Let's Go Europe 2019

Harvard Student Agencies

So, you want to go to Europe? But how could you not? There’s something awfully romantic about spending midnight in Paris, watching the lights shine on the famed La Seine. There’s something special about hearing the growls and grunts of cars on the vias and around the piazzas of Rome. There’s something magical about walking on the streets of London in front of Buckingham Palace as the roads close down for the iconic Changing of the Guard. Europe—rich with history, culture, art, and adventure— is the ultimate destination for any backpacker from any background. For all the hullabaloo around this small piece of land attached to Asia, the fairytale-like legends that you hear from old men in the park, friends, and parents are, for most part, true stories. Well, maybe all except for that one time Uncle Marty claimed he found an old manuscript of Ulysses on a Dublin pub crawl. Pub crawls and pretentious reading material aside, Europe awaits you. Paraglide in the mountains of Gimmelwald, shimmy your way into the most exclusive clubs of Berlin, or scuba dive between two tectonic plates in Iceland. When in Dubrovnik, find love on Lokrum Island and, in Athens, find your Adonis or Aphrodite. Get blown away by the beat of the Pamplona’s Running of the Bulls and cheer on European sports teams in Munich’s beer gardens. Europe has been, and will continue to be, the starting point for the adventures of students all around the world. Join the company of your fellow wanderlust-stricken adventure seekers and set your trip apart from the rest. Ready, set, Let’s Go!

По святым местам

Виктор Чекмарь

Паскаль: «Люди играют в карты ( не выпускают из рук гаджеты, постоянно пялятся в телевизор, убивают время компьютерными играми – курсив автора) для того, чтобы не оставаться наедине с собой. Наша жизнь – постоянное бегство от себя…» Человек успокаивается и обретает душевный покой (перестает терзаться поисками смысла своей жизни) только тогда, когда он обращается к Богу. Только Господь может заполнить Собой присутствующую в человеке глубину и пустоту.

Little Ship of Fools

Charles Wilkins L.

The dramatic and hilarious story of sores and survival on a human-powered journey across the ocean.It was to be an expedition like no other&#8212a run across the Atlantic from Morocco to Barbados aboard an experimental rowboat. There would be no support vessel, no stored water, no sails, no motor. The boat's crew of sixteen included several veterans of U.S. college rowing, a number of triathletes, a woman who had rowed both the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, and a scrawny, bespectacled sexagenarian – our chronicler, Charles Wilkins.When he joined the expedition, Wilkins had never swung an oar in earnest. In a tale both harrowing and hilarious, Wilkins takes the reader along for seven weeks of rationed food, festering sores, breathtaking sunrises, sleep deprivation, and mile-high waves alongside a devoted crew of misadventurers.Little Ship of Fools is a fascinating and funny story of courage, adventure and human spirit

White Planet

Steep faces and vast tracks of powder snow, were captured on film and beamed to audiences around the world. The result was a freeskiing revolution.With insight and humor, White Planet, traces an arc through the new ski culture, in a rock ‘n’ roll adventure that follows a diaspora to far-flung corners of the globe. Along the way, Anthony introduces many of the daredevils, visionaries and entrepreneurs who are bringing the sport to such unexpected places as Mexico, China, Lebanon and India.
