Thanks to ZSE’s participation in Erasmus + projects, I
was able to participate once again in a trip to the beautiful city of Seville.
However, this time my trip had a different purpose.
Previously, I was a guardian of the youth undergoing
internships in Spanish companies, but now my visit was of a monitoring nature
because of my function (head of practical training).
Seville welcomed us with quite a different weather. It was still
warm but the rains
were a surprise.
Despite this, it was
nice to visit already known places.
And it was even more pleasant to explore new
attractions, which are countless in Seville –
for example Flamenco show or football teams stadiums.
The trip to Portugal was pretty smooth. For some of my tripmates it was the first time they were on the plane. I could see that it was defenitely a great experience for them.
In Lisbon we were accommodated in a small hotel with a beautuful view just opposite Basílica da Estrela.
On the first day we were in the most important places in Lisbon, I mean for example:
Belém Tower (Torre de Belém) an UNESCO World Heritage Site. That played a key role in Europe’s Age of Discoveries, since it served both as a fortress and as a port from where Portuguese explorers departed to establish what would be the first European trade in history with China and India. It also served as a ceremonial gateway to Lisbon.
Hieronymites Monastery is a former monastery of the Order of Saint Jerome near the Tagus river in the parish of Belém.
All these places were at the Alfama, which is the oldest district on Lisbon.
Next day we spent in the educational center ‘’CINEL’’ and we met our new friends- Spanish and Portugese students. Our new friends were wonderful! We spent a very good time with them.
In the evening we were invited for the supper to the one of the most eldest restaurants in Lisbon. We had a great time there tasting delicious traditional Portugese meals. The following days we took part in a some kind of lectures prepared by our teacher in Cinel. After the classes we could spend our time on visting the most famous monuments in Lisbon. Our last day in Portugal was unforgettable. We were at Quinta da Regaleira. It is considered one of the principal tourist attractions of Sintra. The property consists of a romantic palace and chapel, and a luxurious park that features lakes, grottoes, wells, benches, fountains, and a vast array of exquisite constructions. The palace is also known as “The Palace of Monteiro the Millionaire”, which is based on the nickname of its best known former owner, António Augusto Carvalho Monteiro. Thanks to Raul We had an opportunity to visit a gorgeous castle in Sintra Regaleira Palace. There were a lot of symbols. On our way to Sintra we had a chance to see a lovely tourist city Cascais, Boca do Inferno and Cabo da Roca We were really impressed by these places. This trip to Portugal was something amazing for me. That was a nice opportiunty to gain a knowledge of diffrent country and to meet wonderfull people and their culture.
Traineeship of Spain was a remarkable experience. Classes at school
taught us the wirings curious about the thing associated with systems.
Seeing the mechanical studio was most surprising, it is something what
is missing at our school. Teachers in charges of classes were of help
and explained if something was not understandable. If somebody is
thinking whether it is worthwhile going for such a departure, the reply
is simple – it is worthwhile
Being in the CINEL training center we had the opportunity to learn about the functioning of small flying machines such as drones. As you can see from the photos we had a great time and we also learned a lot of useful things.
We had dealings with several types of drones.
And of course with different types of control.Lessons were very interesting just a pity that they ended so soon.
For me one of the best parts of the trip was the practice about fiber
optic because in my current course I
can´t learn this.

When we were in Portugal, we enjoyed a stay with our Erasmus mates. It
was one of the best experience of my life. I met good people I learnt things like the fusion
of Optic Fibre and micro soldering and a little bit of robotics.

Erasmus+ rroject is a wonderful
experience that I advise all teachers interested in improving their methods of
teaching their students. It is also a very nice way to overcome barriers
between countries and meet fantastic people.
Best wishes for Karlos, Gustave, Hanna, Ella, Joao, Raul and Bożena.

And never forget to laugh, when you take a picture you have to
On the 21st March I had the opportunity to participate in one of
Erasmus+ projects organised by my school. I was given a chance to see how the
life looks like in the capital city of Portugal and compare it with what I know
from my daily life.
During this week I could exchange experiences with my colleagues from
Spain and Portugal and learn new skills. I participated in some of CINEL’s
lessons, such as micro welding or drons programming.
The lessons were well organised and the teachers were so kind to answer all our more or less dumb questions.
Apart from school activities and lessons, we travelled around the
Lisbon, which is a really cosy and warm city. Just in March there were 26C
We have also dropped into Sintra. I’ve felt in love with this little yet charming and picturesque city at first sight.
Also it was so exciting to
stand on the westernmost place in Europe – Cabo da Roca. I wish projects like
this would happen more often and I could take part in it at least once more!
