Casa do Professor was such a nice place with amazing people! George will make you feel at home and the French courses were pretty funny! Really close to Lençois Maranhenses so you can go whenever you want :)

I feel like I made a little family here. Rodolfo made me feel at home and included straight away, he was always communicative and caring in every step of the experience. The food was great and so lovely to share together (I was definitely never hungry) and the tours included were incredible. The national park is beyond words, a true paradise so that alone is worth every moment of the work. An amazing experience!
Thanks for everythingggg... I will miss you guys!

Your little family missies you, Kat!!!



Eu não poderia ter escolhido melhor do que a Casa do professor hostel, como minha primeira experiência no voluntariado.
Foram dias de deliciosa convivência com pessoas que fazem a diferença.
O anfitrião é uma pessoa incrível que me deixou muito a vontade para desenvolver minhas tarefas e ao mesmo tempo conseguir desfrutar todas as belezas da região bem como conhecer a cultura e costumes da comunidade ocal. Fizemos uma bela parceria
Gratidão a todos, em especial ao anfitrião, que me acolheu tao bem, a equipe de trabalho e hóspedes. Belas amizades, momentos e histórias que jamais esquecerei.

Como descrever essa experiência? Três palavras: Respeito, Parceria e Diversão.
George e Laís são ótimos anfitriões, preocupados e engajados com o propósito do turismo e hospedagem em Barreirinhas.
Me diverti muito, conheci mais sobre a cultura do nordeste e descobri novas habilidades minhas. (drinks heheheheh) Sem contar as amizades que vou levar pro resto da vida.
Só gratidão, principalmente ao George pela hospitalidade, flexibilidade, abertura e amizade.
Muita paz e amor! Viva o Maranhão!!

Agradeço a oportunidade de voluntariar no hostel Casa do Professor. Foram semanas de bons momentos com os anfitriões Rodolfo e George e com os outros voluntários. Os anfitriões foram bem flexíveis quando precisei folgar para fazer trabalhos extras. O ambiente do hostel Casa do Professor é bem acolhedor, me senti em casa. A localização é ótima, bem perto de comércio e do Rio Preguiça onde tem vários bares, restaurantes e saídas para passeios turísticos. Espero voltar um dia e manter sempre contato com todos. Gratidão!
