Voluntary camp in Lampedusa!  
It was June. A friend of mine called me on the cellphone telling me about a voluntary camp organized by Legambiente (an association whose purpose is to protect natural beaty areas) in Lampedusa; they needed people to protect the "Rabith's beach" (that is one of the best beaches in the mediterranean area), because being situated within a reserve, there are things you're allowed to do or not to do if you wanna go there; so every year, in summer, they need people that help them make respect the rules of the reserve.
The camps are from June to September, and each camp is 10 days long.
Being depressed and needing to escape a free girl, I accepted! Other 2 friends of us (including my girl!!!! <3) joined us, and we chose a camp in August, the one from the 8th to the 17th.
It was AWESOME!!!!!!!!!! I'm sooooooooooooo glad I did such a thing! working there was hard, but it worth it, definitely! I must also say my friends and I had been lucky, since the other volunteers (in each camp there are 10 volunteers + a boss and his/her assistant) were so nice! We got on well with each other since the very beginning!

If you want to reach the "Rabith's beach" you have to go down (and then up!!! T___T") to an 800m long path. That's what you see when you (finally!) arrive at the bottom:

(being there to work and not as tourists, we had to go down at about 7:00 - 7:30 am in order to clean the beach and to be sure everything was fine)
