It was a real pleasure to travel to Spain (Valencia) and spent there a wonderful week full of fun and amazing people. There were people from five countries, except the Czech Republic, it was Spain, Turkey, Romania and England. During a lot of activities we had the opportunity to get to know each other better and of course we had a chance to improve our English as well.
During the project every nation introduced a sport which is played in its country. The Czech team picked the dodge ball, then we played volleyball, cricket, frisbee or we danced zumba. The biggest event of this week was the Fitness Marathon in Mislata, which lasted from 10 to 14 o´clock. There were a lot of workouts and we really enjoyed it. We also saw typical Spanish sport which is called Trinqued and visit local sport facilities in Mislata.
Moreover, we experienced a lot from the Spanish culture – we saw amazing flamenco show, spent an evening in Capçalera Park and other day at the beach, cycle around wonderful river fluvial park, we also visit l´Albufera lake, we tried diving in swimming pool and explore the city of Valencia itself. We had a chance to try amazing Spanish food PAELLA, which was really tasty.
Thanks Quera Association for preparing a great week in Valencia. And also thanks to every single member of EYCB, allowing this project to happen.
