A light and colorful journal about Community life and Permaculture

Tic-tac, tic-tac..7 months have passed and our EVS Program ended.

In May I arrived in Schloss Glarisegg (Steckborn, Switzerland) and I started calling it “home”. At that point I had little clue about how this experience will be. All I knew was that I was one of the two participants in a European voluntary service in Swizterland and I was suppose to live in a small-small village (50 members) and to work outdoors (my dream!), in a nice garden (the other volunteer was Alessandro from Italy – my partner in crime :). Everything that followed  was an everyday nice surprise: the adventure of being part of a Community and discovering a new world, Permaculture, a totally different way of living and thinking, a new language, festivals/events in the heart of the mountains, hot summer days spent by/on the lake, learning how to grow my own food and to love nature even more with all its richness, taking my first steps into meditation, yoga sessions, adding new delicious vegetarian recipes to my personal folder, learning to communicate more and better, meeting a beautiful bunch of fascinating and inspiring people, learning that giving up my personal space for a honest bear hug can be scary at the beginning but it’s such an effective way to get a positive, loving mood in a glance..

Looking back, 2013 was  definitely a unique, wonderful year for me that had a strong impact on myself and my idea of what to do next, what/who makes me happy.

2013, Thank you for bringing me so much novelty! Looking forward to see what 2014 will bring! Happy New Year!!!
