It was a great experience. France is really a fantastic place and I would love to go back one day. I feel very fortunate that I could be a part of such a wonderful group of people. The project really opened my eyes how important it is to learn from each other and how much we can learn from different cultures, getting to know about our real health and to bring new ideas to improve our lifestyle through sport activities. Inspirations back leads us to the knowledge of ourselves, of our abilities and countless possibilities of future. I also think that, apart from learning new non formal working skills and possible collaboration in future between the organizations involved in project , it is the best experience any young person might get. The most memorable thing from the course was the Kayak Canoe experience in Gerardmer that provided a wonderful opportunity to use the team building skills we had just learned in the previous training session.
