The Europe of 2031 is gripped by conflict and division, consisting of small, regional states that only share a mutual enmity. Travel is forbidden and numerous, isolated sub-networks have replaced the Internet. Defying the border restrictions, a group of Erasmus students decide to reunite and celebrate thirty years of friendship.
The book falls in the category of adventure/dystopian fiction and is made up of two installments: Along the Danube, already available in English, and Mediterranean Ocean, which will be published in 2017. The main topics of An Erasmus Story are:

Despite the cold room, the run-down furniture and a refrigerator that only worked sometimes, the young students could have been in the great hall of some famous castle, complete with banquets, speeches, concerts, parties and dances."
"A heaping plate of pasta, a fine wine, and the right musical ambiance made everyone seem intimate and open to discussion, much more than the nightly news would have you believe."
