III Reunión Transnacional - II Encuentro de estudiantes ESTONIA

    Del 21 al 25 de mayo de 2018 tiene lugar en Kuressaare (Estonia) la III Reunión Transnacional y el II Encuentro de estudiantes del proyecto ROUTE DOCS.
    La delegación española está formada por cuatro alumnas de 1º de Bachillerato: Luisa Schmid, Luna Keller, Sofía Vanderschoot y Aurora Villalobos; y tres profesores del centro: Clemente Díaz (Tecnología), Féliz Rodríguez (Física y Química) y Sandra Reyes (Lengua y Literatura).
    La lejanía no nos permite hacer el viaje en un día, así que tenemos que hacer noche en Madrid tanto a la ida como a la vuelta.

Domingo 20 de mayo de 2018

    Tras hacer escala en Helsinki y sin maletas, por fin llegamos a Tallín. En el aeropuerto ya nos esperan los anfitriones y la delegación de Portugal, que nos acompañan en el sentimiento y también están sin equipaje.
    Cuando llegan las delegaciones de Croacia y Turquí emprendemos viaje hacia Kuressaare, en la isla de Saaremaa. Hora y media de guagua hasta Virstu, 20 minutos en ferry hasta Muhu y una hora más hasta nuestro destino final.
    En Kuressaare somos recibidos por las familias de acogida y por una plaga de mosquitos al acecho de sangre fresca que nos acompañará toda la semana. La temperatura es veraniega, aunque estemos sólo a finales de mayo.


    Saaremaa es una isla, la mayor de Estonia, del tamaño de Tenerife (aproximadamente), casi completamente llana y muy verde.

Lunes 21 de mayo de 2018

    Kuressaare Ametikool es un centro de Formación Profesional cuyos estudiantes ascienden a más de mil y proceden de todas partes de Estonia. Suelen alojarse en el hostal o en el hotel del propio colegio de lunes a viernes. Los fines de semana visitan a sus familias, algunos soportando trayectos de más de cuatro horas, como los que viven en Tallín.

    Nos dan la bienvenida la coordinadora, Elle Mäe, el director, el señor Neeme Rand y la señora Tiiu Aro, representante luterana de la parroquia de Saaremaa. El director no da una charla muy interesante sobre la inversión y el sistema educativo de Estonia, uno de los mejores de Europa.



Guiados por algunos alumnos visitamos las instalaciones del centro. Empezamos por algunas aulas multidisciplinares, el comedor y el restaurante donde muchos estudiantes realizan sus prácticas.


Seguimos por la biblioteca, lugar que invita al estudio, la lectura o el descanso.


En el campus de Kuressaare tenemos estudios de peluquería, diseño gráfico y textil, fotografía y muchos otros.


En el campus de Upa, a veinte minutos de Kuressaare, tenemos estudios de mecánica, construcción, carpintería...


Después de almorzar, asistimos en el ayuntamiento a una charla sobre Economía y Turismo en Saaremaa.


Seguidamente jugamos a la búsqueda del tesoro en el castillo episcopal de Kuressaare, una actividad lúdica y divertida en grupos multinacionales de alumnos y profesores, que nos ayudó a descubrir esta joya del siglo XVI.



Martes 22 de mayo de 2018

El martes empezamos el día con la III Reunión Transnacional. Todas las delegaciones analizamos lo que se ha hecho hasta ahora y lo que está por venir. Establecemos plazos para actividades y tareas, así como fechas para nuestras próximas movilidades de Portugal y Croacia durante el curso 2018-2019.


Durante la segunda parte de la mañana nos hemos puesto al día con las actividades. Se han presentado los pósters promocionando Tenerife por parte de todas las delegaciones. En la sección de actividades colgaremos pronto los trabajos de todas las delegaciones, para que puedan disfrutar de la visión que tienen de nuestra tierra en otros países europeos.


