As you can see under the heading history, we visited many European and East-European countries in the last five decades. Our group took part in various international folkloric festivals and met many different people. Most of the times we were lodged privately in guest families, which enabled us to form stable friendships. But we also stayed in schools or student´s hostels. This often made the group stick together even more, as we sometimes had to share the same fate of little comfort but much fun. It was not few and far between that participants did not want to go back home due to new friendships, and often tears were shed abundantly. Pur visits to Hungary, Estonia, Serbia, Austria, Finland, Czechia, Ireland, Sweden, Norway, the Netherlands, the great trip to Greece, Prague,Mallorca and Portugal remained in our minds in great memory, of course.
