A Happy Runner

G'day everybody on the Hospitality Club !! I'm Syrun, Mr Sylvain Quenel, French World Saving Runner. My personal website : http://www.syrun.com

During my running world tour, december 2002, I arrived at Melbourne, big city of south-east of Australia, and I didn't know anybody. The first night, I went to a backpackers Hotel, because I was very tired because of my run from Sydney. Then I visited the city, met the medias and the administrations. I was looking for a place to stay 1 week in the city.

I went to internet-cafe, and I received a message from my friend Veit "use the hospitality club". A long time ago, summer 2001 in Italy, I had use this great club, and I was the guest in the house of Paolo, brindisi-city, puglia-state , south of Italy. It was wonderful for me to be a guest during 1 week, to sleep and eat free, to visit the south of Italy, to prepare my ferry-trip to greece.

So this december 2002 at Melbourne, on internet, I went to www.hospitalityclub.org , and I found the contacts of 30 friends at Melbourne !! First I telephoned some of them, I succed to meet Noel, great australian man, who helped me to visit the city, during 1 afternoon.

Them I met Caroline , the kind mother of a nice family, who live at South-Melbourne. I went to their home 1 sunday, I met the dad, the 3 daughters, and finally I slept in their home, this sunday night. It was wonderful for me to know the life of an Australian family, to know the christmas holiday in Australia, to find a home far of my home. I had stayed 1 week in their home, every afternoon I went to the city for my business to do interviews, then every night I came back to south-Melbourne, to meet them again, to sleep with them...

Then some friends of Caroline-family went to their home, so I had to return to my backpacker Hotel, and then to continue my running world tour. I continue to send and receive messages emails with Caroline, Noel, Paolo, and Veit. And I wish you all success on Hospitality Club !!!

May Peace prevail on Earth,
