Hello to all the upcoming participants and community members taking part in the June 23 – August 11, 2008 tour! As you read this, I’m sitting here relaxing in the grass in front of my rural northern California home. With only a couple of weeks until the tour starts, I am very excited to be back in action in Japan, and taking part in all the wonderful activities planned for this next tour.
As a World Campus — Japan participant alumnus from the Summer 2007 tour, I’m very excited to return to our partner cities, especially to see friends and families that I met last year. To be able to return to the country of Japan is an exciting thought, but for me, what I look forward to the most at the start of my third tour with World Campus International, is to get to know the food, language and culture even better.
At times I wonder to myself what aspect of the journey is the most fulfilling, but all I can say to that is that if you want to know, you will have to wait and experience it all for yourself and decide. See you there!
