The project Traditional European Project Stories for a European Citizenship was held from 21 to 29 7 Spain in 2013 in the town Purchena.

            Project participated in three countries – Spain, Romania and the Czech Republic.The main objective of the project was to create a story.The theme of the project was to Europe. Our fictional story was shot on video and audio. We have really enjoyed shooting. We had a great time together.

Another part of the project was also interesting. Each country should prepare a traditional story. Then we have our stories translated into different languages ​​and we recorded it.The secondary part of the project was to participate in various workshops. We could try to work with the camera.

            The organizers have also taken care of very rich program. They prepared us for interesting trips around the area. We visited Granada and Almería.

We learned many interesting facts about Spanish and Romanian culture, traditions, history. and we also tasted the traditional dishes of international dinner.

            We were accommodated in a separate apartment with a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom and 2 rooms. Accommodation was very cozy and comfortable. The food was excellent. Every day we had breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack. Drinks were available throughout the joint program. We tasted traditional Spanish dishes and even ordinary home kitchen. We ate at local restaurants.

            I assess the project and its organization in a very positive .Travel expenses were reimbursed to us. Although the organizers were novices, working with them was amazing. They were very courteous, friendly and hospitable.
