    Ich war auf Grund eines Praktikums für zwei Monate in Melbourne. Während dieser Zeit habe ich bei Helen und ihrer Familie gewohnt. Dort habe ich mich sehr wohl gefühlt und mich abends immer auf das "Zuhause auf Zeit" gefreut. Die Familie stand mir immer mit Rat zu Seite und unterstütze mich, wenn ich bei irgendetwas Hilfe brauchte.
    Helen ist eine tolle Gastgeberin. Ich kann nur Jedem, der einen Aufenthalt in Melbourne plant empfehlen, bei Helen zu wohnen.
    In die Stadt kommt man in gut 30 Minuten mit der Bahn, die man in nur 5 Minuten zu Fuß erreicht. Der Strand ist auch in 20 Minuten zu Fuß oder in 10 Minuten mit der Bahn erreichbar. Die Umgebung ist sehr ruhig, jedoch befinden sich in 15 Minuten Entfernung alle Einkaufsläden, die man braucht.

    I was in Melbourne for work experience. Helen and her family have been wonderful hosts. They made me feel comfortable on the first day and it was great to come home after a day of work. The place is very close to public transport and close to the beach. Thank you very much for the great experience!

    Helen's homestay is extremely wonderful. Everyone was so kind in the family, and helped us so much such as tourism information and daily necessity during our half-month stay. We felt at home living in Helen's house, we were invited to enjoy the tradditional bavarian dishes with german beer, Helen and John are good cook. We do love the german dishes. Lovely dog Ziggy, We miss you so much, you make us feel so warm. You always welcomed us back home behind the side door every day, and we had a lot of fun together. Thank all of you so much once more. If you live in Helen's homestay, you will be the lucky one. It is not a advertisement, it is a true feeling from our stay.
    BTW, it is very convenient to go to city centre from Helen's home.

    Eine sehr nette, gastfreundliche und aufgeschlossene Familie, die einen Mittelweg zwischen der australischen und deutschen Lebensweise gefunden hat. Einfach toll!!!!!
