If anyone who has been volunteering in a European refugee camp recently/or is involved with refugee solidarity projects, and would like to meet up, as someone who recently left Calais, that would be really nice...
I've spent the last 6 months volunteering in Calais with refugees, and am now in Barcelona. I'm doing a yoga teaching course, but also looking for a place to heal some of my Calais wounds, to be tranquil and stuck into every day work. I would also like to get involved with refugee solidarity projects, if anyone knows of any around here...
I'd love to really get involved with some hard work in the countryside, to get to know lovely people and to have a base.
Last year I finished my degree in Edinburgh - and now I'm ready to LIVE, to be ACTIVE, to learn things with my hands, to climb mountains alone or in company, to try and change our crazy world.
I love to run around mountains, to dance, I love to cycle my bike and sing (I recently spent a month cycling around the Highlands of Scotland, camping and cycling on my own). I love to cook - I cook vegan food and don't eat meat, but if I'm living with people who eat dairy and eggs then I tend to adapt to this and eat these foods too (I love to eat with people, and struggle to be very fussy in these situations! I'm also happy to eat, for example, eggs when I can see the happy chickens who produced them). But I'm a cook at heart, its something I've done since I was very young - I bake breads, cakes, I cook curries and stews - I like to invent and use whatever is available, to take time and cook delicious meals. I've worked in an artesanal bakery, as well as in various cafes, so I'm also used to working with food in a professional environment. But what I love the most is cooking for myself and others at home...
I spent a year living in Granada, and I fell in love with the city and the surrounding countryside - I met so many wonderful people here, and lived a life that felt like something out of a fairytale! Granada is a city I feel at home in, because its easy to escape the madness of the centre of the city - but I still prefer to be in the countryside.
.... Tengo ganas de vivir! Y de hacer cambios, involuvrarme en luchas buenas.
