To many of us the name ESI doesn’t ring a bell. But to some people it means a week of a lifetime.
Even I didn’t know What ESI was or what it was about. Luckily I saw it on the news and my dad said “Let’s visit this show”. But it way more that that! There are people from around the world to give some examples there were people from: Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, France ,Germany ,Russia ,Thailand, Tunisia, The United States And so many more. I have met some awesome people and I was so amazed with all of their projects!

There were so many other awesome projects. And I could write a whole book about the awesome projects that I saw there. And also thank you to all the people who gave me souvenirs! If I ever get to going to ESI 2017 in Fortaleza, Brazil I will defiantly give you some Belgian souvenirs or even Chocolate in return!

I hope that everyone had a safe journey, And I hope to see you back at ESI 2017 (If I get the chance to join)
