A part of running a backpacker’s hostel is saying goodbye to guests who have become familiar faces and good friends during their stay with us in Toronto.
Susan is a physicist from Germany (she holds a Master’s Degree) and came here on a working/holiday. She flew home on Monday to “return to the real world” as it were.
She managed a Second Cup Coffee Franchise for the summer. It was a prime location right on the waterfront in the tourist rich HARBORFRONT area of Toronto.
But even after she moved out of the hostel she would come by on a BBQ or wine and Cheese Night or Pub Crawl Evening to renew old/new aquaintances. A lot of our long-term guest do that (most actually!).
For her last few days here in Toronto, Susan moved back into the hostel for a few nights – a lot of our guests do that before their return home.
She is now back in the exacting, skilled and important work of a physicist back at home.
We bet she misses the relaxed atmosphere of the waterfront coffee shop. We’ll miss Susan.
