It is time for our EUSTORY Academy from Bulgaria to start!

A small country (approximately 7,5 million people) situated in the South of Europe, part of the Balkan Peninsula and one of the newest members of the European Union, Bulgaria has an interesting culture and a fascinating past to which religious

Grazia Scuol… Your celebrities 🙂

We all had a great time in Scuol and the other villages of the Lower  Engadine, like Ftan, Lavin, Vná, Tschlin and all the others. All the people were very open, friendly and hospitable. So we want to give Scuol

Day 7: Until next time, Eustorians!

Since we didn’t really go to bed the previous night, it’s hard to draw a line between where the academy ended and this new day began. Probably somewhere between cleaning the mess on the ground floor and taking a shower. Flavio was

Day 6: A day to savour

We spent our last day working in Bad Scuol. In the morning, we were separated into four groups and had to roleplay a debate between various organisations on whether or not McDonalds is allowed to branch out in the Engadine Valley. The debate

Day 3, part two: Vná, somewhere in the mountains…

If they thought that Ftan was small, Vná definitely topped that off: 60 inhabitans and more cows than people. But let us read what Dorotea, Lory, Ilmars, Martyna and Rebecca told us about their visit: “Our group visited the village Vná. After

Day 3, part one: A miller’s tale

This day started really early with a bus trip to Ftán, a village high up in the mountains. We all visited two farms there, both doing ecological farming, and we got the chance of tasting bread and cheese. Afterwards we split

There are mountains at the end of the tunnel…

The evening before, we were told that they start serving breakfast at 6.30 and that we have to get going at 8.15. Jane:”So I set my alarm to 6.30 just to have a shower before everyone else does. It turned

Welcome to Switzerland

After an exhausting trip- except for Germán from Spain, who could travel business class due to overbooking-  all participants have arrived in Zurich, together with all their luggage! Tomorrow we will all leave Zurich and go on a three-hour train
