Life as a European volunteer in Stuttgart, Germany
I love the long rides, they provide you with enough time to reflect. Thoughts fly trough your head as the landscapes change under the almost musical sound of the train.
I was sitting in the train last week enjoying a 7 hour hour journey to Dresden, where my on-arrival took place. I was wondering how fast two months had passed, how the new surrounding and people have thought me so many things. Actually I was almost feeling dizzy from excitement from the unknown, the realization how small we are and dependent, but in the same time the little happy moments, friends, signs make you feel a part of everything and every place in the world.
My on-arrival was pretty amazing,I met eighteen amazing people from Ukraine, Russia, Belarus, Italy, France, Greece, Turkey, Poland, Bosnia, Spain and spent 7 great days
with them. Tortured from curiosity and energy I wanted to absorb everything I can approach – mentality, humor, language, thoughts, folklore and philosophy and lucky enough everyone wanted to share.
We did a variety of workshops in different topics spreading from history and politics to art, sport and music.
After some adventure with my travel back (delays with transport can also happen in Germany) I arrived on time for a long weekend and used the moment to jump to Salzburg and meet with some friends of mine. Unfortunately in the middle of May still we had encountered no spring and was rainy and cold. Anyway Salzburg is so beautiful and has so much to offer, that such little piece of detail can not make a trip there bad. Also we were lucky enough to have my friend, who is living there as a guide and enjoy an art and cultural tour around the city. Big thanks for the time there! 🙂
Soon the summer time will come and hopefully there will be a lot to tell, so stay tuned 🙂 🙂 🙂
