Neighbourhood Servas

Beth Q living in northern British Columbia recognizes the value of visiting neighbourhood Servas folks!

In early June, I (Servas coordinator for northern BC) and my husband Bob drove about three hours out of town to stay with local hosts Daryl and Dina H in Telkwa in their lovely home. Ever heard of Telkwa? For the curious – google “Who invented the egg carton?”

And here I am in this exquisite small church nearby with doors unlocked, and a guest book!

In early July we were touring Alan and Nola S, Servas members from New Zealand around our beautiful University of Northern BC gardens (apparently Macleans magazine says that UNBC is the top small university in Canada!).

And a few weeks later, D and D stayed with us. Along with local hosts, we all enjoyed a lovely potluck BBQ but I never took a photograph of our group of 14.😩 However, Daryl and Dina are now on my host list for years as good friends! 🤗

So, may I recommend to Servas members – to not forget their neighbourhood hosts.

Did you appreciate Beth and Bob’s tale? If you have travelled with Servas Canada and would like to share some of your news and a couple of photographs as a Travellers’ Tale, please contact us.
