Opening the travelling season

So far I haven’t seen much of Bavaria: I have awhole year to travel around, in autumn I didn’t really have time, in winter the weather wasn’t very encouraging – there is no point in sightseeing when it’s cold and raining if I can easily do that few months later.

Hopefully, the spring is coming, it’s already warmer und sunnier. The traveling season is officially open ;). In last weeks I went with Leila to Bamberg and alone to Nuremberg.

EVS Meetings

I haven’t written about it in a while, but we, the volunteers, are still regularly meeting. In September we went together to the fortress above Würzburg, at the beginning of November volunteers from Unterfranken came for the EVS Jubilee that we celebrated in the Jubi, in December we’ve met shortly before Christmas for a nice brunch and gifts exchange, and now for a short workshop (during which we also welcomed Hadeel, new volunteer from Egypt, who is now starting her project in the Montessori school).

The event took place on 9-11 of November.

First EVS seminar

As you might or might not know, Würzburg is situated in the land Bavaria, in the region Franconia (or Lower Franconia, to be exact). What does that mean? It means that the local dialect is Franconian, not Bavarian*  and here we drink wine, unlike the rest of Bavaria, which prefers beer.

I’ve spend one week in Munich (10-16 of October), on my first EVS seminar. In a way it was my first contact with the ‘real’ Bavaria.
