It’s already the 4th day of the SENINTER pilot test, which is currently taking place in Emilia Romagna. All European partners who have been involved in this project for several months already, have often wondered how it would be when our program for the trip would actually come true. We have always believed in SENINTER as a tool for breaking seasonality, walking towards a more sustainable model of tourism and, first of all, giving participants (this time, Slovenian grandparents and their grandchildren) the chance to live an unforgettable experience together… Sometimes expectations are widely met, and this seems to be one of those cases.
Now we are able to complete our program for the pilot trip with pictures of travelers who are happy of getting to know Europe in the best way it can be known, through its people. Italian and Slovenian grandparents and children are having a great time together, sharing proudly their differences and the many things they have in common.
Scroll down to see some pictures on how the schedule for a trip turns into a memory for lifetime…

Have you ever seen a funniest way of building up intergenerational links and European citizenship?!
