I’m back home

June 12, 2019/0/0/

Today is 30th April and it’s been 14 days since I left Chambok and since I and my boyfriend are on our planned trip around Cambodia and Vietnam. I’m sitting on a train on a 17-hour drive from Ho Chi Minh to Danang. The road leads around the coast, it is 1AM, the whole wagon […]

Chambok, my heart. <3

April 29, 2019/1/0/

April´s is almost over. My last 15 days of volunteering and living in Chamboka. Last days with children and with family, with people and with cows, with hot tea at 37 degrees, with my bike that is breaking apart, with monks, with dirty feet from red dust, with scooter rides, with mangos growing literally in […]

One of my day as volunteer

April 15, 2019/0/0/

I wake up by myself at 6am, because I had enough sleep. In the morning I ride a decaying bike to school on red dusty road, avoiding cows and returning waving to children on their way to school driving against me. After 20 minutes I arrived sweaty on the place and its not even sunrise […]

Times fly when you’re having fun

March 13, 2019/1/0/

March. What? Like when? I’m definitely not starting the fifth month; I’d have to remember that. Not possible. Besides, I’m starting a second chapter of my volunteering in the village of Chambok in the province of Kampong Speu. I live with my family in a colourful house on high legs number 27 and I really […]

I love to be useful!

I love to be useful. I love overcoming myself and the first step, when you hesitate whether to do it or not, because what if I would do something wrong. Amazing feeling when you do the same job as a farmer. Banal things like when he lets you cut banana tree with a machete for […]

Every day is different

February 6, 2019/0/0/

2 weeks have flown away very quickly and I am lying in a hammock and run through my mind all those moments. After the wild New Year’s Eve party in Koh Kong I am back to the village and I am glad for that. Kids, smiles, swimming in the river, sweet breakfast and peaceful nature. […]

The present moment

January 5, 2019/0/0/

I’m not trying to solve anything here. Neither work, nor future, I’m solving the present moment, what am I going to eat, what am I going to teach the kids that day, whether a tiger that murdered two cows close to my village won’t eat me or whether a goose won´t tweak me. I wake […]

Teaching and life in the village

December 28, 2018/0/0/

Village Ou Chamm, 3 hours from city, is the place, wherethe time has stopped. It is hard to spot a car or a scooter here on a dusty, red road with palm trees and jungle with hills. Car passes here every three hours, and more than people you meet a herd of cows. In the morning, […]
