 Cinzia & Gosia’s first summary after short time living in Rostock

Step by step we are discovering Rostock and neighborhood.

We enjoy the walks long the river Warnow that runs along the side of the city and flows into the Baltic-sea (Ost-See for Germans, please!).

Living abroad means that you have to learn and get used to the small differences in daily life. For example, shopping takes much more time because you have no idea what actually you are buying…what a surprise during cooking! –Kinder Überraschung :)

In fact, at the beginning it is quite tiring to deal every day with a foreign language (or more than one…) but at the same time it is absolutely interesting and fascinating.
Every day we can see our progress and it makes us satisfied. For a professional improvement we will join a German course next month. We are happy with that opportunity provided by EVS programme!

Day by day we are finding our place in NGOs‘ office, but some trips are included too. Last week we travelled through Germany to Hünfeld, a small city in Hessen where Kompass was founded. We visited Fulda too and Eisenach, where Johann Sebastian Bach and Martin Luther were born. That is how we are familiarizing ourselves with German culture.

Next heading: Bremen!

Tomorrow we are starting there our 10 days introductory seminar about EVS with other volunteers from Europe.
We are looking forward to it!

Cinzia & Gosia
