Confessions of the Office Worker

I might get in trouble for this post. Maybe I will even get suspended from the EVS-program. Because what I am about to tell here, is quite shocking. At work…. I don’t work all the time! It’s not easy to say it out loud, but I’ve decided to get out there and speak honestly for all of us, who like to google all sorts of fun facts about kittens, politics and Harry Potter.

Acclimatization at the Spanish Altitudes

Almost three month in Valencia. It’s funny how time flies and yet it feels like the day I arrived to the Joaquim Sorolla Train Station was hundred years ago. Though some things are still new and exciting for us, every day life hardly presents any bigger surprises. Also the daily amount of the new people we meet is becoming smaller and smaller.
