This month was a combination of everything. Sometimes we cried, we laughed, we traveled, we learned.
First, I will tell the worst one then I will continue with good stories. Beginning of the March, we learned Zsuzsi will finish the project. There wasn’t any problem, it was just about her life. To accept this sad new was quite hard for me. We lost one part of our family, but everything was for her. So we decided to have a good time in our last days together. While she was going, we organized a goodbye party for her. It was with tears but anyway we will be a family always. I’ve already missed her. But I am sure we will see each other as soon as possible.
Now let’s talk about the project. We continued to play board game at primary school. Sometimes we had some misunderstanding, but generally, it was ok. We saw that the students liked and enjoyed it, that was the most important thing for us.
As every month, we met with participants on Thursdays for the English Club. This club is not good only to practice English but also to share our cultures and differences. Every week I learn new things about this region or Romania.
Except these, we had a different project for this time. We prepared the magazine about EVS, us and our projects. This Sulisokk will be full of the answer for all kind of questions about EVS world. Also, we added interesting interviews in it. You can get inspired by them, don’t forget to read it.
One of the important events for this month was the Mid Term Evaluation Meeting. We spent three days with eighty other volunteers and trainers from all over Europe. Before the MTE meeting, everybody has questions about how to fill the youth-pass. But we realized what we learned and how we can describe these as eight key competencies. Also, we got information about where can we use the youth-pass after EVS life. We talked, laughed and drank together with the people that share the same EVS fate with us.
The last and best part is traveling. We visited a lot of places this month. Some of them were new for us, some of them were the same which we visited before. Targu Mures, Sighisoara, Sibiu, and Brasov were the places we visited a few times, and this time we went to show them to our friends.
Sovata, Lake Sfanta Ana and Marefalva were such beautiful natural places which we saw the first time. Also, after the Midterm Meeting, we went to Peles Castle. So far this castle my favorite castle in Romania. It is incredible with magnificent architecture and decoration.
And the other incredible place was Salina Turda, which we went with our friends from Slovakia and Poland. It was scary deep and gorgeous with the lights, boots inside the lake,ferris wheel, mini golf, bowling. Surely it is one of the must-visit places in Romania.
