For the first time ever IYC spent two adventurous weeks on the beautiful countryside of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Far, far away, in the south east of Europe, nestled amongst the countries of the Balkan Peninsula and the beautiful Adriatic Sea!
During these two weeks we got to know each other, the country, the beautiful nature and the lovely Bosnian people. Although the wetter was hot, we hiked around for a couple of days. Rewarded with campfires and good conversations in the evening and the refreshing water of the river near our second campsite.
The weeks flew by and the last day we celebrated our last day together. This was a day filled with amazing acts, delicious food, spontaneous dances and a lot of laughter (and some tears).
We are already looking forward to next year’s camp!
