I´m writing this already in one of the most extrange July in my life. Why it´s so strange? It´s actually cold and rainy. It´s like March in Spain, but with that summer holidays atmosphere. So, if i’m writing this already in July (3rd) , that means three things:
1- In one month i’ll be already flying to Spain
3- June have just finished.
And that’s what i wanted to come to. This is my blog about June.
June has been my favourite month in Estonia. If you want to know why, just keep reading this article
June marked the first time I fell somewhat seriously ill. Considering I work around children, it was inevitable.
So, this is the first month where I've had to properly contend with the concept of boredom at work. However, my quest to learn Estonian continues, as my tutor suggested I read the Little Prince in Estonian. I understood a gratifying amount, and I could follow the story well enough. Obviously it helps that this wasn't my first time reading the book. Luckily I didn't understand quite enough for the ending to tug too hard on my heart strings.
The time I have left here in Estonia is slipping through my fingers. June went by faster than I could even look, although the days I actually spent working in the youth centre can be counted on one hand (exactly 5; and next month is not gonna be any better).
Instead, I visited many camps, made some trips and had the chance to cross many things off of my to do list (most of which include water, since luckily most of the time it was very sunny and warm and summer-y) For example: I swam in the Baltic sea, I swam in Mustjõgi, I rope-swinged into the water in Valka, I jumped from the tower into the lake in Tõrva (even though not yet from the highest platform – but I'll hopefully still have a chance to overcome my fear and do the 10m tower also) and I wore a traditional Estonian folk dress.
30. juulist 2. augustini toimub 14-19aastastele kodutütardele ja noorkotkastele võistlusmatk "Kuperjanovlaste rada".
Matk saab alguse Kaldavere turismitalu juurest Valga vallast. Osaleda saab 4liikmeliste võistkondadena, sh on lubatud segavõistkonnad.
Võistlusmatka pikkus on orienteeruvalt 70km. Liikuda tuleb jalgsi kontrollpunktist - kontrollpunkti vastavalt etteantud järjestusele ning ajagraafikule. Kontrollpunktides tuleb täita etteantud ülesandeid. Võistkond peab kogu matka jooksul hakkama saama stardist kaasa võetud vahenditega ja ilma igasuguse kõrvalise abita. Söömaajad ja puhkepausid jäävad rajal olles võistkonna planeerida.
May is already gone. Will come back in around eleven months, but now we can just talk about him like we talk about people who is far but we now will meet again. May is, in some way, who i was in September when i arrived to Estonia. What kind of adventures or amazing histories will this eleven months bring to May? Will may be okay all this time? May-be.
