The Moroccon traveller Ibn Batuta considered experience gained through travels to be a more important source of knowledge than books. To gain knowledge about other cultures and to share one’s own, make you more dynamic.

IMPRESSIONS OF DENMARK

Denmark is known for its stunning coastlines, cosmopolitan capital, contemporary designs of the structures and rolling country sides.
We had an exchange programme with Denmark. We arrived at Copenhagen on 13th May 2016. The city is full of open spaces and is ideal place to stroll and ride the bike. My host lived in the heart of a beautiful countryside near Haslev, which is about 60km from the capital. I along with my host explored the long distance, picturesque trails on foot. One could actually sense the beauty of nature. During the trip of 8 days, we along with the Danish teachers and friends visited their school, got an idea about their education system, and attained a lot of knowledge. We visited a church, a cliff, which is a UNESCO world heritage site, situated on the shore, where Denmark shares its border with Sweden. In Copenhagen we took a cruise ride along a canal and saw the little mermaid statue, beautiful churches, royal castles, ancient wooden boats and the colourful canal houses painted yellow to red. On the last day, we had farewell dinner. It was heartbreaking for all of us because I did not want to leave my Danish friends and Denmark. Upon our return, I have a bag full of beautiful and precious memories. I’ll never forget this exchange programme which gave me an opportunity to know the rich heritage of Danes and experience their lifestyle.” - By Shivi Thareja (Class : X-A).

“What I have realized in one week at Denmark is that it is a nation with happiness scattered all around with some best quality of life. Beyond the capital and the bigger cities, Denmark offers a mix of lively towns like Haslev, where we stayed, medieval churches, ancient castles, the sleekest modern design one will see and the people who invented Lego-who could ask for more?“ - By Bharti Mishra (Class : X-B).

“Denmark has been one of my best trips I have ever been to. It is one of the most beautiful , clean and peaceful country and with warm, funny and kind people. I am glad that I got an opportiunty to stay at a complete stranger's house because it made me learn a lot of things that I wouldn't have been able to learn if I had stayed in a hotel. I got to learn about their daily life routine and how they treat their guests. It's just shocking how straight forward they all are.

I had a lot of fun and made so many new friends that I couldn't have even thought of. Altogether, it was a great experience that I will never forget.” - By Jaspriya Kaushik (Class : XII-A).
