We are Leonie, Álvaro, Marie and Francesco, the new EVS (European Voluntary Service) volunteers in the Regional Public Library in Kraków. We started our volunteering project in Kraków on the 1st of October, and we will teach our mother tongues (French, German, Italian, Spanish and English) in the library until the 30th of June.
„Que cuando me vaya, no caiga una lágrima por mi; que solo quede la amistad…” Is a sentence from a really famous spanish song that means: don’t cry when I leave, just remember my friendship”, and that’s exactly what I want. remember all the amazing people I have met here, and that made this 9 months unforgattable.
After 5 months of being away from home, you feel „morriña„, an spanish expression used to describe the feeling of missing home. And don’t get me wrong! Kraków is my city now, but I decided that it was time to go back home, eat a nice paella, go to feria and dance sevillanas with my mom.
