In the summer of 2017, young ice hockey players from the town of Náchod in East Bohemia set off on a long-distance trip to Morocco, to participate in what was surely the most entertaining training camp they had ever experienced. The thing was, they did not just go there to play ice hockey. Perhaps even more importantly, they went to Morocco to get in touch with the local people and get immersed in their way of life.
A few months later, their visit was reciprocated by ice hockey players from the Moroccan town of Salé who went to the Czech Republic for the very same reason. This exchange trip fostered a lively dialogue between two different cultures, spiced up by many little surprises and doses of liberating humour.
