I had the pleasure of spending six incredible weeks with Daniela and her family in Toronto. I was welcomed as part of the family from day one and felt at home in their beautiful house immediately. Daniela and her family are open-hearted, caring and outstandingly kind and did do everything for me to feel like at home. Also, they have the cutest and kindest dog ever! Staying with this incredible family was an experience I will never forget.
@Daniela: I hope I will get the chance to come back! Thank you so much and miss you already <3
I had an amazing stay at Daniela's house. She and her family are all so friendly and hospitable. They made sure nothing was missing during my stay and went above and beyond to make me feel at home. I will miss them so much, amazing people and amazing family <3
J'ai été accueillie au sein de la famille de Daniela comme si j'en faisais partie. Mes parties correspondaient totalement aux photos envoyées. Si vous rencontrez un problème durant votre séjour Daniela sera la pour discuter, arranger la situation.
Merci à la famille de m'avoir intégrer dans la vie canadienne. :)
