A mission to discover life, identity and the world through volunteering.
After years of studying and working as a civil engineering I discovered designing cheap supermarkets gets tedious, so I ran off to Croatia. As a socially conscious person I chose to join the European Voluntary Service (EVS) and joined a project in Istria. This blog is a chronicle of my attempts, failures, and (hopefully) successes, at community development amongst the towns and villages of northwestern Istria.
I will tell the stories and my thoughts about living in another country, discovering the local culture, customs and history; traveling through the region and making new friends. I will also track my progress as I work on community development – especially if I ever discover what it is or how to do it.
If you are interested in taking part in this journey with me then please hit follow, and I am always happy to get comments and feedback on what I write and do.
