November – even though the weather was not always the best, the month itself was quite interesting.
From cooking clubs to crafting clubs, I had a month full of different activities. And one thing that I have to mention as well, which is already here since weeks, is my excitement for Sweden. In a few days I will see one of my best friends again – and this in the amazing city Stockholm. Well, but now about this month.
October went by in a rush and yet it feels like a long time
Hi there! My name is Flora and I will spend my next 10 months (because one month is now already over) volunteering in Hargla. I basically just turned 18 before coming here from Germany, so in the final days before my flight I started to worry: was I actually prepared to live abroad for a year, learn a new language, live on my own and experience a new culture?
Time flies away!
My third month here in Estonia is already starting - unbelievable how fast the last two months went away. However, after those two months I can say: It is already my second home here in Estonia. I have good friedships and my work in the youth center is fabulous. So, life is great!
October ended with winter. If only very briefly.
Snow made a brief appearance, and then true to form, it melted away with the rain that followed immediately after. Weather is a harsh mistress. Still, even as I write these very lines, the rain beats down on the landscape, uncovering who knows what.
On arrival training.Exactly this training is probably one of the coolest events that takes place in the first months of a volunteer's life abroad.
And although it has been three months since I arrived to Estonia, I can say that arrival training has probably become one of the highlights of my volunteer life. Spanish adventures are still in the first place and I very much doubt that another event, no matter how interesting and bright it might be, will change the top-ranking of the Spanish adventures that I had in September. But it's not about September ...
