Xmas abroad

Hello everyone, this year has been quite different and strange at times, especially due to the fact of having been away at Christmas, a date that is usually characteristic for being with the closest and closest family and friends and especially for the great feast. This year has been different not only because of the global pandemic but also because I decided to stay in Poland due to restrictions in my country and problems related to mobility.

Sometimes I have been sad for my family and the tradition related to meals and parties, but on the other hand it has been an enriching experience due to it has given me the opportunity to spend a different Christmas, meet other volunteers, very grateful because they gave us the opportunity to stay in their homes and eat with them, exchanging ideas and values about Christmas in different countries and cooking typical dishes from many countries, so despite missing for the classic celebration, having another perspective and changing the tradition for a year feels very good. πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜„β›„πŸŽ„πŸŒŸ

Much Love to my family and friends, and also to all the new people who have made possible a wonderful time this Xmas! β€οΈπŸ‡΅πŸ‡±

I have been only for two week in Poland but I have already met a lot of great people and tryed plenty of meals, desserts and differents things I wasn’t used to, but even it is sometimes rough it is always a good way to test your skills and limits, for example, a few days ago we tried an exotic (maybe just for me🀣) and extrange fruit called melano, perhaps not from here but I found it the first time in Sosnowiec, it looks like a little orange mellon but with smalls nails in the skin and tastes like cucumber, you can ad sugar and make it sweeter but I didn’t like it, though it is a good and necesaary experience in life anyway. I will give it another chance in a few weeks, this time maybe with salad πŸ₯—πŸ₯—
