  • Tiffany, outbound to Brazil

    Happy Holidays! So once again a lot has changed from my last journal. As an exchange student change is the only thing that is normal.   Read More...

  • David, outbound to Belgium

    Bonjour à tout le monde ! I can't believe 5 months have gone by already. I would like to start by saying that I'm having the best time of my life.   Read More...

  • Nick, outbound to Czech Republic

    Wow. As I am typing this I just realized I haven't updated in 4-5 months. And that thought leads me to wow, I've been here for 5-6 months.   Read More...

  • Cat, outbound to Czech Republic

    So, I have been here for 153 days so far and just moved to my second host family. So far I have traveled to Germany and Austria. They were great and very beautiful.   Read More...

  • Journals: Sabrina - Ecuador

    Can't believe how quickly time has passed. It really is such a strange concept; time, how quickly yet slowly it seems to pass, how it controls so strongly yet so silently. It truly is such a forgotten element, it is so easy to get so wrapped up into your own life and forget the force that is controlling it.   Read More...

  • Kelly, outbound to Thailand

    Five and a half months in Thailand. What can I say? Thailand is amazing.   Read More...

  • Krystle, outbound to Brazil

    Hello Again! Greetings from Santos. Time to write my feelings out and give an update on my life.   Read More...

  • Vanessa, outbound to Japan

    In 3 days I will have been in Japan for 5 months. The month before I arrived, I suddenly started having doubts about my exchange. A year is too long, what will I do?, the time might be better spent getting ahead in college.   Read More...

  • Kylie, outbound to Finland

    I realized that in my journals I have not yet written the thing I think about every single day, so I would like to start off by saying: Thank You!! Rotary.  Seriously, I cannot imagine how different my life, or the lives of students all over the world would have been without Rotary Youth Exchange.   Read More...

  • Olivia, outbound to Netherlands

    Vijf maanden. Het is echt gek. Five months.   Read More...

  • Natalia, outbound to Denmark

    Life is great right now. Everything is comfortable, but at the same time a little strange and uncomfortable from time to time. Getting to know people here has been so rewarding and meeting other students that go to my school that were exchange students to the states is one of the best things ever.   Read More...

  • Eli, outbound to Korea

    We were aware of the location of the subway and bus station the entire time though (don’t worry Mom and Dad!) The second day turned out much better. We got together with our other friends and all dressed up. Together, we made up a band that consisted of a cat, dead doll, vampire, Korean ghost character, and a Kpop idol.   Read More...

  • Carli, outbound to Italy

    October, November, December and now January. The past 3 months and a few days have gone by in a flash, and I can't believe that I have already been here for 4 months. Four months in my favorite country, with the most amazing people, the most delicious food, and the most breathtaking views.   Read More...

  • John, outbound to Ecuador

    Hey everyone! I'm back with another journal all about my ventures here in Ecuador!! So in my last journal I mentioned that I'd be taking a trip to the Amazon Rainforest with Rotary.   Read More...

  • Meghan, outbound to Peru

    5 Months. I’ve been in this amazing country for 5 months and each time I think it, hear it, or say it, it gets harder to believe. Life here is different, slower at times and incredibly fast at others, but after 5 months it doesn’t seem like a foreign country anymore.   Read More...
