Into the Wildfires

Hard scorchers, no rain – during the last weeks, many woods lighted up. Especially Greece and Turkey, but also parts of Macedonia, were hit by the wildfires.

What’s the best way to use a long weekend as a volunteer? Right, to travel! However, those four days surpassed all of our expectations of sunny beaches and cheap meals.
