This is how the German students experienced the mobility to Italy

On September 19th, after school we all met up at the Karlsruhe main station to start our beautiful journey to Policoro, Italy. After some hours of train travelling we took our first flight from Stuttgart to Munich then a flight to Bari. From there we were picked up by a man with a van and a plan. Arriving in Policoro we were immediately greeted by our host families.

The first day we all met up at school where we met the foreign and local students, some were familiar but some faces were new to us. The students from the different countries presented their schools and their country’s culture. Afterwards we departed to a port where we were able to sail on a boat. It was pretty exciting.

On the following day we didn’t go to school but to the “Scanzano Castallena Grote”, a cave where one could see many stalactites and stalagmites which was really impressive. Afterwards we visited the Sun LAB where an astronomy scientist talked about the sun and the stars. The same scientist showed us some facts about the stars some hours later as it got dark. That marked the end of the day for us.

On September 22nd we were in school doing painting and construction activities which were related to our main topic “Stars in Europe”. In the afternoon we prepared our TED speech on our paintings.

On September 23rd we learned about the equatorial sundials and the sun arch. In the afternoon we drove to Nova Siri and the people from Italy organized a big surprise party. We sang Karaoke, every national presented a typical dance and in the night we watched the stars. The evening was very spectacular.

 

On September 24th we drove by bus to Matera. There we visited the old city and the old homes which were built in the stones .In the evening we went to another party .At the party we danced and talked. Everybody presented their work for the Café litteraire. In the end everybody was crying because nobody wanted to leave the others.
