A Georgian-Swiss Lovestory
This week is really special at KISC. It is not only the last week for us Summer ’14 Shorties, we also have two smiles of the week this week!
We are Gega,22 from Georgia and Jessica,22 from Switzerland. We are having a fantastic summer here in Kandersteg.
The first day we met we didn’t notice each other, there were 68 other new people and it was overwhelming!
After a couple of days we went hiking together and we became really good friends.
Now, after 3 crazy months we are best friends and inseperable.
But not only us two, also our national scout associations are really close friends. There are several projects between Georgia and Switzerland running at the moment.
The Caucasus Cooperation Project (CCP) for example is a project that helps to strengthen the Georgian scout association with the help of Swiss scouts. There is also a woodbadge course with leaders and participants from both countries. This summer some Swiss scouts went to Georgia for their explorer belt.
As you can see, Switzerland and Georgia fit really well together and so do we.
This is just the beginning of a great friendship and we are sure, that we will meet again. Maybe in Switzerland, maybe in Georgia. For us it is not important, because home is where your friends are.
