In the beginning is not so easy to find your place at home when you’re back from EVS project. You feel confused, empty although

You are happy to see your friends and family.You are missing the activities, new friends, the house, the village… even the instant coffe.

Lets make it clear: my project was a short term EVS in the small croatian village Veliki Zhitnik.Two amazing weeks full with dynamic, rhythm, a lot of energy and mostly smiles.

Oh, I’ve started again from the end…

It was day by day, routine, facebook, scroll scroll, until i’ve found a group where i’ve find this project.Without any procrastination, i’ve wrote a cover letter, sent it straight to the post owner – Lana, and then she have directed me to two other sunny girls, namely Petya and Lilly from AKSELS. We’ve met, we’ve fall in love with each other and after preliminary training in their office, after 979 kilometers we were in Croatia.

While parking we were welcomed by many smiled people.Until that moment I had no idea that those people are going to become my family.

Arranged in circle in the huge hall of the renovated ex village school in the little village, in the atmosphere there was a great and charging energy, everyone told how he get there, to this hidden and special place, one by plane, other hitchhiked from Morocc, other with bus and train.I’ve cried.

Every day at eight in the morning we were awakened by the Morning team with dynamic workout and yoga. After that breakfast and after – whole day adventures ! There was, hiking, rock climbing, orientation course, rallying activities for the group, amazing !The energy at this whole time was making you to surpass ourselves, every other day you are feeling better, completed, with more potential !

Everyone of the participants completed me in a unique way, that even my parents couldn’t do. This to see alive examples of the cultures of nine countries is indescribably, especially since
We were that united to complete every task with 100% success, exceeding even the wildest expectations of turnaround time.

Four days off… again we were together, but this time at the seaside !

By nature I’m a sea soul. Zadar is wonderful place with the taste of cypresses, sea salt, instant coffee and amazing food.

Cliff jumping, walkarounds, volleyball tournaments with the locals, hammocks, tents and long depth and sometimes mindblowing conversations. My favorite !

After the break, somehow naturally we united the positive emotions, knowlege and the love in Veliki Zhitnik in a small wonderful book about the region. But until that moment I did not have the faintest idea that I’m about to rediscover one more challenge!

The week of woodworking has begun… i’ve cried, cried of joy ! With enough tools, for two hours and twenty minutes, i’ve transformed one regular plank into bench, and when I say bench I mean it ! REAL BENCH ! And not only one, and not only benches ! 😀

In laughter, games and jokes the times passed by, showing us that it is the only resourse that we have in this world, except the woods.

In the beginning is not so easy to find your place at home when you’re back from EVS project. You feel confused, empty although

You are happy to see your friends and family.You are missing the activities, new friends, the house, the village… And then suddenly you realize that you have new set of skills, knowlege, meaning of life.One  И изведнъж осъзнаваш, че в теб са изградени нови знания, нови стойности за живот. and then awakens one desire for continuous development of warm, sincere and pure relationship with our environment – natural and social.And you’re going to carefully build a better world around them.
