We did a lot of activities such as hiking, football, basketball, cooking, and painting. We also visited the botanical garden and we learnt how to plant some kind of plants. Furthermore, we participated in workshops about healthy lifestyle. Last but not least, we had the chance to communicate with people from other countries and the opportunity to learn about their countries, their cultures and their diets. Greek, Italian, Polish, Portuguese and Slovenian people had a great collaboration during these days. We would like to thank the Youth Center of Epirus, all the participants, the leaders and mainly the organizers of this great experience!!! We had a great time and we acquired many skills. We would like to do it again and again if we had the opportunity without hesitance..."
