Louis (21, Belgium) works as an educator for people with mental and physical disabilities during the day and writes rap music the night. For a month, he has been one of the travellers for a Road Trip Project financed by the European Commission.
The project brings together eight young vloggers who travel four European routes (Baltic, Danube, Mediterranean and Atlantic) for a month to experience first-hand the EU’s impact on everyday life.
“A lot of people know the European Union but they don’t know what it does or where all the money goes to,” Louis said. That is why it was so enriching for him to get to discover EU co-financed projects as well as the people working behind them.
“You could really see that they are here to make this project work,” Louis stressed, “it was cool to see projects driven by young people for young people.”
Louis travelled in April and May along the Adriatic and Mediterranean coasts, from Greece to France, together with a young German teacher, Louisa.
During their journey, they met with local influencers, learnt more about how the EU actually works, visited a dozen projects and shared their adventures on social media.
