Mi Voluntariado en Hostel Shady Spruce fue el Comienzo de mi viaje por los Estados Unidos, Definitivamente la mejor opción y decisión, Cuando comencé este viaje decidí Abrirle los brazos a cada momento que se me presente y sin esperar llegue a un Hogar muy Acogedor y con tanta linda energía que te hace tomar las fuerzas para seguir el viaje con la mejor disposición, Solo tuve una barrera que fue el idioma pero aun así me sentí en casa Chris respondió a cada pregunta y fue capas de ayudarme con todas mis duda y con mucha disposición y dedicación, un lugar a recomendar !! feliz.
