There’s a Kafka quote at the bottom of the staircase at the hostel that reads: “Youth is happy because it has the ability to see beauty. Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.” For me, doing this internship was about learning to discover the beauty in Prague and the new people that I met while I was here. And it turned out falling in love with Prague was the easiest thing I’ve ever done.
The typical day at work started at 8am with feeding the animals (horses, alpacas, llamas, goats, camels), which was my favorite part of the day. It took about an hour after which I had some free time. At 11 am we started cleaning the guest houses, which took a few hours before some more free time until 5 pm when we fed the animals once more.
The project was located in the Golan Heights in a small village called Nimrod. I was honestly not sure what to expect and I was slightly nervous to be volunteering in Israel for three weeks by myself. I was picked up from the bus stop from one of the project managers. He was very cheeky and had a great sense of humor. He showed me to my cabin which was equipped with cooking facilities, a fridge, bathroom, and beds.
