Again we change the hour, again spring, again the days are longest, again we see the people in the streets, the kids, the crows in the park...all is taking colour again. But...what's the sad side of this? I arrived last spring, then it's mean that my project it's almost over, my period here is ending and this is the sad side by thousand reasons. The strongest reason are my friends, they are already part of my family, they are the reason why I decided to continue, they push me all the time to continue, they saved me.
One hour less on the clock one hour more to reflect.
October it's almost ready, almost 6 months here, almost half year here and I have a lot of memories, new thoughts, new discoveries, more friends, new knowledges...and I have 6 months more to spend here and continue growing. This month have been calm, relax, we already changed the season, today we changed the hour, the color of the mountains are changing, the weather each day it's different and also is changing, cold, hot, rain, cloudy...even me.
The call of autumn...
After my last holidays and the last days with hot weather the autumn have just arrived to Kézdivásárhely. The leaves are starting to fall down and the cold weather is arriving. It's not so normal for me, as you know I live near the seaside in Spain, and actually there are more than 30 Celsius there. This week was here around 6 Celsius in the morning and this is the coldest day in winter in my city! I hope to be ready for the next months...
After almost 2 weeks on holidays I'm here again! I come back home for reload energy, for restart, to see everybody and step on the beach, my beach. It was amazing meet with my people, feel the humidity from the sea, feel the fireworks, feel that nothing had changed.
As you alredy know, my city is Elche, and it celebrate the local parties every August. This year was different, was more exciting,was a trip with other mentality but ejoyed so much.
Now its time to the return to the rutine, autumn is coming and we have a news objectives, news activities, news travels and news destinations.
Taking a break...
This is my last blog until holidays! Yes, I decided to take a break and come back to Spain. But don't worry, I will come back with more videos and more experiences about my EVS. Nine months more are waiting for me after my holidays!
First of all I'm so grateful to had participated in a summer camp with the children at beginning of August. Was a nice experience and also nice place. I could to practice my skills as a nutritionist and I was very happy about it.
With the arrival of the news volunteers I have been discovering new places and show them the town and surroundings. Before they arrive I was in Padureni Lake, but I didnt swim. Now I came back again and I could swim and enjoy it the place. Also was sunny so... what's I need more?!
Half of summer
And July its end, and start a new month with a lot of changes, news volunteers, news travels and I hope that finally the summer arrive to Kézdivásárhely. July was a rainning month and we had to postpone a lots of activities and events, but that didn't stop us.
I want to highlight my travel to Peleș Castle in Sinaia. We could to spend the night there and see the beautiful views. The problem was the foggy and the rain, but we continued with our trip, the raincoats saved us. Nonetheless we enjoyed it, and the people came there to visit the castle.
Three months here, three months learning, three months living the experiencia, three months with new feelings, and I have nine months more to enjoy it this.
Videoblog Carmencita part I
Hello! Hello! I have decided to do my first videoblog finally. I will start to show you all my experiencies here, my trips, my feelings, how EVS project is changing my life.
It's my first video in English and the first time that I do this. So, step by step I hope getting better and tell you more experiencies.
Here is my video and...enjoy it!
When your body says no, your mind says yes.
Almost a month here...I did my first trip outside my new home. We packed and met the Kezdi citizens and neighbours to start the pilgrimage.
Three days, approx. 65 km walking from home, interesting people, pilgrims from everywhere, mostly Hungarians but for the same reason to go to Csiksomlyo. We visited villages, beautiful landscapes, it was so entertaining, it was the time to refresh. It wasn`t easy, my leg soared and I had to stop. I couldn`t walk, the pilgrimage was about to end for me. I had done more than 30 km before, some parts with pain so...but my mind said I must finish this. I did. I arrived to the pilgrims` meeting point, it was crowded.
I’m here! I was waiting this moment, this experiencie, this change in my life for a few months. It’s not easy to live 3.200km from home, it’s not easy to leave your family, friends and your dog and it’s not easy to live without the food of my mother. But my mind said, do it, do it for yourself, for personal growth, to discover the world, the nature, the different people.
Green Sun Association gave the opportunity and I can describe my first feelings with a few words: I want more. I want more tours with bike, I want to know more about the city, I want to explore the country and surroundings, I want to visit more schools, I want to enter in the nature again, I want to continue doing sport, I want to give all of me. So...START THE ADVENTURE!
