Let’s do some nice work!

Hello everybody! My name is Jakub, I come from Poland and I’ve just arrived to this beautiful place, beautifully called Belforte all’Isauro.

After my ERASMUS adventures in Spain and Germany, the good fate has thrown me into Italy, to teach me again something new and amaze me by the beauty of the world. We are surrounded by awesomeness everywhere, we just need to leave the house and do some travelling around to discover it. I believe that nothing can stimulate mind and soul better than a good journey.

A new experience

Hello everyone! I am Nuria, a new volunteer here in Belforte All’isauro. I’ve arrived two days ago after a long trip from Madrid. What can I say about Belforte? Well, the first impressions were very good. I already knew that it was on the countryside, full of green areas and beautiful landscapes but when I went around, I came across a really nice place and also very nice people. I love the mountains, the river, the medieval castle and the particular structure of the city. There is more, yesterday, I found a little friend here:

Let us connect cultures

connect culture

On a Saturday in February we organized an evening about our countries. In our cases we had Austria and France. The idea behind was to let people know more about where we are from due to the fact that every region of a country is different. Furthermore we focused on history, traditions, places, typical food and drinks.

Pasta – Italian Cuisine

macaroniFor a couple of weeks we joined a pasta course! We love italian kitchen and this was a great opportunity for us to get known how to do pasta on our own. I always thought it isn’t that easy but I was wrong.

We were a nice group with about 6 people, we learned how to do the dough with and without eggs and we made different kind of pasta. Just to let you know, now I am able to do tagliatelle, lasagne, coloured farfalle, ravioli and cappelletti. Not too bad I think 😉 To colour the dough we used tomato concentrate, spinach, carrots and cocoa powder. The last one is a mystery to me who does like cocoa pasta but ok 😀 Continua a leggere “Pasta – Italian Cuisine”

Escape Room

Last week I (the EVS’ tutor) organize for them a team game that could
involve them and make them cooperate each other, so I prepared an
Escape Room. The Escape Room was based on the real history of the Belforte’s
castle, the Baron who came from Prussia at the end of 19th century and
his testament. The goal is to find the “treasure” of the baron before the family come
to Belforte to get it and the game consists of many enigmas to solve.

Before the EVS team nobody had ever solve the room, but they did it
(with a little help because the game was in italian), all together.
Good job guys 😉 Continua a leggere “Escape Room”

Recycle – Reuse

For a couple of weeks we worked in an association called “La Ginestra” in Belforte. The most important thing for them is to produce something new with old materials. Therefor are a lot of ideas and inspirations needed but don’t worry, they have a lot of both 😉

The work – step by step

So, our task there was to make christmas decoration made out of plastic bottles for the village. The inhabitants collected their empty plastic bottels for us and the first days we had to cut them into three pieces because every part of the bottle had his own usage. Beside this we also used heat to melt some parts. This work wasn’t always easy.. after a while our hands started to hurt a lot and Christina, the boss of the association, was really cute, she said that christmas isn’t tomorrow, so no worries.. 🙂

It’s a good feeling to recycle…

To be honest, first I wasn’t sure how it will look like but now, when I have a look at all the stuff we made, what all is possible with things we usually throw away, my opinion is that it is something really special and I am happy that I could give a hand there and I also forgot how often my hands hurted all this time 😛

Thanks to the association for the oportunity to work there 🙂
