Beyond reality

Giorgio de Chirico and his metaphysical painting as a breath of fresh air in a grey set. Beyond the empirical sensorial experience there is something else, a thin layer that is not above reality, neither below, behind or inside, but lives “within” it. These two layers influence themselves, and sometimes our limits break, so that we can taste a slice of this alternative world. Giorgio de Chirico, father of Italian metaphysical painting, didn’t try to express anything really new. Since humanity became capable of being aware of itself, it had to face the supernatural, it had to deal with those elements that fly away from our sight, which can sometimes be essential for our being, if not life changing. Is […]

The golden age of Poland

Zygmunt moved Poland’s capital from Cracow to Warsaw “The Golden Age of Poland” occurred during the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, formally, the Crown of the Kingdom of Poland and the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, the largest and most populous countries in Europe at that time. In its largest territorial extent, the Commonwealth covered almost 1 million square km and sustained a multi-ethnic population of 11 million. Religious freedom was guaranteed by the Warsaw Confederation in 1537, which made the country one of the most tolerant. Another interesting fact is that between 1573–1795, kings to the Polish throne were selected in so-called “free elections”, disrespecting the rule of dynastic succession. The first free election took place after the last monarch of Jagiellonian dynasty died […]

The new generation in Poland

A mixture of folk tunes, with alternative pop and punk beats. Poland has several well-known classical composers as well as jazz musicians.  However, we can observe how the new music scene exploded. Unfortunately, this music is not internationally recognized. Therefore, I would like to encourage you to have a closer look and present one of the modern artists of the new generation- Monika Brodka. Her professional career started, as in the case of most young singers, during an audition for a music show. She won the third season of the Polish TV competition “Idol” in 2004 at the age of 17. The prize was to record a debut solo CD, which was called “Album”. The first two records of the […]

Irreplaceable

My project is sadly getting close to an end and it got me thinking about different aspects of my life here in Madeira, that I won’t be able to continue back home. First of all – nature and weekly hiking trips. Of course we do have amazing landscapes, mountains and forests in Poland too, but it’s not as easily accessible for me there as it is here. Never in my life I have been hiking as much as I do in Madeira. Secondly, the ocean. The atmosphere of living so close to it is irreplaceable. The salty scent, the sound of waves, the feeling of space you can only understand it if you’ve experienced that. It’s such a privilege to […]

How to stay motivated

Hard to believe, but even when you live in Madeira after some time your life eventually becomes “normal” You stop choosing to walk by the ocean, because that route it’s longer; you get stuck in a rut when it comes to work; you feel like you’re just doing the same thing every weekend and in your free time and you think you’ll never going to actually learn Portuguese. Is there a way out of this dead end? Well yes, there is, but you need to make an effort. I realized I need to create a “life” outside of my usual surroundings, separate from work, colleagues and the residence. The easiest way to do it is by making new friends among […]

Old ones & new ones

Upon the arrival of new volunteers, I realized that I am the “old” one now. When I got here, to Funchal, four months ago, I could count on the help and experience of volunteers that got here several months before me. I perceived them as my “mentors” when it comes to practical stuff regarding living in the residence and getting around the city. They showed me the fastest route to work, where to buy vegetables and of course what does the word “poncha” mean. And their help was even more appreciated when it comes to free-time activities. Like finding great camping spots, recommending hiking trails and levadas, bars, museums and other attractions. Of course I’ve learned and discovered a lot […]

Home away from home

The other volunteers are here to comfort me when I’m down or share moments of joy. When you have your ‘student years’ far behind and suddenly you need to move in to a dormitory, you can feel a bit panicked. Accustomed to single bedrooms in quiet neighborhoods, I was definitely concerned with my living situation during EVS. Sharing a bedroom with two other girls and not having a proper kitchen is not how I imagined my late-late twenties to be. Luckily I’ve been blessed with two lovely roommates and I guess it says a lot, that we still like to hang out and travel together, even though we already share a room and workplace. So it turned out not to […]
