William Grum – SERVAS Interviewer living in Oviedo, Florida (near Orlando)

I have been in SERVAS as a host/traveler off and on since the mid-1980s, and as an interviewer since 2009. I have visited other SERVAS hosts in the UK, Scandinavia, Portugal, Netherlands, most of the Eastern European countries, Mexico, Brazil, Canada, Argentina, Bolivia, Panama, Costa Rica, Honduras, Guatemala, as well as several US states. I have hosted mostly Europeans, but also from as far away as South Africa.

While all my experiences with SERVAS have been good; perhaps the most memorable time was when I participated in a caribou hunt by dogsled with native Athapascan tribesmen in the far north of Canada (about 500 miles from the nearest road). This was certainly an experience that would have been impossible without SERVAS.

If you’re in the Central Florida area and wish to join SERVAS as a host or traveler, I would be happy to interview you and share my SERVAS stories.
