Julie D, host and traveller from Ontario, finds inspiration from seeing her world differently through the eyes of her hosts.
When I joined Servas in 1981, I had no idea how it would change my life. I have met amazing hosts and travellers from all over. They have generously shared not only their homes but their hearts. I see my world differently through their eyes. It inspires me and gives me energy to do what I can for a more peaceful world. I am surprised at how many connections we can find even though our history, language and experiences are very different. These connections are magical and I have had some friendships for decades!
