Well, the end is peaking out. This is going to be surely one of the lasts blog articles for me. Taking advantage that we are working on the youthpass -that official document which prove what you learn and which key competences you powered during this project-, I must to speak about how many learning proved me this year prowling around this area. But it will not repeat all that skills again and again… just to let you know that this was really worthy both at a personal and a pragmatic level.
Hello? Hello? Hello? is there anybody in there?
There must be someone according to the statistics of visiting. So… this is for you. I’m going to beg you focus on this post, for your fidelity, your curiosity, your free time, or whatever the reason you are reading this, I’m glad and proud because you are here. Thank you for your time and your random "facebook likes".
Just arrived from a historical trip around Poland, we find out that the cold wave which is wreaking havoc along Europe has not leave Romania aside. After facing with the lowest temperatures in my whole life (only in a few times the thermometer fell down below -20°C) here we found exactly the same… more snow and cold.
One year ago, by this time, one Facebook message from "Attila the boss" - that time i was not sure neither who he really was nor even if attila was his name or surname- saying the project had been approved, hence the 2016 faced amusing and gave me the chance to do something totally different until then. And it didn't disappointed. This year has become in something quite special. I met people all over the world, I discovered as deep as i could both this amazing country and their neighbours all gathering in a really different lifestyle and way of thinking.
Well, the end is peaking up through the horizon and now, after 9 months prowling around these lands, I could say that all is becoming more familiar to me. However, this means that the surprising factor is fading out due to the reason that day by day is harder to find new things. Afterall, this is how life is working. Due to this, I’m looking back and all the experiences and emotions I have collected in the EVS baggage, meanwhile the future is facing harsh and competitive.
Winter is here. Though the temperatures still will decrease until reach levels under -20oC, or even more, I have already dusted off the winter clothes. I admire how highlighted the season are in this region. The spring was spring, the summer, was warm almost always, and now the autumn came full of rain and the firsts snows. It is a fact that the climate change is wreaking havoc around the world, and here is not an exception, but still the cold is bringing some snow.
In many parts of the world there is a continuous figure of young people looking for work. Spain has one of the biggest unemployment rate of the hole Europe, and still remains mired in the biggest political crisis in its history, meantime we keep working and learning everyday by the hand of the Green Sun Association. We are lucky undoubtedly.
Just we arrived from the Adriatic Sea where we enjoyed some time with other members of Green Sun, is time to start thinking in work again.
But first, I would like to tell how our last trip went on. I have to say that the 14 border controls crossed and every one of the 2900 kilometres that we made in 10 days, totally worth, but I don’t want to drive any more kilometre until I will be in Spain this Christmas, cause yes, I will pass Christmas in family.
