In our opinion, it was an extremely fruitful and successful visit that contributed very much to the development of the project by means of real interaction between the European countries involved in the project. Students and teachers alike were involved in common activities and spent quality time together as European citizens in a European country. It was a visit from which everybody had something to learn, in the same time a visit that brought us together once again, both physically and spiritually.
