When I meet my friends all around Europe on the first day of EMSA international events.

batuhan:

After the majestic European Village Party in AA2017 Budapest, our first time Scottish EMSA member, Ash had to leave for the airport due to an early flight. We said our sad goodbyes and so on, put him in a taxi and went to bed for a couple hours of shut eye; just to find him in the Hotel Lobby in the morning. He mentioned that he liked the atmosphere so much that, just before boarding to the plane, he asked the officers to escort him out of the airport. Last time i had seen him, he was still enjoying the Post GA Trip while i was leaving Hungary.
