The arrival training is absolutely necessary, and in our case really satisfactory. Overall, it has been a period of familiarization with the country, their daily life, their traditions, their schedules…

On the one hand, we have visited the different villages where we will be working, to meet the leaders of these communities and know first-hand the activities developed in each community. Yes, we worked hard since the first minute.

On the other hand, we have started to learn Indonesian because it will be necessary to communicate with local people. Starting to use some words when we go to the supermarket or when we eat in a “warung” (restaurant) is so funny, and rewarding.

Finally, we have met our workmates from the host organization and also Karim, the Indonesian volunteer who will be doing his voluntary service in Spain. Not only my workmates but also every person I have met for the last few days had let me speechless. Their attitude towards life and achievements has impressed me, regardless the difficulties they might have gone through. Their natural ability to learn English by themselves or their genuine effort to raise awareness among society are good examples of it.

About Rocio

Empeñada en disfrutar al máximo cada experiencia de mi vida, me defino como una persona extrovertida, positiva y con un cierto punto de locura. Me encanta viajar y descubrir nuevas culturas, ya sea compartiendo una comida, probando la bebida típica del país o hablando con la gente sobre la religión y otras cuestiones filosóficas mientras vemos un atardecer. En mi camino, me dijeron “no sueñes tu vida, vive tus sueños”, y en ese camino estoy, ahora haciendo parada en Bali. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - I love making the most of every experience of my life, I define myself as outgoing, positive and with a touch of madness. I love travelling and discovering new cultures, sharing a meal, tasting the typical drink of the country or just talking about religion or philosophic stuff while looking at the sunset. On my way, someone told me “don´t dream your life, live your dreams”, and I am in that way indeed, now making a stop in Bali.
