We are in the months where time passes so fast and I don't want to get tired in the name of volunteering anymore...
Mid-term Meeting: Finally, we had face-to-face mid-term training. I think we were 12 volunteers in total, we had a great 2.5 days with our super fun trainers. In fact, it was great that education and simple volunteer training were not centralized. We just relaxed and had fun. We did a 12 km canoe trip that I don't even want to remember. Crazy,..
June is a month of comfort and new experience. The longer I stay in Estonia, the more I become attached to this country and people.
Trip to Pärnu
To begin with, Pärnu was on my list a must see, since I am a sea lover, and of water in general. So when other volunteers offered me to go, I immediately said yes. Of course, then the original plan changed a bit and we went there not just to visit the city, but also with the intention of staying overnight, in tents, on the seashore, as they say, life is unpredictable.
Valgamaa noored rändasid juuni algul mööda maakonda ning püüdsid videosse erinevaid tegevusi, millest võiks kohalik rahvas kui ka kaugemalt tulijad osa saada.
Mida külastati ja kuidas filmimine möödus, loe juunikuisest postitusest, mille kirjutas üks projektis osalevatest noortest: Rändasime mööda maakonda ja püüdsime videosse suviseid tegevusvõimalusi. Tegevusvõimaluste tutvustamisel on fookusesse võetud projektis osalevate noorte kodupiirkond.
June started for me with a little hangover. Vici celebrated her birthday on the last day of May and so I woke up the next morning a bit dehydrated and with a little headache. Even if I didn’t have the best start into the month, June became an activity packed month with the longest days I ever encountered. The first week was still a little bit slow paced and I was quite happy to again enjoy a normal week in the youth center. Already nearly the last one. The only downside to these days was the abnormal heatwave that conquered Estonia, with the thermometer reaching 35 degrees in our flat. But with the astonishing weather, low pandemic numbers and the longest day of the year approaching, big events started to come up daily.
... and less time at home - my motto for June (which will probably be continued in July)
Not only by traveling around Estonia, but also work kept me from spending much time in Valga, because this month I did not only changend Youthcenter but also had my first "real life" - training and the first summer camp.
