TESTIMONIALS

Dániel and Ágnes:

“The project reached its goals, we do feel more comfortable after exploring some parts of the Dutch nature. We also got a lots of useful and interesting information about everything, I can say. For example, the sheep that are washed in the ven, the evolution of Eindhoven and where its name comes from – just to mention a few. Also, I have never thought that I will know about the Pakistani history. It was exciting to meet with people from all over the world and spend the whole weekend with them.”

Haris:

“Thank you for the wonderful weekend expedition. I enjoyed it very much and learnt a lot about the Netherlands. My biggest highlight from the trip was the realization of how the environment, landscape and geography has shaped the people culture and society here in Netherlands. While now (looking back) this connection seems so obvious; but it had never occurred to me in the past. This has also inspired me to explore the same connection in my own country. Another major highlight was the story telling night. Thoroughly enjoyed it. The hike of the last day was also unforgettable and adventurous.”
