My resources are one 14-kg backpack, one month and half, 800€ in the Pocket, and friends all over Europe.

I will try to outline a vertical view of Europe by exploring its two cultural poles -the north (baltic and nordic countries; especially Estonia, Lettonia, Sweden and Finnland) & the south (Spain and South of France)- with Italy and Fance as transition countries.

I would like to get a better understanding of the two different approaches of the individu to society while contextualising them in the respective historic past.

Is there an antinomy between the individualistic societies of northern countries and the more social-oriented societies of the southern one? Are these differences irreductible?
