For me was the first time when I participate in some kind of experience: it was AMAZING !!! 

I met many people from different countries and we shared ideas, opinions, and joy about the topic of this project and also about our life, the present situation in our countries.

The activities we did were interesting, one that I remind all the time was to know the our personality (we made a test) , which we managed to discover or rediscover for some of us, personality, and our way of being. Also we had a lot of workshop about youth unemployment and I remember a special day..Paintball day in Poronin !

I learned from this beautiful experience to not let appearances to grab us, to see what makes people to be close and closely related, kindness, understanding, communication and the same ideas. I’m glad to meet new people who are special. I’m waiting the next YE or TC !  (Petru Ionascu)


First, It was a great opportunity to see my friend Piotr after 4 years (was the organizer for this project). I learned new things about, YOUTH UNEMPLOYMENT ‘’, discover a new country (and not just touristic things), also to know myself better and meet people from other countries (learn more about their customs, traditions, cultures, language, ceremonies, arts, values and the way of life)..

EVERY day, I was so happy to be there! Just happy to be with such a great people, just happy to work with them, happy to share feelings, ideas, opinions and I’m surely will make a follow up :)

Thank you, Poland, Greece, Bulgaria, Italy! 

p.s. My Romanian Team, I’m so proud of you!!! You are great ( Magda, Hana, Petru, Costi, Dragos, ) ! You made my days there  :)      (Alexandra Ionescu)
