This summer I wanted to make a different trip. From the website I found the opportunity to participate in the trip to Gambia with Mirada Oberta. I contacted Anna Ferrer, she is the person who leads this project, she explained the proposal to me and I started to excite myself. I did not know anyone of the members of the trip, but I thought it was a good opportunity and that was no obstacle. I did not understand very well what it was about, I really went with few expectations and the heart and mind were wide open ... We met, we introduced ourselves and there I thought that this trip would go well, I had very good vibes. People who want to travel together in solidarity have a special spirit. On July 21st, 2015 at 6pm we meet at El Prat airport and we started all together a very intense 7 day adventure full of good projects, very emotional moments and unforgettable memories. The Gambia, a magical, beautiful country, surrounded by beautiful greens and the Gambia River with all its majesty. We met their inhabitants, simple and welcoming people, with few resources and with a great heart. We met the country from within, not as tourists but as a group of people who wanted to know the country from within, surrounded by themselves and with cooperation projects full of enthusiasm and good wishes. We were very welcomed, they took us to places where the traveler's eye are hard to come by. It was a luxury our stay at "Berefet Camp" some bungalows led by Luis and Maria, who made our stay unbeatable. This wonderful trip helped us understand and know from within what is behind an NGO or a cooperation project, how it works, how they work, and all of their infrastructure. Anna led the group always watching for us and attentive to any setbacks. Everything was marvelous, great, fantastic ... I have no more adjectives to define it. From here I thank you for making this trip as it was. I have returned from Gambia with very good memories, very good vibes, great experiences and good friends. It has been a totally recommended trip, which does not end when you arrive in Barcelona, it becomes a trip with many values and with images impacted in our retina and our hearts.
