Today, the 4th May, is a new day in Edessa, Greece, and what is the best way to start, if not meeting our foreign friends first thing in the morning?
The day was minutely scheduled by the teachers and practically it consisted on a nice workshop and a trip to the beautiful Pozar Thermal Baths, emotionally so much more.
The school morning
When we arrived at school, we attended the second workshop of the project. After greeting our new friends, we entered the hall of the 1st high school of Edessa and started to focus on the main topic of the project: eSafety and Digital Citizenship. But this time, analyzing the hate speech. For instance, examples of hate speech and actual data on the web, that made us deeply reflect on the value we give to words. Then, we were divided into five groups, like the day before, and added more work to the common presentation, by fun cooperative learning.
Another day, another trip
Firstly, a bus picked us up from school to take us to the Pozar Thermal Baths. It’s a beautiful touristic attraction, that made us instantly fall in love with the place. We grabbed our swimsuits and towels and off we went. The energy was indeed immaculate: music on the bus, good vibes and friendship took the lead. So, we spent the afternoon swimming and relaxing in the pools, admiring the beautiful view of the waterfalls. Afterwards, we had the last quick “frappè”, bought some souvenirs and returned home to get ready for the night.
What about tomorrow?
In conclusion, us pupils met again at night and had dinner together in a beautiful restaurant on the waterfalls of Edessa. By that time, the second day in Greece was so quickly gone, but we couldn’t wait to wake up and live another bit of this exciting adventure.

Relacja z realizacji projektu Erasmus + “eUropean Fellowship for Digital Citizenship”
Po półtorarocznej realizacji projektu za pomocą narzędzi zdalnych, w dniach 17-23 marca 2022 delegacja uczniów I Liceum Ogólnokształcącego wyruszyła na od dawna wyczekiwane spotkanie miedzynarodowe we włoskim Rapallo, gdzie razem z uczniami z Grecji, Rumunii, Hiszpanii, Włoch i Turcji (online) uczestniczyła w warsztatach dziennikarskich związanych z publikowaniem treści w internecie, dotyczącymi takich zagadnień, jak dobór treści, redagowanie, tworzenie marki, stosowanie grafik i infografik, czy wreszcie tworzenie bloga.
Oczywiście, nie zabrakło też czasu na zwiedzanie malowniczego Rapallo i pobliskiego Portofino, a nawet skosztowanie prawdziwej, włoskiej pizzy. Z żalem opuszczaliśmy ciepłe Rapallo, ale osłodą była świadomość, że już w maju widzimy się w greckiej Edessie!

ERASMUS+ GREECE/Expectations Vs Reality
The leaving was set for 2 a.m. in Rapallo; It was finally time to start this whole new chapter of our project and we were happier than ever. We set off really early, so we tried to sleep a bit both on the bus and the plane, but we hardly managed as the excitement and anticipation have been building up for weeks.
Firstly, we arrived at the airport of Bergamo Orio Al Serio, and we had breakfast there. Then we landed at Thessaloniki and started our trip by bus. It took us some time to realize that we actually landed in Greece: it was surreal.
Indeed we had very high expectations for this trip, as we have been constantly talking to the Greek guys we hosted here in Italy for weeks at that time. Looking forward to meeting our friends once again was the predominant feeling, we missed them lots; But also, getting to know new people and seeing the place we had been hearing of for a long time, Edessa.
As we started leaving the big city and getting in the rural area we noticed the first the differences in the landscape and the buildings. Everything we saw was very green, the houses small and every writing in Greek. In the beginning it was fun to try and read the sign with the correct pronunciation, but soon we realized that modern Greek was very different than Ancient Greek, that we study at school. Just like we expected. We also pictured the typical greek architecture sites and historical patrimony that we are used to study on books, and it was all there.
When we first arrived, screams and shouts. We warmly hugged our Greek friends, who greeted us kindly, and started to realize just how different our cultures were.
The place had barely any signal, different climate and different colours, but getting to know all of this was a beautiful experience.
All of the streets were clean of any rubbish, covered in stray cats and dogs, and it was very safe. Some locals told us it had been about 6 years since the last theft, which is impressive.
It’s time to come back
We made the most out of this project, lived every minute of this amazing opportunity. Indeed, when it was time to get back home, we were all sad. Romanians, Greeks, Armenians, Spanish, Polish and Italians: we were all crying. It has been an incredible experience, we met new people and built new friendships, we were able to get to know new cultures, not only the Greek one but all the other countries’ too. Exchanging knowledge, habits, opinions…our points of view were widened by all of this.
On the way back to Rapallo we realized just how much this project gave us and that now we could count on a friend on the other side of the world.
ERASMUS+ GREECE/Day 4
One last day
For the last day before leaving, May 7th, we had the whole day for ourselves. First of all, we took some rest from the rush of adrenaline of the last days and decided to spend the last moments of our trip together. So we agreed to meet at 11 a.m. for breakfast in a really nice bar in the center of Edessa, where we ate some delicious pancakes. Afterwards, we walked to the waterfalls for the last visit in the place and we also admired a typical flower exhibition. There, we bought some presents for our kind host families and some souvenirs to take to Italy. At 3 p.m. we returned home, we had lunch with our hosts and at 6 p.m. off we went.
The fare well party
The destination was the school’s fare well party, with all the Greek parents and the major of Edessa himself. Professors from each country made their speech and us pupils presented the slides of the presentation we’ve been working on for the past days. Everyone looked enthusiastic about our project and we couldn’t be more happy about that, but we soon realized that it was almost over. The friends that we bonded with the next day would be gone, back to their hometowns. But we erased this feeling, reserving it for the morning after, to spend a nice night together. We ate typical Greek food that every family brought on their own and, with international songs and the beautiful friendships we built, we had one last dance.
