The Gladmat festival in Stavanger

Sjømatfristelser på Gladmat - hummer som får tennene til å løpe i vannSjømatfristelser på Gladmat - hummer som får tennene til å løpe i vann

To sum up this years festival in one word; success! The weather was great all the time, 200 000 people visited Stavanger, and we could see smiles everywhere. The police are happy, and the security people had nothing to do. As a foreign journalist said;  - This is the best branding for the Stavanger region as the food capital of Norway you can ask for.

Arne Brimi, the famous chef, said there is nothing like this in any part of the world. - Other places invite great superstars to attract an audience, Stavanger doesn't need it to have 200 000 people visit the food festival, he said.

This year Gladmat has taken the cultural program of the festival to a new level, and people like it. Madeleines Food theatre from Denmark filled up at Tou Scene. The poetry hike to Dalsnuten in Sandnes and the Cultural dinner at Hå gamle prestegard were great experiences.

Gladmat is the place to be to show off news, great traditions and all kinds of food stuff. Welcome back next year!

Here is Portugal

PORTUGAL! Abroad...

Cá está Portugal! Olá ao mundo do sonho!!

Here are the groups of students who went to Bristol and to Stavanger trying to build a new world! They've learned a lot, and they'll never forget that life can be easier if we are closer to each other. Unfortunately, Portugal is the only country in this project not being financed by the European Agency. We pay our dreams... Nevertheless, we go on working and trying to improve our country and our youth. As Martin Luther King once said , "We have a dream!" . So, we are working on it.

Let us tell you some about our project: We are understanding the importance of the differences to build a different world. We've met new friends, new homes and even new families. We've learned new words, new realities and new meanings for friendship. This is our project and we are proud for making part of it
We are looking forward to meeting our friends here, in Portugal, in Portalegre. We are looking forward to telling them about our daily routine and our culture. Please come and visit us!


This blob looks a good way to communicate. Will use it.
