1/7 – 31/7/2020 – Summer camps and Midterm meeting
So as some of you may notice, I am back in business ;-)
after my three months of corona break which I spend at home in Germany. Because
of reopened boarders I was able to return for the last 3 months of my
volunteer service in June.
Since then I had quite some things happening in my volunteer life. I helped
building the tent city in Plácek which was exhausting, but
also a lot of fun, because I met many nice people went swimming from time to
time in a beautiful lake and had nice ice cream. And the feeling of knowing that
we build the complete camp with our bare hands was really satisfying.
The next week I had a late midterm meeting which was first
cancelled and held online due to Covid 19 but then happened for four days
near Brno, which was the biggest esk midterm-meeting
that ever took place in the Czech Republic because they put all the
canceled midterms, which were three, in one, so that we were
38 volunteers from all over Europe. There were young people
from Turkey, Spain, France, Italy, Estonia, Moldova, Russia, Poland, Northern
Ireland, Greece, Armenia, Slovakia and also from my home country Germany. We had
a lot of great workshops where we talking about our
volunteering experience, what we wanted to do with our future,
where we meditated, did yoga together, sat around the fire,
hiked through the beautiful forest and had a lot of fun and
interesting conversations. At the end we had a big party after
that I only had 3 hours sleep, because I had to leave very early in the
morning, due to my adventures journey back to Horažďovice where I missed
2 trains in a row and needed nine instead of five hours with the train.
After my return I was immediately picked up for the camp Plácek,
where I assisted in the kitchen. I learned a lot of new Czech
vocabulary during that two weeks and had a lot of fun with the kitchen crew.
I also loved the evening campfire, singing around the fire, just laughing with
other adults and playing with the kids.
But after I really needed my holidays, because I was almost working nonstop
for 3 weeks straight and so really enjoyed my free week, which I used to
discover more of Czech Republic and for
Now I am back in the office catching up on what happened in the last month
and planning what to do for my own summer camp „Mise
Německo 2.0“ which will happen in almost 3 weeks and for what I am
really excited to happen.
