Uma das melhores experiências que vivi foi morar dois meses em Catania, no Ostello Degli Elefanti. O lugar é bonito, a vista do terraço é perfeita, o hostel é bem localizado e as pessoas que trabalham lá forma fixa são ótimas, hospitaleiras. Tive a sorte de ter como companheiros voluntários que, assim como eu, buscavam aprender a falar italiano e observar/viver a cultura local, fiz grandes amizades. E pra finalizar não posso deixar de falar dos donos, duas pessoas excepcionais e trabalhadoras que me acolheram de maneira gentil e divertida, me senti em casa o tempo todo. Grazie mille, amici!
