This project took place in a beautiful village of Mănăstirea Humorului in the north of Romania surrounded by beautiful mountain scenery. Since the start we were greeted by amazing hosts. Thanks to Anka, Ieronim, Isabella and Miruna for preparing us an amazing experience. 
The theme of the project was officially wellbeing, but as Anka truthfully said, it was more about happiness and looking at it through the eyes of 4 different approaches. These approaches were Hygge, Ubuntu, Pono and Wabi-sabi.
Our days were always according to one of those styles. Hygge, from Denmark 🇩🇰, was focused on coziness, relaxation and beautiful atmosphere. Ubuntu, from the African Zulu tribe, was all about community, working together and togetherness overall. Pono, from Hawai, was about respecting the nature, environment and people around us. Wabi-Sabi, from Japan 🇯🇵, tought us about finding beauty in imperfections. Every day was unique and amazing in its own way. Main goal of the project is to learn how to be happy, it sounds weird, but we learned many things that can help us (and that we can share) being happy in everyday life. 
Besides these official days we had so much fun at cultural nights which were pretty amazing because there were more than 10 countries involved. We danced, ate and drank (juice of course). All of this were topped of with a trip to the mountains which were full of snow and beautiful and a trip to see some of the famous UNESCO monasteries. We also had a meeting with people from local high school where we had a chance to tell them everything about Erasmus+ projects and our countries. Hopefully we encouraged some of those to be our future participants.
I’m so thankful to EYCB for being part of such an amazing project, I had a chance to make many friendships around the Europe that will hopefully stay. We already made plans to see each other with multiple people from both my team and other countries. I’m returning home sleep deprived but with so many beautiful and fun memories and moments shared together.
