This week I spent 4 days at Nisi, Raches, exploring the different aspects of what it means to be an EVS volunteer, in the form of a Mid-Term Evaluation seminar. The sessions focused on a variety of topics from reflecting on our individual journeys to becoming EVS volunteers, leaving our families and friends behind in order to start a new life abroad, to possibilities beyond the technical work of our projects through creating personalised side projects, and life after EVS. However it was the unspoken exercise of bringing together individual volunteers, all of whom were isolated in their own project bubble, and opening it up to those that have similar but alternative experiences, in a stunning location, that was truly unforgettable. I am very grateful to the National Agency here in Greece and most importantly to our trainers, who were committed to producing the best experience possible for us all.
