Lilia’s adventure in Brežice, Slovenia

Hearing a lot about the exquisite beauty of Slovenia made me eager to write it down on my “ Must-Visit “ destinations, until the time came. I remember one of the executive board members of my association in Tunisia “ CCAB “ texting me about this new opportunity and giving me the task to form a team as soon as possible. It was quite exciting for me because I was about to mark one of my goals with the “check “ mark , and not only that but also, to learn about sustainable mobility as a completely new theme.

Then time came for the exchange and it all started with wide open eyes ready to connect with the wonderful spirits in front of me. I remember the first laugh and the first conversation that gave birth to a range of brand new friendships that were created within Brezice. Thus, forming our very special “ OHANA” that kept making me feel beyond grateful to meet each and every participant out there. “ OHANA means family.Family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten” OHANA!. The same sentence and the same flame of gratifying emotions were filling the air every single day with a cozy and friendly atmosphere.

Chilling around Brezice, was literally one of the best parts of the day. That small town was a ray of sunshine that filled me with delight and freshness everytime I stared at any part of it. I remember a list of tasks that we were supposed to complete by evening, and we had at some point to talk with the locals, then BOOM! I was amazed by the way how the Slovenians living there were very welcoming and cheerful enough to make you sense the feeling of belonging. At that moment I realized that I really love that country and that I want to pay it another visit.

Goodbyes were my emotional part, yet I am beyond relieved that I am going to meet all of those amazing souls once again in Turkey just to recreate awesome moments together, because: Once OHANA, forever OHANA. I can not wait to meet them all again and refresh the pleasant connection we had just to feel the power of cultural exchange.
