MARIA from Spain sent a message to TG office. Her group had a tour with a greeter in Tokyo.

“It was great have an insight view from a local and share with us the Japanese culture: the traditional and the current one. We enjoy every minute with Kenichi and the potato sweets. Thank you so much for this experience. Gladly grateful.” (October 11, 2018)

The Global Greeter Network

On 21 November 2018, Greeter Mark met Laurel and Miles Rubin from Haifa, Israel at Circular Quay on a cloudy but pleasant Sydney morning.

Laurel has been a greeter back home in Haifa for the past few years and this was her first time on the other side of a greet.

They took the ferry across to Taronga and commenced a 6km walk through Sydney Harbour National Park, passing around Bradleys Head, Taylors Bay and Clifton Gardens. At Georges Head, they stopped to take in what is possibly the best panoramic view of the Harbour as well as exploring the historic underground tunnels built by the defence forces.

They continued on to Balmoral where they had a pleasant lunch at The Boathouse, sitting outside on the deck with views out over the beach. After catching a bus back into the city, they said their goodbyes.

Mark found Laurel and Miles to be a warm and engaging couple who shared lots of interesting and informative insights into life back home in Israel.
