Czech Travel Exchange – U3A Network

PROGRAM OVERVIEW:

Reciprocal exchanges between similarly motivated senior students from foreign countries belonging to the U3A

Started in 1991, the philosophy is very simple: Do your best for your guests, they will do the same for you when the roles reverse. The Czech hosting groups provide full hospitality to the foreign party during the entire stay and the guests repay the Czech hospitality later when the Czechs visit them. Travellers are responsible for their travel and medical insurance costs. More than 40 exchanges have taken place including 4× USA, 4× Australia, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa and most of the European countries. This provides a unique way how to learn about the nations and their cultural heritage on a personal basis.
