In July, I attended a Summer European Law School in Zadar, Croatia! I applied for this opportunity, since I wanted to learn more about Privacy Law and I would have the change to meet students from all over Europe. Also, I was very happy to go back to Croatia since it’s one of my favourite holiday destinations in Europe.The Summer School lasted for a week, and I definitely had a blast. It was a wonderful experience to get in touch with students with 15+ nationalities and share thoughts & ideas. Besides the morning lectures, there was time in the afternoon to explore the city or go to the beach. I preferred strolling through the Old town of Zadar!
One of the most memorable things during my stay in Croatia was experiencing the atmosphere of aftermath of the world cup finals. On the day I was travelling to Zadar, the Croatian team played an thrilling match against France (since I was in the bus without access to a tv, I had to guess who scored by listening carefully to the shouts of joy & sighs of the busdriver) Even tho they lost the game and everyone seemed down in the beginning, the mood changed very quickly to a cheerful one. Big parties were held on the same night and a couple of days after that the footballers happened to visit the city where I was staying! A huge crowd dressed up in red/white gathered at the stage where the national team was welcomed and everyone was proud of their big accomplishment. The atmosphere during that night was something I won’t easily forget.. I still find fascinating that sport can bring whole nations together.
Lots of love,
