East or West – Outdoors is the Best II
In July 2018, five participants from Poland went to a project entitled East or West Outdoors is the best. Some of us already had experience with Erasmus + initiatives, but this trip was a real challenge. This time we were to spend the first 5 days in the Scottish highlands, and the next 3 days in the city.
The main goal of the project was to educate through contact with nature and to encourage participants to spend their free time actively. Therefore, during the first part of our stay in Scotland we slept in tents, which together with all our provisions we had to move to the next camping places on our backs.
Every morning we set off on the trail, participated in the workshops along the way and admired breathtaking views. Sometimes it was not easy due to heavy backpacks and rainy weather, but this did not prevent us from fully participating in the project activities and enjoying Scottish nature. On the last days of the project in Scotland, we moved to the urban environment – lively Glasgow, where we continued the workshops and summarized what we have learned in nature.
The East or West. Outdoors is the best project was an amazing adventure for all of us. We have met such an amazing country like Scotland and returned home with new skills and friendships, more aware of their abilities and full of inspiration that Mother Earth provided.
