Project Back to Nature, Back to Health took place in a nice area of the camp in the village of Platres.
During the project we discussed very interesting issues, such as pollution of our planet, we talked a lot about recycling, reusing and repairing and we watched also a few interesting videos. The next day we enjoyed trip to Troodos National Forest Park where is everything mostly natural, regenerated without human intervention. The Troodos forest occupies the heart of the range and includes its highest peaks. We also saw Kalidonia waterfalls, where we were sitting and just relaxing we enjoyed the nature, sounds of falling water was very calming and drew a lot of energy. After an exhaustive way back we had a tradition dinner at a restaurant, everything was perfect from the food, friendly staff and the music.
We also visited the city of Limassol which is popular mostly with tourists. Afternoon we were at the beach later we got a dinner tradition performed by kebab and we went into town to enjoy the atmosphere of crowded clubs.
Each country also prepared traditional healthy salad. We chose cauliflower with eggs, which is in our country served very often.
Last day for us was also amazing experience. In the morning we finished breakfast and then we still had the whole day to ourselves because our flight was from about 9 pm. One of the organizers invited us to his house to lunch together and did the program in Limassol. We felt very comfortable. Thank you Giannos and thank a lot every single person allowing these projects to happen.
