THE FORGOTTEN AQUEDUCT

On the weekends, we’re always free from volunteering work by VCS, so we decided to go on a bit of adventure. Our good friend Chris, who also works at VCS, recommended the aqueduct and agreed to accompany us because he never went there either. We began our trip by getting some food and drinks from […]

Fuqia për të qenë i dobishëm

Eshtë slogani i ri i Shërbimit Civil, programi francez i vullnetarizmit. Duket si programi EVS, dhe është për shtetasit francezë mes 16 dhe 25 vjeç. Ata angazhohen për komunitetin dhe interesin e përgjithshëm të një misioni në Francë ose jashtë saj. Për shembull, vullnetarët tanë të rinj Tanguy dhe Camille janë pjesë e këtij programi. […]

Traveling ‘solo’ on the Caribbean islands

One of my best adventurous experiences was deciding to go alone on the islands where the salsa originated. I must confess that before my trip I didn’t have time to check any tips or experiences from the previous travelers around these islands. But that actually at the end was feasible because you will receive most when you will expect least. […]

Hitchhiking: a taste of adventure, freedom and friendly time

Hitchhiking for traveling? No way, that’s what I thought before to experiment it. For a lot of people, hitchhiking sounds like something negative, something which can be dangerous, especially when you are alone and even more when you are a girl. Hitchhiking is a question of feeling. When the driver stops, there is this moment […]
