This moment arrived earlier than expected, this is my/ours project’s last week, on the 15th of December I will be at home in Italy. I really enjoyed the time spent in DHR, these 6 months were really rich, I made so many new experiences, I learnt a lot during the workshops and activities. I met so many wonderful people here and I felt immediatly at home, meeting local and fellow ESC volunteers let me reflect a lot about myself, my life, past opportunities, time lost, dreams and ideas.
I liked so much living here, i will miss the forest and its sounds. Before arriving here I didn’t know much about Belgium, even now after 6 month there is still much to know. Here I discovered again the pleasure of traveling, searching for destinations and events to go whenever you are free. I traveled a lot in Belgium, but not as much as I wanted, in the end I did’t have time to go in some places, but at least there is one more reason to come back.
I will miss the sweet smell of waffles you can feel while walking around in many city centers (I admit it is sometimes too much for me, but it is still something typical). Here is so easy to go around by bike, it will be strange once at home, but now I want to use it more like I did here.
I have many good memories in DHR, relaxing and reading on my favorite tree, laying down in the forest listening with eyes closed, counting falling stars during San Lorenzo/Saint Lawrence night, the first time I partecipated in every workshops… so it is difficult to think I will not be here from next week .
Every time I think or someone remembers me about the project’s
end I feel sad, I need to stop for a moment and take a deep breath.
“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened”
I really needed this experience, it changed me and now I have some clear targets in my mind.
Dit is geen vaarwel maar een tot ziens
