It's hard to believe that it's been a year and half since I headed to Germany with the Rotary Group Study Exchange.

But now it's your turn as the Rotary Clubs of Bryan, College Station, & Aggieland are looking for some world travelers.

"We find out that people come to love America when they see our young people go over there and we come to love their countries when we have their young people come to visit us," said Rotarian John Delaney.

Delaney heads up the Group Study Exchange program for the local district 5910 and he's looking for a group of folks to take to the Caribbean.

That's right. If you're between the ages 25 and 40, not a Rotarian or the spouse, child or grandchild of a Rotarian, and are employed you could go to the U.S. Virgin Islands to learn about the people and the culture.

"The great pleasure for me is to see the personal growth of the young people that go on these trips," said Delaney.

The trip will take place between May 11th and June 8th of 2013 but applications for the trip are due by the end of September.

There's no catch to the free trip, it's just the Rotary Club's way of building bridges.

"To link people from the United States to other countries in order to create strong relationships in other parts of the world," said Delaney of the program.

And take it from me, it will leave you with memories that you'll have for the rest of you life.

For more information or to fill out an application we've got a link to the District 5910 website below.
