Today, I met Samar in a Flixbus going from Amsterdam to Hamburg. She is a 25-year-old student of electrical engineering in Braunschweig and went to the Netherlands for camping over the weekend. Albeit the technicality of her studies, her passion is photography. Coming from Tunisia to Europe to pursue her studies, she started her adventure with an internship in Amsterdam and fell in love with the city´s romantic rivers and bridges. However, she warned me that the bike stealing rate is very high (her bike was stolen three times – so better take care, folks!). On her way back home she met a homeless man who shared his life story with her. In the end, she gave away her tent in the hope that at least this gesture will help to recover his trust in human beings.
