Travel / Youth exchange

One of the last days of project. We have been worried to not miss the tour in Armenian brandy factory. Tours were usually fully booked or available times were in conflict with our project schedule. During one afternoon break we jumped into the taxi. Looking forward like a little kids who escaped! We got off in front of factory. In rush we bought the tickets for tour which already started 5 minutes ago. What we […]

Beaches and sea 1905 meters above sea level. Sevan is a huge lake one hour northeast of Yerevan. It’s popular summer resort. Armenia doesn’t have a sea so Armenian are obviously proud of Sevan. No wonder that they label it as Armenian sea! It is very popular not only among Armenians but also Iranians are frequent visitors. We visited it as short one day trip, part ouf our youth exchange. It was end of the season when […]

With deep conviction, positive attitude and right mindset everything is possible Teams from Czech Republic, Georgia, Moldova, Norway, Romania and Slovakia met in capital of Armenia – Yerevan to discuss topic of entrepreneurship and alternatives to finding a job in ordinary way. Among many fun energizers and different non-formal activities there was memorable afternoon. Afternoon which showed how effective non-formal education can be on attaining new beliefs. It had big impact on me when I […]

Are you visiting Netherlands? Probably Amsterdam will be 100% on your list. After a day in Amsterdam I decided to discover something out of city. From many options I chose: Zaanse Schans I considered windmills as something traditional for this country and also I knew that I will be able to play with camera and make some countryside photos there.

The may trip is coming slowly to the end. I stayed one more night in Borås. It was time to move to Stockholm. Quickly and reliably! Considering all my options I decided for bus. I visited Couch-surfing meeting in capital, spent one night and take flight to Bremen, Germany. My cool friend and classmate from bachelor degree was waiting for me on airport. It was really nice change after travelling more or less alone that some […]

If I should describe the Borås there are three things which quickly come to my mind. Sculptures, wall paintings and textile. Borås is situated one hour by express bus from Göteborg. When you arrive by bus or train you are already in centre! Centre of the city is easy to walk around. First what you notice is a nice park bordered by a river. Few streets with shops and restaurant. A square with town hall which is Oldest building […]

After I get off in the gas station with shopping center behind. Still in Norway but close to the Swedish border I had to make again a decision. Where will I stand to get a lift? Will I stay at the gas station and speak to people? Or will move closer to the exit where I could maybe stop more cars but cannot speak to the driver? Both have their own pros and cons but […]
