The entry of Romania and Bulgaria to the European Union on 1st January 2007
has created an unprecedented union of friendly countries stretching from the
Atlantic Ocean to the Black Sea. Born in 1957 out of the chaos of World War
2, and re-vitalised after the collapse of the Soviet Empire, the European
Union is triumph of diplomacy over war. This series of flights from the
beaches of Portugal to the shores of the Black Sea is a celebration of 50
years of unprecedented peace in Europe.
