Volonteering makes me happy, when i help someone i feel better and because of that i think it’s important to volunteer first because it’t kind when you help someone just because you can and you don’t want money for that and second because of yourself, you made yourself better.
2 years ago on summer I wanted to do something different and I wanted to go somewhere that i did’t before. My friend told me about volunteering abroad. I found on internet organisation Mladi istraživači Srbije. You can find many options there, many countries, many staff. But I knew that I want to go somewhere close, so first thing I wanted Europe and didn’t want to search all countries. I found things that I know to do and things that I love to do. From 25 pages of different types campuses I found 3. The first and the second was Germany, volonteering with kids and the third was Sicily, island in Italy. You need to do some application online and you need to send them name, date of birth, skills, how many languages do you know, how good etc. So I done that send them my application. And you need to go in their office(Novi Beograd) to pay participation 6800 RSD. After few days they call and they tell you where are you going. They told me that I going in Sicily.
The first I was scared because I wanted to go in Germany to take care of kids, I thougt it’t easier to work with kids not with horses. After they told me where I’m going I bought ticket, and after 2 days I left smile emoticon First time without parents, alone, somewhere in the jungle.
Before trip organisation gave me instructions about my location, job, people and other important informations. They told me that I will have accommodation and food. Also, they told me that I will be there with random people around the world and we will speak only english.
When I read instructions I saw that I needed sleeping bag, tent, boots or sneakers for mountain, matt, and clothes for rainy, cold and very very hot weather. And some money. I bought everything and my adventure started.
My trip was good I had transfer in Rome to Catania.
It was amazing experience, the best one in my life. I met people I used english language every day. I saw Etna, scary smile emoticon
My job was to take care of horses. We ate traditional Italian food – pasta, pizza. I slept in tent, in hotel, in old tradicional house with my friends. Great organisation and experience.

Volontiranje je nešto neverovatno. Divna stvar, zato što pre svega pomažete, bez novčane nadoknade, a druga stvar vi se osećate dobro. Podeliću sa vama moje iskustvo od pre 2 godine odlučila sam da uradim nešto drugačije i otputujem negde. Od prijatelja sam čula za organizaciju Mladi Istraživači Srbije i odma otišla na sajt. Sve to se odigravalo u nekoliko dana, ušla sam na sajt odma odabrala nekoliko kampova. Kod njih na sajtu odete na pretragu kampova i možete birati kampove širom sveta. Ja sam se odlučila za Evropu. Aplicirala sam 3 kampa, prva dva Nemačka, da radim sa decom i volontiram na farmi, a treći kamp je bio na Siciliji, da se brinem oko konja za vreme prelaza konja preko Nacionalnog parka Nebrodi.

Aplikacija koju popunjavate online košta 6800 dinara. Posle 2 dana su me nazvali, primljena sam na kamp na Siciliji. Uplašena, otišla da dobijem dodatne informacije o kampu i putu. Priča je sledeća: oni obezbeđuju smeštaj i hranu, a ja plaćam avionsku kartu. Kupila sam kartu i nakon 2 dana otišla. Morala sam da kupim vreću za spavanje, šator, cipele za planinarenje, podlogu za vreću za spavanje. Opremljena krećem u nepoznato, u avanturu. Rečeno mi je da ću tamo biti sa ljudima iz različitih krajeva sveta i da ćemo koristiti isključivo engleski jezik. Let je dobro prošao, presela sam u Rimu za Kataniju.
To je bilo neverovatno iskustvo, prvi put bez roditelja na putu. Videla sam Etnu, upoznala nove ljude, pričala i vežbala engleski, spavala u šatoru, izgubila se i na kraju snašla se.
