It was a fantastic experience and also a great adventure. In Greece we visited not only Kos Island, but also Athens and Nisyros’ Volcano Crater. All of those places are really beautiful and absolutely worth seeing. Karolina and I, as well as other students from different countries, had a wonderful time in Greece. I already miss them all! I would also like to say "thank you" to my host family and all the Comenius teachers and students for this week - one of the best ones in my life. I hope we'll see each other again soon.
It was an amazing experience to visit Kos. All the places which we visited here were extremely beautiful. I want to thank all those who were there and my host family. I will never forget this week and the people I met. Thank you for everything!
In the morning we had some integration activities at school, so we got to know each other. Then we were divided into groups and had small tours around the school and then around the town. After visiting Municipality we had lunch with our host families at home. In our free time some of us went to town for an evening walk.
The second day also started with some activities at school. We had a meeting with a doctor and nutrition expert. We talked about diseases, healthy lifestyle and eating habits. The experts gave us some useful tips on how to be healthy. Then we went by bus to Hippocratic Foundation. We visited a small museum, garden of Hippocrates’ medicine plants and played a game. After that we had lunch in a small Muslim Village – we tasted Turkish-Greek cuisine. After lunch we went to Asclepeion, the place whereHippocratesfounded his medical school, to see a performance by a Greek teacher and students – representation of Hippocratic Oath. Next, we were collected by families and in the evening we were back at school for an integration party.
We spent the third day on an island, which is an active volcano – Nisyros. We got there by boat and then by bus. It was hot there and there was a smell of sulfur. In addition tothe crater we alsovisiteda museum and had a walk around the small town. We were back in Kos about 5 o’clock and then we had free time.
On Thursday we had some IT classes first, and then a meeting with Greek police. They presented some statistics about road accidents and told us about road safety matters. After that we went by bus to Zia – a small village in neighborhood, had a walk around it and ate traditional Greek lunch. In the evening all the Comenius students met in a cafeteria and spent a nice time together chatting and playing games.
The last day started also at school. We saw some spots about addictions and healthy lifestyle prepared by students from each country and a poster against drugs, alcohol etc, created by some of us the previous day. Then we watched some movies about road accidents and we learned how important it is to be careful, even if we know the road very well. After that we had a small tour around Kos by bus and then we went to Triantafilopoulou vines – wine factory. Then we visited also a beach Kefalos and Blue Lagoon Village Resort, where we had lunch. Next, we went back to prepare for the party, which was in Fantasia club. It was a typical Greek night with traditional food, dances and Greek music. We were sad, that it was over but at least we have great memories from this meeting.
