feel this common European identity.
But I need your help if I’m going to persuade the EU to offer every European an Interrail ticket when they turn 18.
Share your experience with me and let’s make Europe yours.
