Volunteer Expo Milano 2015

Expo Passport MIlan 2015

Is it possible to visit the entire world in just one place?

Everything began on the 21st August.
Well,to be honest,everything began on December 2014,when I first heard about the Volunteer Project of Expo Milan 2015 and I decided to submit my request to take part in this amazing project(which was also on my Bucket List)

Expo before opening time: the only time where you could see it empty.

I had an interview and after 2 months I received an e-mail with all the instructions.

I attended an online training course and on 20th August I went to the Volunteer Office in Milan to collect my Volunteer Kit(which included stuff like t-shirts, hoodies, a raincoat, a shoulder bag…).

On the 21st August I walked in Expo as a volunteer for the first time,togheter with many other volunteers.

We were all ready to wake up at 6.30 am in August, take the underground,train or any other middle of trasport and pass airport-like security checks every single day for 2 weeks in order to arrive at Expo by 9.30.

Our job consisted in helping visitors to enjoy their visit as much as they could:we had to give information,indications,suggestions,maps…and sometimes speak three languages at the same time(or at least pretend to know what we were saying in another language…).

These two weeks as a Volunteer have been an amazing opportunity to meet thousands of people from different countries and also to taste amazing foods from different cultures.
Visiting the Zimbawe Pavillion was a unique opportunity to taste the Zebraburger and the Crocoburger served with a chilled Baobab Drink.

Zebraburger and Chilled Baobab Drink:actualy better then I thought!

On the 4th September, our Volunteer Service came to an end and we celebrated those two amazing and unforgettable weeks watching the Tree of Life evening show, before going back home with loads of memories.
