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 Rosie)

It was a short trip to our host families this week. In fact we spent less than 24 hours with them. The Sugiura’s…Kenji, Sachiko and their daughter Tsugumi, her husband Kazuyuki and their daughters Miyu (3yrs) and Kanami (2mos) were a delightful treat. Miyu is learning the English language and would speak some to me. However she would also speak Japanese to me and when I wouldn’t know what to say back to her, she would just give me a big smile. Since it was such a short trip, I was glad to see Kenji & Sachiko some more at our farewell party.
