Discovering Prilep (15)
I have always dreamt of being in abroad since my childhood. I love travelling. Seeing new places, meeting new people and learning about new cultures always make me excited. I think the idea of being able to experience brand-new life feels fantastic to me, even if it will take at least a couple of days.
I do not know for sure if Macedonia has chosen me or I have chosen it, but I think that we both needed this challenge, this exchange of experience and “a way out” of the comfort zone. Although my experience started in the middle of the summer, it was living inside of me since the winter. Prilep is my host town and, in a way, it tries to gain my sympathy, I have to admit it's succeeding although the beginning was not promising.
After two months of staying in Macedonia we are ready to write our first impressions of this interesting land. To introduce ourselves: we are Davide, Mattia and Laura, three Italian volunteers coming in Macedonia for doing the EVS project in Prilep. We will be volunteering at INFOSEGA for one year and working on a project about developing entrepreneurship skills of young people in high schools.
