Perkovic Family is just amazing! I spend such a nice time discovering Dubrovnik with them. I was doing some cleaning tasks during the morning and I usually had the noons and one day of the week free. I also helped them with the sustainable garden, where they grow their own food, and this is the most important part because Milka cooks the best food ever, very green, healthy, and love-made. I miss them all, Milka's mom-caring love, Ive's nature walks, Matilda's conversations, Nikola's music, Josip's GOT spots, Dobri's humor and Djodjo. It was an amazing experience that I hope to repeat soon.

It really was a very good experience to work in this Hostel. Ive is very attentive and worried that you feel comfortable at all times. I was doing some painting and cleaning tasks with him and it was all very calm and productive at the same time. The Hostel is run by a family and the parents are adorable, I really miss Milka, the mother, who cooked the best food I have eaten in my whole trip. She really makes you feel at home as if she were your own mother taking care of you and cooking delicious dishes day by day. Milka, Dobri, Ive, Josip, Niko and Djodjo !! All the best for you!!!

At the moment I was starting to miss my family during all this traveling, I found them - people, who gave me the feeling of home. Thank you all and for each separetely. My special Thanks to Milka, who were taking care of me like family member and that I felt safe by asking for advice or learning from her so many things. Everyone were so generous, so thoughtful, caring and understanding, showing me the places, sharing conversations. Of course sometimes I wished to be not the only volunteer, that's why I believe that at summer it is different experience, but kindness of them is something above.

I don't really know where to start.
So i will tell one of the best things that happend in this experience. It was my birthday and the family prepared me a great dinner, and 2 cakes for me, it maybe sound simple, or not very important, but when you are far from your family and your friends, and your home and everything, it is REALLY good for the heart!
The tasks were simples, few hours of work only.
Milka, the mother of the family, she is Chef, so the breakfast and lunch are the best thing ever!
I totally recomend this experience, i would do it again and again.
