“Hi. As a team leader, I would like to briefly comment on the exchange in Romania in Monteoru / Buzau 30.8-8.9: I would like to thank ADEL for the opportunity to travel and explore such a wonderful country as Romania, on behalf of the entire Slovak team. We really enjoyed youth exchange a lot. I think we were a really strong team and we did not have any problems with communicating or managing different activities. Immediately at the beginning, we met with other participants and during the whole exchange there was a friendly and relaxed mood. The theme of our exchange was “water is life, water is energy, water is future” …. Workshops and activities were really on high level, and we brought home a lot of new information and experience. We also made friends from many corners of Europe and had the opportunity to learn about their countries at least from their narratives. I think I can declare for the whole Slovak group that it was a wonderful exchange and we would not change a single moment. Sincerely Leader with all team.
