Karen was my first experience as a worldpacker, and it was the best, she is a very dear, friendly woman with many ideas for immersing oneself in the culture, the language, and the city.
He always had events and programs for us to do, and she always thought of us.
Highly recommended to go!

My host, Karen, made me feel like a family member from the beginning. She is an expert host and always tries to make your experience in Detroit comfortable. I helped her manage the nonprofit as well as house maintenance. The workload is fair, sometimes also easier than expected. Remember to communicate with her transparently, about everything, she will appreciate. Have a good stay in Detroit!!

My first experience as a worldpacker and it was wonderful. Karen is very accomodating, other house member also very welcoming. You get to meet other traveller from other countries and share cultures.. The tasks are bearable since not much to do in the winter. Pretty sure will be more fun activities on warmer days
