Travel story: Eindhoven visits Kiev
From the 8th until the 14th of July, the ESTIEM Local Group exchange ‘Eindhoven visits Kiev’ took place. This trip was hosted by awesome people of LG (Local Group) Kiev and boy, I grew to love those people. The night we arrived, two of the LG members were already waiting for us at the airport. They had arranged cheap taxies for us to travel the last few km’s to our hostel. This was the first moment we discovered how kind and hospitable the Ukrainian people are. We even got a CD with the driver’s personal mixtape, since he was also a part-time DJ. But Let me tell you about our amazing week!
Travel story: Business Booster, Lisbon
