15th April - Wednesday

Wednesday was a really long and amazing day, we travelled to Ljubljana, which is the capital city of Slovenia. It is pretty big and really beautiful. We arrived at the high school at 7:45 a.m and we took a bus that took us to Ljubljana in one and a half hour.

First, we attended a workshop in Ustvarjalnik headquarters which was great fun. Matija, the conductor, was really funny. We had already met him the previous day because he came to the high school to give us a workshop on entrepreneurship. We stayed there for 2 hours and had a good time. We performed some tasks but our favourite was the marshmallow challenge. We had to use spaghetti sticks, string and masking tape to build a freestanding tower as tall as possible and then we had to put a sweet on top of it. In the end just one team managed to do it, and it wasn't mine or Pilar’s, ha ha ha.

Then we visited Woodstock, which is a young successful company run by young people from Slovenske Konjice who make wood glasses and, to be honest, they were pretty cool.

After that we started a sightseeing tour at Preseren Square and were guided through beautiful streets and squares and we had the chance to see the most important sights of Ljubljana such as the Dragon Bridge, the Central market, the Town  Hall or the Cathedral of Saint Nicholas. After that we had free time, so most of the students went to McDonalds to end up shopping for about an hour and a half and it was really warm but we enjoyed a lot.
