Ako 6 mesiacov mení život
20.05.2024 14:17
Opustiť prácu a všetko čo poznám. Urobiť krok do neznáma. To bolo pre mňa pred pol rokom nepredstaviteľné a naháňalo mi to riadny strach. Najmä zo zlyhania, z nesprávneho rozhodnutia. Dnes som pripravená urobiť to znova.

Všetko začalo nešťastným koncom vzťahu so šťastnou dovolenkou na Sicílii. Tu som pochopila, že žiť sa dá aj inak a že za svoje šťastie zodpovedám ja sama. Po návrate ma to ťahalo späť a práca už bola dlho pomalým umieraním bez vidiny posunu…vedela som, že som pripravená. Konečne začať plniť svoje sny, nasledovať srdce. Byť užitočnou, pomáhať ľuďom, vidieť zmysel mojej práce. Vidieť pozitívny dopad. Na spoločnosť či jednotlivca.

The april is slowly ending, but my adventures hopefully are not. This month already at the very beginning brought me various outdoor activities, on the very first weekend I went to unrelatively challenging hike hosted by international hiking group. We with a group of people started the hike in Kačin and finished in Rača.

April is my favorite month of the year. Spring has arrived, and the sun is beginning to set. Perhaps it's just me, but I believe that people are happier when they observe how the flowers embellish everything. During this month, I did a lot of activities, it was full of surprises and I really enjoyed it a lot. If you want to know what happened, please continue reading :)

This month started quite busy and turned out quite challenging for me, because of getting sick and on the very top having the constant feeling of missing out. Although fighting an illness and having unfortunate feelings about what is happening, some amusing things also happened. Are you curious how this month turned out for me as an ESC volunteer? Then read ahead.

Anaïs: Our second month in Bratislava and full of activities

I can't believe that we are ending the month of March. It feels strange because I don't feel like I've been here for two months in Bratislava. I think the best part is that I feel at home.

Evelīna: My first month in Slovakia
27.02.2024 10:55

Ahoj! ❤️  

It is a time for a new adventure or as INEX would say it is time to find yourself in the ocean of adventures. I arrived here in Bratislava on the 31st of January by bus from Vienna. Upon my arrival I met Barbi, our INEX coordinator, who showed me the flat, which I will be sharing with two other volunteers, Anaïs and Leonardo. At this specific moment I did not know anything about them except that one of the volunteers is from the Spain and the other one is from the Italy and so it remained a mystery until the 1st of February, when I first got to meet them. 1st of February was also my first day when I went to see a bit of city center, together with Leo. To get to the city center was quite challenging for us since we were going in circles at the very beginning in Petržalka, but when we got there, we saw the main square, men at work statue and the Blue Church. We were in another country, and everything felt new.

Leonardo: My first steps here in Slovakia

Would you ever have the courage to leave your country and move for 11 months to a new country where you don't know anyone and where sometimes even language becomes an obstacle? 

I did. 

But before I tell you about the first month I spent here, let's start from the beginning.
