No need for blue flowers

They told us of a blue flower hidden in the gloomy forest behind us. Each year that small fern blossom would show it’s ocean-eye colours to those daring the step into the unknown deep woods, alluring young boys and girls with the promise of any free wish granted once it is found. And that day was today, the living legend of the burning fires of Joninės, the ancient celebration of the ...

Volunteering – a lesson worth learning!

I come from one very small, but very beautiful country. Wonderful and dyed with all the colors is my small Bulgaria. In the East you can spot the endless golden sands of the Black Sea, in the South – the high green hills of the Rhodope Mountains; in the North - the Pacific deep waters of the Danube and in the West are the mountain ranges surrounded by the beautiful scenic valleys. Before ...

Analysis of a Borderline Girl in Serbia

  It was about time I put down my reflections about what we did last summer. It`s not so easy, though writing is something I used to do daily. Before coming to Serbia , I decided to keep a diary on everything I would be doing there. Mission impossible, since our lives didn`t stop for us, didn`t wait for us to keep a record of the way we were changing, of the way we were developing, or influencing ...

A Hare Does Not Care About His Hair

Imagine yourself standing on a hill one rain soaked sunny morning, getting a lungful of a mix of alcohols, excrement, and blood! The pleasures of the night previous shoot through your head with a mild headache, as you open your eyes taking in the sunlight. When you cast a look down upon the Charybdis of souls whirling from five different rivers, anxious to be purified, you realize at that moment ...

Think smart. Think big. Think. And be a volunteer

I had a long way to go until the happy end as a volunteer. At first I was unofficial volunteer in the corporation I worked in. One very unfriendly place with some interesting things to do, like this initiative where around 12 people tried to change the environment. And we did it. The volunteers are in general the people who make a change in the society. Because they give all of their energy ...

A New Phase: Marshmallow-ic

Everything has started like a story of Umut Sar?kaya (one of Turkish comic writers). The idea of going abroad after my graduation was kind of an obsession on my mind. And I’d rather not to come back again, if it was possible! My application process to EVS started with this determination. I was like a cyborg; waking up, eating, writing a thesis, giving final exams, searching, ...

Storm in the City of the Sun

The chemistry of Lorca (known as the City of the Sun), with its warm light, dusty orange flavour, and its mysterious life under construction after the earthquake that hit it roughly in May 2011, changed myself. No, I haven't start smoking, nor coloured my hair (OK, I admit, I had a brunette wig though). After nine months, I still had trouble with remembering that stores ...

A Letter to a Future Volunteer

My dear Volunteer, If you are just wondering if the EVS is for you, don't spend too much time thinking over this matter. Actually, get to work, fill all the necessary application forms and get ready for what is going to happen. Don't think. We all know that thinking can bring nothing positive but insomnia and excessive consumption of sweets. That is why I did not hesitate for ...
