6 students travelling from Copenhagen to Corella to experience Spanish culture and everyday life.
Six students travelled from Copenhagen to Corella in Spain. To participate in the Exchange in the Erasmus+ Project, Sustainable mobility – Sustainable communities. They were to stay with Spanish students.
Before they meet with their host students, they were very excited and talkative on the way. As we approached Corella the students got a little quieter. They were about to meet the Spanish students they were going to spend a week with.
After meeting they Spanish hosts the families had prepared an amazing meal for everyone participating in the project.
It was a week with many exciting activities. One of the things that the Danish students in particular enjoyed was the visit to the cooking school. Students from the Spanish cooking school taught the visitors how to make Spanish omelet. After the lesson everyone enjoyed a well-prepared meal together with the students from the cooking school.
The group also visited town hall in Corella and the mayor who performed a demonstration of how the local and annual Saint Famin festival are opened by firing off fireworks.
The Danish students had a great and exciting week. They all went home with new friendships and new inspiration and knowledge about the Spanish culture and how families and students lived their everyday life. Thanks to the Spanish team of volunteers, students and parents
