Bonjour! I would like to introduce you a country with a rich history, amazing food, and a lot of beautiful landmarks: France! Our journey began on 1st of August at the Prague airport, where all the Czech participants finally met. We found out very quickly that we share the same sense of humour, so we already knew, we’re going to have a lot of fun.
The project Eurocircus took place in Breteuil, approximately 100 km North from the capital of France, Paris. Our unusually large group (12 members of the Czech team) spend almost two weeks together with awesome people from Latvia, Romania, France, Portugal, and Slovakia juggling, balancing, and doing acrobatics.
It was amazing to try something new and find out that even though some of us didn’t have a previous experience with circus, we managed to learn a lot and could even perform all together at the end of the project. It was also inspiring to see already experienced people push their limits and try to find out if they are talented at the different fields as well.
We also had an opportunity to visit Paris and see some of its most famous landmarks as are Louvre or Eiffel Tower. One of our trips lead us to Amiens where we could enter the house of the famous writer Jules Verne, and we even saw the seals in their natural habitat while we visited the Somme Bay.
I would like to thank to all awesome 11 members of the Czech team for making this project such fun and also to people from EYCB for organizing the Czech groups – I know it’s a lot of work… Thank you, guys :*