Los alumnos participantes han tenido que presentar en inglés los 10 mejores sitios para visitar en cada país. Nuestras chicas deslumbraron al público con su dominio del inglés y su perfecta exposición:


El día de trabajo finaliza con un taller de tratamiento de vídeo y edición fotográfica para los alumnos del proyecto:


Miércoles 23 de mayo de 2018

El miércoles visitamos la zona oeste de la isla de Saaremaa. Empezamos por el cráter formado por un meteorito en Kaali:

Los molinos de viento de Angla contribuyeron a sostener a la población en las época más difíciles. Uno de ellos ha sido restaurado completamente y está en funcionamiento.



Una joya medieval, la iglesia de Santa Catalina, en Karja. Una de las pocas iglesias católicas de un país que hoy en día es mayoritariamente luterano.




Los acantilados de Panga son una curiosidad en una isla que es casi plana y cuya montaña más alta sólo mide 54 metros.



Dicen que si te lavas la cara con las aguas termales de los riachuelos de Odalätsi habrás encontrado el secreto de la eterna juventud.


Los terrenos que hoy ocupa el Parque Nacional de Vislandi fueron devueltos a los estonios, pero durante muchos años pertenecieron a terratenientes alemanes. Hoy día el edificio principal es un hotel.


En Lümanda disfrutamos de una comida preparada con ingredientes ecológicos:


Por la tarde, un paseo por la playa de Mändjala en cuyo camping disfrutamos también de un nuevo deporte: el disc golf.


Jueves 24 de mayo de 2018

Durante nuestro último día en Saaremaa visitamos la zona este. Empezamos dando un paseo de unos 4,8 km por la zona boscosa de Koigi bog:


El almuerzo tuvo lugar en Orissaare, a los pies del Árbol europeo del año 2015, un roble que ha sobrevivido pese a estar en medio de un campo de fútbol.



En la vecina isla de Muhu, conectada con Saaremaa por carretera, visitamos una granja de avestruces y otros animales exóticos.


Ya de vuelta en Kuressaare, por la tarde pudimos degustar una cena preparada por las familias de acogida y algo de música para poner el punto final a nuestra estancia en Saaremaa.


Todas las delegaciones recibimos nuestros certificados de participación



Viernes 25 de mayo de 2018

El viaje de vuelta a Tallín dura unas cuatro horas. Así que el viernes por la tarde y por la noche, pudimos visitar la capital de Estonia y despedirnos definitivamente de nuestros amigos hasta nuestro próximo encuentro.

Students' Questionnaire


Nuestros alumnos muestran sus preferencias a la hora de viajar. Los resultados se presentan por país y son muy interesantes.


Luisa Schmid

Last week with our new friends from Croatia, Turkey, Portugal and Estonia was a great experience. During these days, we learnt a lot about other and different cultures, made new friends and also heard interesting things we didn’t know about our island.



On Sunday when we had to receive our host, I was really nervous because I didn´t know what was expecting me the  following week: if I would like the people, if they would like me... but in the end there was no reason to be nervous. 


All the week we did a full programm, we went to all the famous places from Tenerife, we visited La Laguna, the Teide National Park, El Medano, the Siam Park, we did sightseeing... We also visited a special hotel adapted for handicaped people, we did interesting workshop at school... In our free time, on Tueday we went all together to the beach and played volleyball, talked, learnt things about them and grew together.



This week has been a new experience for me and I’m glad to be part of this project. I met new people from other countries, I also had the opportunity to meet and know better the people with whom I go to school and share a classroom.


At the last day, we went to the Siam Park and I think this activity was the one in which we grew together most, we overcame together some attractions, talked and laughed a lot and had an awesome time.
I was really surprised to see how hard it could be to say goodbye to people that you only knew for some days, how much a group can grow together in five days and how much you can miss them.

I’m really looking forward to see some people again when I travel in May and I hope I will have the same great experience that we had last week.

Aurora Villalobos



I will try to write what it has meant for me to participate in this wonderful Route Docs program of the Erasmus + project, but I must say that it is impossible to express in words all that I have experienced and realized along this intense and beautiful week.
It all started by picking up Stela, a Croatian student, at the airport, to share with me and my family these days. This has been a great experience for me, since in addition to practicing the English language I was able to have the experience of having a sister again.

