From the 29th of November to the 1st of December, we had a Meeting in Madrid of the KA2 HOSTVET Project. It was a very successful meeting where all partners from the different countries (Italy, Portugal, Greece and Spain) contributed explaining the activities done in their regions. Also, we discussed about the next tasks and all the financial, organization and coordination points of the project.
One part of this meeting was a visit organized by the hosts, MAD for Europe, to a touristic company where a lot of students do an Erasmus+ internship there. The name of this company is “Madrid Segway” and it consist in a place where clients go to rent segways, bicycles and other transports to explore the Retiro Park, the most important park in the city centre of Madrid. Apart from this, the company also explain to the clients the history of the Retiro, the curiosities and very interesting information.
All partners visited this place where the owner explain the main objective of the company, the function and how has been the situation before and after the COVID. Because of the pandemic, Madrid Segway has been one of the companies that had to adapt to the situation including new tools and ideas to maintain the number of clients, and they are having very positive feedback. This company is one example of a touristic place that has worked a lot to improve during these times.
Also, there were some interns working at that time there, so they talked about their experience on their work. They were from Italy and they told to the participants that the work they are doing in Madrid is really good and very positive for their future.
