For nine months, Gintare volunteered with the European Wilderness Society as part of the IVY (Interreg Volunteer Youth) programme. As her time comes to an end, she tells us in an interview about how it was for her when she fist arrived to Tamsweg, about her favourite leisure activities and about how she learned to ski like a local in only two months. What stands out in her story is that she experienced many first times here in Austria, personally and professionally, especially because of the contrast of nature and the work environment compared to her home country Lithuania.
