Long time no see!
I’ve been busy with packing and preparing things for my trip to Milan, Italy.
Have you ever heard about AIESEC? Well, those amazing people planned an amazing project for 6 weeks, which gave me the opportunity to volunteer and participate in this lifetime experience. I can’t lie, I will never regret this decision! It completely changed my vision and helped me to improve myself, for better and for good!
My journey started on 8th of February, 5 A.M when I jumped into the car and left for the airport. I had a connection flight (via Ukraine), so it took me around 7 hours to get from Tbilisi to Milan.
I am so lucky with this project, because as planned I was ment to live in a host family, so those people contacted me days before and arranged meeting point for my arrival. They picked me up from the airport and took me straight to home! I was completely exhausted, I was a little bit sick (coughing nonstop), but as soon as I arrived home, ate food and video-called my parents, I left to see the legend of Milan, DUOMO!
I remember the moment when I was coming up from the underground station and this view just took my breathe away, froze my bones from the head to the toes and I was about to cry. You see all these pictures online and can’t even imagine what it means to see something like this in real life. SPEECHLESS!
Okay, enough rambles about Duomo.
Well, as I’ve said, my project considered me to volunteer at high school as a Trainer, discussing about environmental issues. As you can see on the photos, my students had prepared some special things. One of the students baked me a cake, others baked some cookies, some of them brought drinks and decorated room for me to feel welcome ❤
First day was pretty exhausting, but full of good, pleasant emotions!
Of course, second day, after school, I went out to see the city and met up with my old friend from Georgia, who is studying at university of Catholica in Milan. She brought me to the amazing places, museums and cafes.
We have visited museum of modern art. It was breathless!
After a long walks around the city, we got so tired, decided to chill out at some random cafe, which appears to be Gucci Cafe 😀
Of course, as a guest, I was paid by my friend!
The following day, I had a day off from my school, so my host sister and I went out for a walk. Somehow, we appeared to Brera Museum. Those pictures from renaissance period is just stunning. I think words aren’t good enough just to describe the colors and crazy minds painters had used. Of course, the most famous painting “The Last Supper” is kept here.
And here are some random photos from that day.
Well, that’s it for today! I promise the best posts are yet to come.
Stay tuned 🙂
