The host is the kind of project I have never seen before and it blew me away when I got my first tour of the place. The environment is outstanding and all people connected to it are just amazing. The atmosphere is very welcoming and friendly. I felt safe and cared for. I've learned a lot during my stay as the work is very interesting and fun aswell. I got to try a lot of new things, which was awesome. I enjoyed every minute of my stay. Thank you for everything!

The host was an experience I'll never forget. Sam, Mark and Jim all made me feel welcome on my first worldpackers experience and were great hosts making sure we had everything we needed and showing me amazing sights in the french country. Working on this huge project with them has taught me skills I never knew before and i won't be forgetting them or the people. I look forward to seeing what becomes of the host in years to come and hope to get back there when I can!
