Hola, ¿qué tal?
Here I am again telling you about my second mounth of EVS in Calvià. If it is possible, I feel even luckier because it is just finished the “On arrival training week” and I can try to spread you all the positive vibes it gave me.
I couldn't think that my volunteering experience would have been even more exciting then it already was: I mean, I live in an amazing place, I wake up every morning full of energy for my work at the elderly centre, I spend my free time visiting around with lovely people... what else?
¡El curso de formación a la llegada! It has really been the “spice” of this volunteering project. So many emotions I felt that it will be very hard giving them an order. First of all: can you try to think about a training? Can you picture how it would be a whole week of learning activities squeezed in 8 hours per day? Perfect, now just delete everything! Yes, because I have never learnt so many things in a such enjoyable and amusing way. Thanks to the non-formal activities I have had lots of input to think about.
It has been also a valuable experience meeting the other volunteers from the Balearic Islands, knowing better different cultures from all around Europe, making new friends and having fun with all the activities both indoor and outdoor as, for example, the unforgettable trip to Valdemossa (a village in the Sierra de Tramuntana, part of the UNESCO Heritage).
Well, now we are back to our “normal” lives and I have to confess that it is a bit hard, but I feel also that all the words said during the training, all the emotions got from the other people known there, all the feelings and the thoughts shared will be part of me for all this experience and beyond.
Ready for the next challenge!
