I’m José and I will be your blogger for the next 11 months, along with my French friend Cyril.


We came here in the 6th of September and we had this awesome view from the window of our apartment! The flight was long (I went from Porto to Frankfurt and then to Gothenburg) but at least I stayed on the window side during both flights ahaha!


We went to Gothenburg (Göteborg) during the weekend and we were mesmerized by the beauty of the city and the cleanness and the architecture as well!


We got to try and experience the Fika! It’s a tradition here in Sweden, where you socialize while eating something sweet, in our case a Kanelbullar, which is awesome and it tastes like cinnamon!


Also the days here have been very sunny and warm, so it’s improving our expectations a lot!


Anyways, we have to go to work now! See you next week!


Hej då!


Hi there! :)

Since the last time I wrote alot of thing have happened in our EVS 🙂

We had some activities like quizzes, t-shirt painting, a barbecue, and even some misterious QR-codes spread around Fjället. Those who were curious learned that they were about bullying, and how we need to pay attention in order to prevent bullying from happening.


We also had our mid-training for the EVS, which means that me and Emeline went to Stockholm to meet other volunteers and some trainers for 3 days. We shared our experiences, we made some nice exercises and we had a really good time together!

I also had some friends and family that came from Portugal to visit me, and with them I had the opportunity to go to Oslo and Tallinn, to really nice cities that are not so far away from Gothenburg.


And now that we have Vippen open, we have alot of nights with games like Just Dance, Singstar and Trivia! It has been very funny and Fjället has been full of youths, which has been great!


Finally, Spring started to come. We had the Easter, with the houses with coloured feathers, something I had never seen!


And the sun came, which means everyone is outsider enjoying every little bit of sunshine! 🙂


This is us in Brunssparken, enjoying the sun like true swedes!

Hello from Fjället!

Today I have a lot of things to tell you about these times in Fjället! We had alot of activities happening.

On December we organized a Julpyssel day where people from Rannebergen could come and make some christmas postcards, boxes, candles and balls for the Christmas tree. It was a very nice day!

(We have new hats!)





This week we had a chocolate salami workshop, where I teached how to cook it, and this was the final result:

And on week days we started having some fika regularly for our visitors:

Finally, I made the first video about our work in Fjället, take a look!

So this is what has been happening in Fjället for these days. Now Emeline went to France for some weeks, and I will be having some portuguese friends with me, who will also come to visit Fjället, so you will have the chance to meet new people soon.

We also had alot of snow in the last week, but now everything melted, and we are back to warmer temperatures. The days are already bigger so for me, these have been some nice times around here, being able to play in the snow and also enjoy the longer days.

Stay tunned for more updates, there will be more videos coming, and new activities soon!
