Nine months flied by and we finished our EVS. Sarah, Mateusz and I said our goodbyes one month ago, and continued our life journeys.
Three people with different life backgrounds, different stories, different mentalities and different ages were joined to live together 9 months ago.
We shared so many amazing moments, laughed our a**es off, ate amazing food and worked together everyday. These people taught me how to improve my work habits and how to be a better flatmate. But actually, everyone from Arenas de San Pedro taught me how to be a better person and how to enjoy life more, and for that, I will be forever grateful.
Mateusz went back to Poland for a short period and then moved on to Czech Republic to teach English in Olešnice language camp.
Sarah stayed in a small village next to Arenas to work in a summer camp.
I went to a youth exchange in Italy for a few days.
Before we came here, Mateusz and I had just small ideas of what we wanted to do after high school. These 9 months were definitively the pause that we needed to figure out which way to go and what to do. Now, we both signed up for colleges and everything seems much clearer now.
So… thank you! to everyone that visited this blog to read about our small adventure, to our amazing boss Monia, and mentor Lucy – who were always so much more than just people that we worked with, to our host families – who made the beginning so much easier for us and helped us through everything that followed, and to everyone else who we met along the way (Esther, Quique, Jovana, Tony, Monica, kids from the youth group…)
Also, good luck to the new AJS EVS volunteers, we hope you will enjoy this experience!
It was a pleasure! All is well!
Goodbye for now 🙂
