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.


One of the best things about summer are undoubtedly the festivals. I love going to festivals in Hungary so I was very glad that I could get to go to some here, too. Especially, that the Zöld Nap Association (including me) was invited to all these programs.


I have marked a small date on my calendar: July 8, a month since I live in Romania. To be honest, I have a feeling that it has not been more than two weeks, but the events were so many, that it seems to me I had spend here almost 1 year! It is believed that the EVS project, especially long-term, is an exit from your comfort zone. Whether my territory before the project was uncomfortable, or I was different from everyone, but I did not feel out of this zone.


From 24 to 30 June, I, Carmen and Zsofi we have participated at OAT training course for EVS volunteers under the Erasmus+ Programe. The training was organized for EVS volunteers who will be in Romania for at least 2 months. Turkey, Jordan, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Moldova, Serbia, Hungary, Ukraine, Belgium, France and Russia was present at the training.

Summarizing that means: 34 people from 12 countries.

Age: 18 to 27 years, 4 coaches.

And a sea of emotions!


What motivates a person to participate in an EVS project? While you are a student-it's a thirst for adventure, testing yourself, the will to travel. What motivates a person who graduated from College, got a good job, career opportunities, her own small apartment? What drives me?
