The value of Servas conversations

Lorna, a dedicated Servas member from Montreal, appreciates

Meeting with other Servas hosts, either while travelling or when then visit my home,…always been an enriching experience. I get to talk with people from other walks of life and with life experiences that I would probably not otherwise meet. When travelling, my hosts can sometimes point to things of interest that might not find their way into the guide books, or explain local ways of life and why certain places or customs are special to them. It’s like being able to see something new through my own eyes, but also through those of someone else. Being a Servas host give me a chance to share my “special things” with travellers.

It’s not all about travel, however. Mostly, I appreciate the long, invariably honest conversations we have usually over sharing a meal. I have met so many fascinating people through Servas and keep in touch with some of them long afterwards. I feel lucky to be part of this process.
