Before starting rambling on how fabulous EVS is and getting so excited I can’t write a linear post, I’d like to provide you some basic information: EVS means European Voluntary Service and it’s a EU programme open to all young people aged 18 to 30, which allows to take part to unpaid and full-time voluntary activities in a foreign country within or outside the EU.
Off the record: before going for my first time to Slovenia, I barely knew (geographically speaking) where I was going. Just after a very busy university year (so busy I didn’t have the time to think about holidays, let alone to apply for a summer job abroad!) at the very end of July I found myself wondering about what to do; that’s when I sent some emails to several reggae festivals all around Europe (it was supposed to be a holiday, after all!) and got a reply from the SamoReggaeStan Festival.
