Share our Excitement & Join our Journey

Welcome to the travel blog of Rotary District 5580's Group Study Exchange (GSE) Team which will embark on an exciting five week goodwill / vocational exchange to Nagoya, Japan in November, 2009.

Here, our hybrid American-Canadian team of enthusiastic and adventurous young professionals, along with our lovely, talented and fearless team leader, will share cultural experiences and engage in unique vocational learning opportunities.

If you have come to this site, you are likely: a Rotarian, family member, friend or colleague of one of the team members, or... are just plain blog-curious. Either way, we encourage you to check our site often to learn about us, follow our progress as a team and of course, keep in touch as we explore Japan.

We thank Rotary in advance for the adventure of a life time and to all readers, we invite you to share our excitement and join our journey.

B-E-A-utiful Furniture (by Rosie)

We visited Karimoku Furniture Company earlier this week. They make all of their own furniture and display it beautifully throughout their large 5 story showroom. The highlights included the chairs that had individual theater style speakers in them (we could have sat there for hours) as well as the intriguing bedroom mattress technology where the mattress is literally 5 inches thick and there isn’t a box spring… it would make for easy moving. Unfortunately they don’t sell their product in the US or Canada but they did said we could order anything from them... the trouble is that there isn't free shipping. Ouch.
