On a solo hike? Then let us accompany you with our new podcast mini-series all about enjoying the great outdoors in Europe.
National Sports and Games
In this episode, we travel from Cyprus to Ireland, stopping at nations in between to discuss national sports and games that are key elements of various European cultures. From the classics such as soccer, basketball, and pétanque to new sports like teqball to Greek board games, you’ll hear former college athletes, national reps, and club presidents discuss why you should try your hand at these games.
On the Trail: Bikes, Hikes, & Mushrooms
Simply being outside is a vital part of European culture—and there are many activities that can be found “on the trail” that are popular throughout the EU. On this episode, we explore three of them, starting with the culinary excursion of mushrooming, wandering through the classic enjoyment of hiking, and hopping on for a ride with cycling, speaking with Ambassadors and Counselors from Italy, Latvia, the Netherlands, and more!
Unique Traditions and Celebrations
Unique traditions and celebrations abound across the European Union—and many of them take place outdoors during the warm months of spring and summer. On this episode, we speak with Ambassadors, Counsellors, and Officers of EU countries about the various traditions that are found only in particular European nations. What country has mud-walking protected by UNESCO? Do you light fires to keep away the witches of May? What’s your outdoor patio drinking game at? Take a listen to learn!
