The trip for Estonian team, which consisted of Nora, Raimo, Mia, Sten, Kaspar, Hugo and Viktoria, started on March 30th, when we headed to the airport to catch a flight to Stockholm. For Raimo, it was the first time flying on a plane and he was quite nervous at first, but ended up really liking flying. At Stockholm, we spent the night at the airport trying to get some sleep before our next flight to Thessaloniki.
We arrived to Thessaloniki at 10:20 and for Estonians it was strangely warm at first. We took a bus to the city centre and headed to our hostels and spent a day eating amazing food and exploring the town.
The next day, we took a bus to Xanthi, where the project took place. The bus trip was three hours long and during the ride we saw amazing views of northern Greece. We arrived to Xanthi in the evening and met up with other people from the project. Then we had dinner and went on a walk around the town.
The first day of the actual project started at 10 AM and we started off with icebreaking activities to get to know eachother. We played a few name games and went around the town to complete some challenges. In the evening, we discussed our expectations, fears and contributions for the project.
The following days were filled with more exciting activities and adventures. We had insightful discussions, took part in fun games, and attended workshops that helped us learn new skills about employment. We even had the chance to experience other cultures during the cultural evening and try snacks and sweets from other countries.
As the days went by, we grew closer as a team and made unforgettable memories together. But as they say, all good things must come to an end. So, we packed our bags and said goodbye to Xanthi, promising to stay in touch and keep the memories alive.
