Throwback Thursday: PolandThursday, November 27, 2014
Time goes by, and only memories stay. Pictures are always a good way of remembering the beautiful moments in life. Let's move back in time to thousand ten where I moved to Poland for a month.
I worked from monday till friday. I mostly started around 8 in the morning til 2 in the afternoon. I was part of a summer camp for poor children. They tried to teach me some polish words and I tried to learn them things too. We did some really great activity's with the children, such as swimming, forest walks, hiking, dancing or playing games inside the school building. One girl told me she didn't want me to go back home and to be honest I didn't wanna come back either.
I really can't believe it's already 4 years ago since I did my first foreign voluntary job. I'm still thankful for the chance I got by then and all the friends I met. Without a doubt Poland was one of the happiest months in my life. I grew up fast by the experience of living alone in a foreign country. If you ever get the chance to work in another country, take it with both hands. Poland wasn't my favorite country by then, but now I love every single thing about it. The language (which I can't speak after a month), the people, the culture, the food and the nature. And I as a person changed so much. I became open minded to the world. I learned that you don't need luxury.
