Planting, planting, planting

Isola delle Femmine volunteers strike again.

What could be better from planting a small and fragile plant and watching it grow into a big and beautiful masterpiece? Sounds serene. Now add 40C heat and rocky soil and you will start to see our everyday - with all the joys and pains.

Something like this
While our first local project was amazing, this one turned out to be un-explainable. Colleagues became family. And all in the span of 10 days. We laughed together, we cryed together, we ate together and we slept together. It can go either very well or extremely bad and we became insepparable. A dream-team and a family.

Dream team
But all the while having fun, we probably worked harder than ever before. The ground became rockier and the distances farther, our skin became tanner and muscles bigger.

There is only one thing left to add, and that is a reminder for everyone to take part and participate in different youth-exchanges. You never know how amazing something will be, after you have lived it.
