This programme is a four year degree for those with a strong interest in European politics, history and institutions, who want to develop their knowledge in a European context with the opportunity to study in-depth the politics, society, language and culture of a major European country (in my case, Germany). Which is why I will spend my third year in Berlin’s Humboldt Universität. In addition to lectures and seminars in King’s College, I am taking an Economics module in the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). Having had the chance to learn English at a rather young age, the idea of going abroad came to me quite naturally in view of the teaching excellence at King’s College and the LSE.
Apart from my studies, I have been cultivating since I was young an irresistible desire for adventure. From riding a bicycle solo between Budapest and Istanbul when I was 19, to sailing across the Atlantic ocean as a crew member on a Swan 41, to cross-country skiing the Norwegian Hardangervidda National Park in -30°C temperatures, these experiences have strengthened my idea of going around the world in a 4L!
Going round the earth
The car seemed like the best way to travel with great liberty. It allows us to go off beaten tracks, where the bus do not go and without any time constraints. As for the choice of the car itself, it is without hesitation that we went for a Renault 4L. Robust, light, easy to fix, it is tireless ! Hence we embarked in a Renault 4 GTL of 1986 in September 2013. It counted at the time a little more than 95,000 kms and it was just the beginning.
