"I left Focsani richer in the heart", an EVS experience in Romania

usbngo 24 Oct 2017

Buna oameni…or simply hello people! As you can obviously see I managed to learn some Romanian after spending nine whole months there in the city of Focsani. During these nine months I completed my unique EVS experience, which really made me realize a lot not only for the people I worked with and the Romanian culture, but also about Sophia, the true me.

While packing my luggage I was full of various emotions regarding this new experience: happiness, anticipation, anxiety were some of them. If only I knew back then the amount of emotions that would flood my soul some months later while packing my suitcases on my way back home! I left Focsani richer in the heart, because the things I received are way more than the ones I gave. I still have in mind the cutest faces I could ever meet, the purity of their looks, the tightest hugs I’ve ever been given and all the amazing memories we created in “Elena Doamna” school together! When I left my family in Greece I had no clue that I would find a new one there! As in all families things weren’t always perfect, but at the end of the day you stay alone with your feelings, actions and all the good stuff…these are the ones you’ll always remember, the ones that caused some change in you and the only thing you feel is gratitude. Gratitude for all the things you took wishing you could have done more!
