They tell us
Spanish course in Benidorm
Province of Alicante, Community of Valencia
7 to 11th November, 2021
We begin this report with the genesis of the adventure and the much desired initiative of Antonia from Valencia Jumelages, inviting us to this Spanish course. Obliged to abandon the reunion planned in Murcia in 2020 as a consequence of the health issues of our dear and very devoted organiser, Camilo, and also due to this damned pandemic together with lockdown, our disappointment was enormous. I take this opportunity to pass on our best regards to Camilo who has led us for so long on the roads to the discovery of Spain, its language, patrimony and traditions. Thank you Camilo. We think of you a lot. I am not forgetting Maria Louisa and her Madrid team’s investment who concocted gatherings that remain vivid in our memories. I, we, are deeply grateful to them. Antonia picked up the flickering flame of our exchanges. We appreciate her dedication and we express our most sincere friendship. As soon as the offer was published hope was rekindled and the inscriptions flowed in.
Finally, the French language course in Montpellier from 18th - 25th September 2021 could take place! The language course had been postponed for a year because of Corona. Not all participants from Germany and Spain came who were planning to do so in 2019.
The event was carried out under the strictest French Corona regulations. In the hotel, in all restaurants and indoors, the pass sanitaire was checked and a mask had to be worn. All were vaccinated and this gave us optimal Covid security.
Two Eurojumelages activities with 56 participants took place simultaneously in Benidorm from 7th – 13th November 2021: The activity "In the sun of Benidorm" and the first Spanish language course since the corona pandemic.
On 28th August 2021, Peter Backes, the chairman of Eurojumelages, together with the 1st Boule-Treff Bad Breisig and the Bonn association, invited members of Eurojumelages to participate in the 10th International Boule Tournament, in Bad Breisig.
