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.

Touristy Things (by Rosie)

I’m not sure how they do it, but the GSE committee snuck in 3 unscheduled touristy destinations today. The first visit was the Inuyama (Hakutei) Castle that sits high on a hill. We climbed up 5 stories (very steep steps) to the top of the castle for an absolutely amazing view.

Then we were off to the beautiful Uraku-en garden for a nice relaxing walk amongst the bamboo forests and rocky paths.

Our last touristy item was a 13km long boat ride down the Kisogawa River. We saw many rare and unusual rock formations as well as took in the scenic fall colors. Did I mention we also survived 8 exhilarating rapids? (It was a bit chilly.)
