Romania was my first Erasmus+ mobility experience. Before the mobility I was not sure what the project theme rally means.
Before we visit another country, we all have some prejudices, although we don't know why. Maybe we hear some rumor, we imagine things …
When we arrived to Macin, we forgot what we imagined about it. The countryside was beautiful. The hosting families were very nice. The culture was rich and diverse. We became friend with pupils from different countries. I feel like we will stay friends for ever. My best memories belong to Dracula's castle and the view to the Black sea, museums and markets.
I hope also other pupils will get a chance to go to mobility and break some prejudices this way. I am very grateful to the family, who hosted me. They treated me as I if I was one of them. I thank also to all teachers, who have done a lot of things for us.

I liked most staying by Romanian family and meeting new friends. The Romanian family accepted me really friendly and staying by them was very interesting. I have overcome some prejudices to foreign languages, because I realized it is not too difficult to communicate in English. I also learned some words in Romanian and Turkish and Italian.
The most favourite events were visiting some Romanian castles and aquarium. I found very interesting the school in Macin, at the entrance there is a wall painted by fresco of Saint George (Gheorghe), who is the protector of their school. I found out that it was painted by students and their teacher of Art.

Participating in Erasmus, I met many beautiful people and I had the opportunity to improve my English. I enjoyed all the activities and we managed to bond in such unique ways. We’ve seen beautiful places together and share many feelings. I made a lot of friends, that I’m still talking to and we’ll always have a special place in our hearts for the memories we made together. We had a lot of fun and we broke the barriers between us and let the differences get us together, instead of getting us away of each other, because the diversity is what makes human kind so amazing. If all the things and people in this world would be the same, life would be boring, it would be a sad painting with no colours. In our case the differences are the colours and we can say that the artist is great, because everything is in its place and together we complete each other. I realised this by participating in this project and meeting so many people. I can also say that this project helped me somehow to be more outgoing and confident and less shy. The fact that I was in the both situations, the host and then the guest, was so great and being the second project for me, I had some experience and I knew how to treat my guests, so I tried my best. I tried to involve as much as I could, because I wanted to enjoy every moment of this project that is so great. I left the shyness behind and doing this I easily made more friends than I could ever imagine. I will always remember the moment we had to say goodbye and the sadness was obviously on everyone’s faces. That was the moment we felt the closest and made us want to spend more time together which is why we are still talking even today. All the teachers worked so hard for making the project happen and I’m grateful for the fact that they gave me and many other students the opportunity to live this amazing experience.
