Tourism and language, are they really interconnected?
I think that in order to understand the sense of a country you really have to mingle. And, for that, languages and tourism are essential. Languages allow entering in other people's minds, while tourism allows you to move and learn History and Culture of a country. That is why whenever I live abroad, I take advantage of all my free time to move as much as I can.
It's not necessary to be an expert in Music, as Music is everywhere. Do you imagine a movie without music? Do you imagine your every-day life in silence? I was so attracted to this that I studied Music for 10 years, with a specialization in Piano. Whenever I feel that I need that spark in my day, I practice and fill it with my favorite sounds, because Music cheers you up as it does with black-and-white movies!
Why do we study European History?
The importance of History is getting to know human thought from an objective perspective. That is why I am specializing in Ancient History, where the principles of Western knowledge are rooted. Through understanding History and periods, cultural interactions and "long-durée" processes we can get a better understanding of current affairs, and make our past to be alive.
