LVIVin' La Vida Loca

Organized by AEGEE-Lviv

LVIVin' La Vida Loca Profile Picture
Just imagine... It’s late summer evening. You are pretty tired after a long day and preparing to go to sleep. Tomorrow you’re gonna start again your daily routine in the city you live in. You set up your alarm, check final notifications on your phone. Everything is so quiet and calm. You lay on your bed, close your eyes and then... BAAAAM!

Woah! Suddenly, you find yourself in a city with a smell of coffee and the sound of street musicians, enchanted by beautiful architecture and incredible atmosphere. You’re not alone, a group of cheerful and friendly people surround you and you feel they are about to become your good friends. They say you’re in Lviv and now you see why it’s called the soul of Ukraine. Your guides show you the most special and impressive parts of the city. Surprisingly, you’re not on your feet anymore - you explore the city riding a bicycle. It’s getting darker and now you get to know what is famous pub crawl in Lviv. The most extraordinary pubs and places open their doors to your team, then a great thematic party and you want this night to last forever. What? Now you are out of the city about to try rope jumping. You're a little scared but more excited - the view is breathtaking, awesome people are around and you feel you are brave enough to do that. Oh, what kind of vehicle is that? It’s a famous Ukrainian train. Yes, you are moving to another picturesque city of Ukraine, to the south, to the ‘pearl’ of Black sea. Fruitful activities mixed with relaxed time at the seaside and the charm of Odessa fill you up with new energy but your adventure isn’t over. Ladies and gentlemen, next stop is countryside in wild Ukrainian mountains. You are in a boat together with your team rafting down the river with a wonderful nature around you’ve never seen before. Evening arrives, and now it’s cosy atmosphere with your friends at the fireplace and some of you singing and playing the guitar. On the spur of the moment, you are reaching a new goal - conquering the highest mountains in Ukraine, the Carpathians. Finally, it’s dark and you are celebrating European night, you are celebrating life. Boring life is somewhere far away. You are here. You are living the moment. You are making the most of your summer and creating memories you won’t ever forget.

You wake up. Now you’re in your bed. What was that? What has just happened? You’ve been dreaming about LVIV’in la vida loca, my friend. And this dream is so real to come true!

Are you ready for something great and unforgettable? Then brace yourself, apply to the summer of your life and become a part of a real lifetime adventure! And we will show you what LVIV’in la vida loca is ;)
