This is a backstage Tour for ever
This was the words of Kia Mulbjerg, when we after a few days had to describe the journey. They opened the doors in all the places we toured in, there’s no waiting in long queues, we were treated and hosted by VIP persons. We have enjoyed every moment of the trip and we hope that our blog shows it.
We have taken nearly 9,000 pictures and a lot of short videos. We have collected 36 “Vocationel days”, that means that we in these days has completed over 50 individual company visits. Besides that, we as a group had more than 35 visits to schools, museums, farms, government offices and other businesses.
We have been interviewed by five newspapers and one radio station.
We did our presentation in 7 Rotary Clubs. We had so much fun doing it, so we could do it more times. We loved all the questions and the talk after our presentation.
Thank you so much for developing this Group Study Exchange program.
It makes such a difference for all people involved in the Group Study Exchange.

It has given us so much international experience that in the future we can easily behave fully professionalt, socially and personally. We look forward to tell about our tour at the Districts Conference the 22. september this Year.

Many thanks for a truly amazing complex program in Kansas. All visits have simply been world class and been so diverse and balanced, so we’ve really got a very broad impression of the companies, cities and the country.
We are very proud of all the praise given to us by all the rotarians and the Rotary clubs in District 5690, we were visiting.
You really made a difference for our tour. You were the tourguide in long distance. For me it was really easy to be a team leader with so perfect and differentiated program. The little handbook was a scoop. We could have it with us in all places, and I really used mine. The way you were interested in the program and us was fantastics. I really look forward to give back, when you visit Denmark.
Thank you for motivating me to apply for the position as team leader. Your attitudes and your behavior as a team leader as GSE team from Kansas visiting Denmark last year. Many thanks for your efforts for us before and during the stay. Greet everyone around you, who helped make the stay so special for us.

What a tour You have given us. I am not sure, that you really understand how much You have given us. Your hospitality and all the experencies in the clubs, at the differents visit in companies, by rotarians and in your lovely cities has given us so many experiences, that we find it difficult to maintain the individual moments.
GSE Coordinators - Thank you so much for the time, you have spent in making this wonderful program for us. We enjoined every moment of the tour. I hope You can see from the blog, how much fun we have had during the time in your town. It has not only been entertaining but also very instructive and has expanded our horizons in many areas.
Alle our hostfamilies in Kansas
28 families in Kansas opened their homes for us. You gave each of us 6 new families. We lived with you for up to 5 days, and You fed us, drove around with us, washed our clothes and regaled us in all, as if we were princes and princesses. We loved every moment of it and we love you for it. It’s been a fantastic experience to be allowed to come into your home and participate in your families. We can never say thank you enough for that.
