” Goodbyes are not forever
Goodbyes are not the End.
They simply mean I’ll miss you
untill we meet again.”
We reached the very last Day of our Partnership and saying Goodbye seems to be so hard, but there is still something to look forwars too. We developed these great friendships and we think they might last a lifetime, at least some of them. After this post there may not come more blog entries, but the Ending of our Friendship has not yet been written.
Farewell from everyone:
“The pain of parting is nothing to the joy of meeting again.”
Everytime I think back to the night in Rome where Larissa, Samira and I sat in the kitchen and drank coffee while talking about the most random things, I can’t help but smile. ♥
I know I haven’t joined this project since the first year, but eventhough I was the new one everyone welcomed me so warmly. I’m so glad I’ve met all of you, I will really miss all of our random talks, just laughing about bananas while watching a never ending sunset.
All these memories will keep me company when I feel lonely,
thank you guys! ♥
One of the best memories from the first camp 2015 is the Salsa Evening and of course Frank. It was very nice to meet a lot of you again in Oulu and also meet the new ones.
Thank you for all the great experiences we had all together.
When I came here I had no idea what to expect, but when the days began to pass I realized that this is a fantastic environment with special and unforgettable people.
I laughed, I got angry, but I lived 15 incredible days.
It was a great experience to be a part of this camp.
It was also a pleasureo to meet you and to get to know you.
Thank you for these amazing two weeks.
The first days were really hard for me, because most of you knew each other. But while the days passed and I was able to get to know you better, I realized that almost all of you are extremely kind and sweet people. It was really cool to meet you all. Thank you guys for these two weeks that weren’t easy all the time but definetly worth the experience.
It’s been amazing 3 years and every camp has been one of a kind.
I’ve met so many lovely people with amazing personalities.
Thank you all for these experiences I’ve had!
Most of the time I enjoyed the camp very much. But sometimes I had so many other things in mind.
Best wishes to all of you for your and our future.
It is hard to believe that the third camp is over now. It went so fast, but on the other hand I shared so many moments with everyone it would take ages to tell them to someone.
Let’s never forget that these camps are ours!
Our special time which made us grow stronger as individuals and closer as a group.
” I cannot say goodbye to those whom I have grown to love,
for the memories we have made will last a lifetime,
and will never know a goodbye. “
I could fill a 1000 pages book with the stories I have to tell thanks to this experience. You are my second family and I will keep these memories very close to my heart. Forever. I made the best of friends here and this camp changed me as a person. It has been the best three years of my life and I’m looking forward to sharing more “first time stuff” with you all.
My favorite Memory is surely the Day we spent at the Beach in Italy. I’ll never forget this Day.
Going back to my daily life now, knowing there might not be a chance to do this all over again, feels like dying. But still I am so grateful for all the Time we had, although I wish it would have been more…
Thank you all for being here! Thank you for being who you are!
See you soon!
I enjoyed those three years together. I had a lot of fun and I will always keep beautiful memories of this Camp.
This Camp has been a small escape from reality. During these three years we got to know ewoca participants by their actions, behaviours and emotions without knowing so much about their background and history.
We experienced and learned so much together. We had most stupid inside jokes, shared our love, laughters, all the late nights and music together.
For me, it was one of the most important experience so far. I learned a lot about
myself and people.
I’m very grateful and thankful for all the memories we shared here.
I think this is going to be the
hardest goodbye for me so far.
In these 3 years I changed a lot and I’ve grown up a lot in particular thanks to the discussions I had with other people of this 3 years project.
So many Moments, Memories and Laughters, that I can’t even describe what I exactly feel right now, but I know I will miss this.
It’s gonna be a meaningful chapter of my life.
I’m feeling blessed and grateful for all I received.
When I joined this project almost three years ago I was 16 years old and didn’t know what to do with my life. I’m not saying that I would know it now clearly, but at least I can say that I made the best decision in my life when I decided to join this project.
It has given me so many memories with the most beautiful people. I’ve learned many useful things and also how to interact with different people. These years have given me a lot of courage to be myself and to trust other people when I let them close to me.
All in all I am really grateful to all of you who have been part of this journey.
Thank you ♥
That’s it. The final Chapter for now has been written. But although we might head into diffrent directions after returning home, we shared all these beautiful momennts and love always wins. So eventhough we do not see each other everyday, we are still Friends.
And true Friendship never parts!
So much love… ♥ ♥ ♥
