Last summer IYC went to the west of Europe, to a country known for its wine and cheese, rich history, medieval cities, alpine villages and Mediterranean beaches. With our campsite next to a river, a vineyard or high up in the Pyrenees. For two weeks this lovely place in France was our home.
Here we connected with France, with the local people, with the surroundings, the cold water of the waterfall, the rocks, the astonishing view but most of all: with each other.
During the hike we discovered how beautiful the Pyrenees are, how friendly the people and how rewarding a cold dive into a river is after the whole day of hiking.
At night we warmed our tired bodies at the campfire, while drinking hot chocolate and having interesting conversations.
We are already looking forward to next year’s camp!
