Let’s talk about work, work, work, work, work.
I am currently working as part of a volunteer program in Canada. We don’t do that much work, especially viewed out of the perspective of a nursing home employee. Instead our work consists of what other people’s weekends consist of: hiking, admiring the nature, and doing our share in saving the world.
This photo was taken on one of the hikes we mapped. Basically, our job is to do the most beautiful trails carrying an itty-bitty GPS. Pretty sweet.
Additionally, we work a lot on the ski hill. We’ve built a water bar, removed boulders, and painted benches for the winter lodges. I can’t say no to a lunch spot like this. Ski lifts are actually extremely comfortable swings in the summer.
This is Herbert Lake. In the actual summer locals swim in it, but summer has more or less come to an end here. There are still many ‘warm’ days, however, the season of hot chocolate, fuzzy socks, and movie sessions is beginning to creep on us. It feels like European late September or October, which is my absolute favorite time of the year. The only distraction is the hot summer weather Switzerland has been having.
Working as a volunteer so far has not been as intense as I thought it would be. We are obviously not saving the world, but I also did not expect that since we are only staying here for four weeks. I am enjoying the mix of fun, useful, and no work at all. The only thing that sucks is having to get up early every morning. Sniff.
