It was quite a surprise yesterday morning when I went into the hostels common room and saw a strangely familiar face.
Allan, a young lad from Kalgoorlie, Western Australia was sitting there as if he had never left and it had been almost a full year since we last hosted him here at our Toronto hostel.
But this time he wasn’t alone coming to the hostel. He had with him a friend, a lovely lady by the name of Marie-Claude. whom he was lucky enough to meet while he was working in Quebec City. A great gal she is and a charming couple they make!
One of the perks working in hostels is to see friendly, familiar faces after long absences. Allan was a pleasure to host and his future looks pretty bright. Marie-Claude is planning a six month trial sojourn to Western Oz – to test the waters, so to speak.
The hostels staff wish them both all the very best. It was really wonderful to see Allan again and to meet Marie-Claude – an old friend, and a new one and we hope you both stay in touch with us.
