Since we hold the election to the European Parliament today in Germany, I have a small contribution. I know that many have negative thoughts about the European Union or especially about the Euro. But still, can you believe how glad I am to be able to travel the way I can today? Without waiting time at the border and without having to apply for a visa months before the trip. An Erasmus stay in Prague made me a European citizen. Daria was able to move from Poland to Berlin and start working here – without obtaining any permits, just like that.
And when I suddenly unexpectedly and unplanned stood in front of the big Euro sign at the European Central Bank in Frankfurt, I had a bit of goose bumps. Since I studied economy, I know that you can complain much about the common currency, but I don’t want to discuss this here. Instead, I’m just happy to be able to vote today.
