I got a chance to go on an EVS in Liepaja, Latvia. I was supposed to be a volunteer/host of the Travel School, a project I found super cool from the start. And so, in lack of a better summer plan, along with 3 other girls I had just met, I flew north. Didn't really know much about Liepaja at that point, except that it has a beach. A nice beach with a wannabe Hollywood sign.
„Where the hell is Latvija, what are you talking about, How…?When…?Why…?What…?”
So, that’s my mum who wasn’t very happy when I said I will be volunteering in another country for 2 months. But let’s start from the beginning. I’m Marina, from Croatia and I accidentally applied for EVS, so my experience is little different than other EVS volunteers.
