I’m Albena Vasileva, 23 years old bulgarian girl and I joined ETN team as an Experience tutor 2 months ago. I’m located in Spain where it has been said, that the sun shines 300 days a year, even I already have doubts about it. You can expect everything from the temperament city like Malaga. Quick preview of my duties: I help Erasmus students from different countries to see Malaga in music, dance, art, sport and more activities but let’s leave the photos to tell you more about it:
1. Sometimes we just stop to watch the sunset.
2. We discover new beaches by riding a bike next to the sea cost.
3. We play volleyball like a tournament or just for fun at the beach.
4. And football tournaments of course.
5. We do not miss great festivals like Semana Santa, Feria De Los Pobres and La noche en Blanco.
6. Somedays we just escape from the city between the diversity of plants in the Botanical Garden “La concepcion” or hiking at Montes de Malaga.
7. We attended some salsa and dream classes.
8. We include visiting some exhibitions at Contemporary Art Center or Artsenal.
9. We try to move aside from the city center and to find time to appreciate the street art.
10. We don’t let them go without Goodbye parties. 11. And we try to not forget to do something good for the community of Malaga and for the nature of course like cleaning the beach area.
11. There is always time for some QUIZ TIME in Tribeka’s office. with my special red button.
12. And we try to not forget to do something good for the community of Malaga and for the nature of course like cleaning the beach area.
Beginnings in everything new are not always easy and mine definitely wasn’t, but poco a poco 😀 (step by step) the Erasmus students let themselfs to participate more at the organised activities, to choose to do something different every day and actually to reveal in front of me their perspectives, plans and even fears for the future.
Honestly I’m glad my extra 5-6 years can help a lot simply with giving a different view and personal example. And I believe, the best thing for 1 experience tutor, when the groups are about to live, to hear the words “you made my staying here better”, “you’re always welcome to my country” or just one simple “thank you”. Even more – to keep in touch with you after they already are not around you it’s priceless.
