Posted on December 29th, 2016 in Articles, EventsRespond to this post »

The Balkans are one of the most interesting parts of the European mainland. I consider them a puzzle of different nations and minorities, a place of many differences and similarities at the same time, a region with rich cultural and food offer, filled with amazing nature and authentic architecture. It is a region worth being discovered and visited. This September, there was one more reason to visit the Balkans – the International Youth Conference, organized by Youth Alliance, happening traditionally in Krushevo (#iyckr2016), a small and lovely town in Macedonia.

Macedonia, along with neighboring Serbia, Kosovo, Montenegro, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Slovenia, was known as Yugoslavia just 2,5 decades ago. Exactly this was one of the... Read More »

What Being an EVS Volunteer Means to Me

Posted on December 21st, 2016 in Articles, My StoryRespond to this post »

It’s already been six months since I moved from a city of 3 million to a town of 3 thousand people in the middle of nowhere.

This is all because of my European Voluntary Service (EVS) placement in an organization with a name nobody-can-pronounce – RAIZVANGUARDA – Associação Cultural.

I live in an old house together with another volunteer Claire from London, a tiny snail in the bathroom and a gray mouse under my bed. We are working in an Old Primary School in Bordeiro on top of a hill. By “we” I mean Claire and... Read More »
