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.

Wonderful Hosts! (by Rosie)

I've had a wonderful time with my host family this week. Toyoyuki (Yuki), his wife Rieko, their daughter Ruri and dog Bouchet (who loves to chase his tail) have been a blast. They also have an older daughter, Rio that's away at University that I was able to speak with over the phone. They've cooked me everything from squid and ground radish with very small minnow looking creatures on it to a roast beef pickle wrap with spaghetti sauce and delicious scalloped potatoes. I have had a great time with the Sugiura's talking about Jazz, waterskiing and our cultures.
