Macedonia through EVS – Umut BlogMay 7, 2018
It was a quick process for me to come to Macedonia. For the first time I was going abroad. I was so excited.Today, May 3rd. I came to Macedonia on April 1st. My 33rd day in Macedonia. I do believe I made good friendships. I see different cultures and different places. We organize fun events with my volunteer friends.For example, movie night, workshops on different topics, art attack and much more. I’m having fun and I know new people.
I and my other Turkish friend participated in a school project. We came here to do activities with a group of 10/11 kids from one of the local schools. We collected waste bottles from recycling boxes and from the streets.
Because we were going to enclose with a picket fence in the school garden. We needed bottles that were not used anymore. Every step of the project was enjoyable.
I organized a workshop on daily sports benefits.
We did some fun activities like art attack, movie night.
Me and other volunteers went to Highschool to play floorball. It was a nice team work again.We spent all our energy and it was good for us.
In the rest of our time we went to Ohrid with my other Turkish friend. Ohrid is a really nice town, there are a lot of historical buildings, churches, museums.
We went to the Museum.I love Atatürk so I am actually impressed by the museum.
I have had different experiences.I am very happy to be here and I am happy to say that I am coming.
The project will be over soon and I will be very sorry.I love my Ukrainian flatmates and i will miss them. I will miss people that I have known in Macedonia. EVS was a nice experience.I think everyone should experience it.I’d love to come back here again.
Nice to meet you Bitola.
See you Macedonia!
