We were able to meet and socialise with people from totally different backgrounds. It made the experience much more remarkable and unforgettable – it became much more varied and unique. It allowed me to understand, take and see things from a different perspective, and not stress out about everything so much. Instead, it reassured me that it wasn’t impossible.