In this way, I have been able to share with her and other students of the program all that our beloved island of Tenerife offers us. We have been able to enjoy its charm thanks to its diversity, climate, authenticity and, above all, its volcanic origin.
On Monday, we had the opportunity to start with an official act of welcome by authorities, to continue with a guided tour along the High School. Then, in order to get to know the south of the island, its wonderful fine sand beaches that run along most of its coast with its warm temperature and constant sun, we went to the Hotel Mar y Sol located in Los Cristianos and in El Médano, we could observe various water sports, such as Wind surf or Kite surf.
To continue, on Tuesday we were doing different activities in the school, such as choosing the logo of our project, reproduction of the Istanbul video, Job-shadowing, workshop and conference Video and Photography Edition. In the afternoon, all the students of the project went to eat at the beach and spend a good afternoon bathing and laughing.


Wednesday was a very exciting day, as we had the opportunity to head towards Vilaflor, the highest town in Spain, and reach the Teide National Park.
 Here we could go through the typical landscapes in which all the foreigners take photos, as is Roque de García with the volcanic cone in the background. We took a group photo, which was then published in the local newspaper of Arona. We were in the Visitors Center of Cañada Blanca and El Portillo. In the museum we learned about the geological, botanical and archaeological aspects of the Park. Back to our houses we made stops at different viewpoints, such as La Tarta.
 

In order to know the Metropolitan Area, center of the busy life of the island, on Thursday we headed to La Laguna. Place where many of the cultural and leisure events take place, with a rich historical and architectural legacy of Tenerife, with its emblematic museums, squares and parks. We toured the wide pedestrian streets framed by buildings and palaces of La Laguna, the only city of the Canary Islands that has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1999, which moved us several centuries ago. We end the day moving to La Orotava, to visit the Tajinaste Winery located in volcanic land of the island that gives its wines unique tonalities and character. Highlighting the Malvasia, berry used since ancient times to elaborate the precious Canary wines that were exported to Europe and writers like William Shakespeare and Walter Scott make reference in their works.



With four intense days behind us, Friday arrived. During this day we were able to visit the Aloe Park to end the exciting visit to Siam Park. We enjoyed the different attractions very much and we were able to strengthen bonds of friendship with all the young people of the project. Finally, the Canarian mothers and fathers gave us a succulent farewell dinner with the collaboration of musical acts by teacher Esmeralda and the student Luna, who delighted us and made us spend an unforgettable farewell.
I have been very happy to participate in this project and week, which has given us the opportunity to show our island of Tenerife with its authentic traditions, parties, cuisine and friendly people that characterizes it.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to participate.

Dear Erasmus + committee,

   Last week was an amazing and unforgettable week from the first day to de last one.
I met a lot of people and I made a lot of friends too.

   The first day in the project I was a little bit nervous. I went with my parents to the airport to pick my girl up.
When she was already with us, we went back home. The girl was nervous too. That day we didn’t do anything special because she was very tired. We only went to a restaurant to have lunch with my family and then, in the afternoon, we went to Los Cristianos to meet with my friends and hers.
   That night we went to sleep so early because she was very tired and me too.

   The following days we went to different places from Tenerife like El Médano, La Laguna, Vilaflor...
Sometimes we went by foot, but mostly by bus. Some places were more interesting than others. My favorite one was La Orotava. I never have been there. The weather is cold and wet and the ground is very green.

   The last day was funny but a little bit sad too because they started going back home. That day there was a party in the high school. After that party, we went to the beach and we spent all night there, having fun.

   My girl was a bit shy and very friendly. The first days we both were shy to each other, but along the week we started being less shy. The bad thing is that we couldn’t communicate at all because she didn’t understand me, but it was funny because we spoke with signs. She was a good girl, very polite.

   And finally, I want to say thank you to Erasmus + committee for choosing me for this project and have the opportunity of meeting people from different countries and cultures and thank you to Sandra, for make the project happen.
