After a week spent IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE, coming back home was more than awkward. The city seems to be too noisy, the people too many and the ordinary life, boring!
This is what happens when you are surrounded by amazing people and you are getting to know each other so well.
Starting with, the activities were different everyday and the workshops very useful to improve our skills. In the same time, the schedule was perfectly done in the meaning that we had time for relaxing, for cooking and also for working on the things that we had to prepare for the activities.
During the whole week we had the opportunity to visit a very beautiful place called by the Dutche “Giethoorn, the Venice of Holland” where instead of streets and cars we found canals and boats. That day was amazing, the weather was also fine … so everything was perfect and there we spent an unforgettable day!
So, the project “In the middle of nowhere” was surely a successful one with great memories and experiences for all of us! (Irina Rusen)
