“It is difficult to say what is impossible, for the dream of yesterday is the hope of today and the reality of tomorrow.”

Hello, Manchester and hello readers from around the world who have been following my posts!
Things at Alliance MBS keep happening at such a fast pace for all of the MSc Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship (IME) students, that it is not strange to think of this stage as the beginning of the end, with final essays and reports for most of our subjects, deadlines approaching, and the imminent arrival of the dissertation period.
Since the weather has been quite miserable lately, I decided to have a break and explore the Balkans. This was a trip that I have always wanted to do, but haven’t had the chance. My journey began in Sofia, Bulgaria and covered around six different countries, such as: Romania, Serbia, Bosnia, Croatia and Montenegro. With such a well-scheduled route and an adventurous mind, I visited around ten different cities, enjoying their typical dishes, their local and national beers, learning about their history on walking tours, and meeting locals for pub crawling and clubbing.
However, not only The Balkans are full of amazing choses-à-faire. My cousin, who is living in Germany, decided to visit me so I took him around Manchester and London for a week, in an attempt to cover most of the touristic spots.
This past week I had the chance to take the Old Trafford tour, which is really nice. If you are a United fan, then this is something you must do (not to mention that The University of Manchester’s Student Union constantly sells tickets for Manchester United and Manchester City games at very reasonable prices). Walking around Oxford Road, having some drinks in the Northern Quarter, eating in Chinatown and visiting Deansgate made me remember why I fell in love with Manchester in the first place (despite its weather).
And I believe the same will happen to you.
