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.

Last Host Family (by Julie)

I had the pleasure of staying with the Ozeki's for one night before the official conclusion of our exchange. After meeting the Ozeki's at a party at a fabulous and ultra modern restaurant (La Casa), they welcomed me into their home. I couldn't believe my eyes when I got home to find a box of doughnuts waiting for me. I guess the Canadian love of doughnuts is recognized worldwide. While only there for one night the Ozeki's made me feel very comfortable and cooked a delcious breakfast. They also attended our farewell party which I found very touching. Thank you to the Ozekis.
