Use of the General Expenditure Allowance in October 2019

Unlike most other MEP offices, Nico brought his whole team along on his travels. In part because that's a pretty cool opportunity for an internship. October was marked by two trips, one to London (for the Green group's "Study Days") and the other to Strasbourg (for the plenary week). The website was also launched this month.
