    I honestly don't know where to start.
    From the first moment I met Wafa I already had this good, warm and happy feeling inside me.

    Wafa is a really special host, She didn't feel like a host but more like a friend and even like a second mum.
    Wafa is an extraordinairy woman, she really is one of a kind. She has been there for me since day one.We could talk for hours, we laughed so much and sometimes when I needed it, I could always have her shoulder to cry on. Wafa is an independent, strong woman with the biggest heart. She helped me to establish and develop my cooking skills because she's one of the best cooks I ever met :)

    The location is fantastic. The light rail is right across her house (literally 30 seconds walk) & the bus stops almost in front of her house ( 2 min walk). I always enjoyed doing the Bay Run which is 10 mins from Wafa's house. It's such a lovely spot to go for a run & to think about life on the pier :)Wafa's house is always clean and tidy and if not she would make sure it will be in a split second.
    I loved her balcony and her big garden where she keeps her plants, herbs and flowers it's so cute! I hugely enjoyed my stay with Wafa & my lovely flatmate Valentine. They felt like family to me.

    You're crazy if you let this treasure pass you by!

    I miss you already Wafa :)

    Big hugs & kisses

    Dear Maud & Monique.
    Thank you for the beautiful review. All I can say that Maud was the perfect Roommate. We enjoyed each other company without being intrusive, it was more like a mother daughter relationship the minute she walks through the door we hug & I ask how was your day Maud she will tell me if she had a problem & how she solved it then ask for my opinion. Maud is soo level headed & mature for her age.
    Then she asks what did I do today we laugh a lot.
    Then she goes & prepare an amazing dinner for herself, like a master chef then sits on the the balcony among the flowers to enjoy , unwind & make calls to her mum.
    I could write a lot happy memories.
    She is missed for sure.the think I will always remember her beautiful infectious laugh & her love for shopping she has such a classy look & know exactly what her style is.green is one of her favorite colors & she looks gorgeous in everything.
    Wishing Maud the best in her future endeavors. She will do superbly well because she was committed to finish her tasks even if it took a day.
    Love you Maud ❤️❤️
    We will stay in touch & follow up on her love for adventure ❤️❤️
