In August 2012 I had an amazing experience participating in a work camp that took place in Croatia, in a small place called Kastela. A group of 10 young people were gathered in one place to help the local organization with the projects and events they came up with, and of course to have a great time while doing it.

Besides that, the main purpose of the work camp was to help organize a rock festival, that was supposed to happen for the second time, and its aim was to gather all the young people from the 7 villages at once place, even just for a night. Because at the end of the day, no matter how different we are, music is the thing we all have in common!

I have to say it was one of the best experiences I have ever had. Working with the locals was the best part of it, and of course it was a process of learning for all the volunteers. We cooked for ourselves there, and in our free time we hung out at the beach and enjoyed the lovely weather.

The two planned days of the festival went great, and everything turned out even better that expected.

I came back from the trip with a lot of memories that I’m sure I will carry with me for a long time.
