Jane and Andrew, two of our newer members, recently returned from their first journey to North   Carolina. You can read all about it.  Who are we? Friendship Force Cornwall is just one of 356 Friendship Force Clubs active in  more than 60 countries on six continents, with 15,000 active members  Under the guidance of Friendship Force International in Atlanta Georgia, we learn about other  people's culture and experiences the only real way you can and that is by sharing their roof and  putting your feet under their table. At first you may be hesitant, especially if you aren't fluent in  another language, but it can be a great and rewarding experience to join in their daily activities and  specially planned events. After making these special friendships and exchanging cultures, your  hosts will in turn want to visit our club and learn more about us - much more than can be found in a  travel guide or on the Internet.   As other clubs around the world learn more about our beautiful part of the world, they will also want  to visit us and we in turn will visit them, exchanging a world of experiences and friends that will last  a lifetime. How we do this is by club "journeys," the heart of the Friendship Force organisation.  During a club journey, club members or "Ambassadors" visit a club as a group of about 15 to 25,  sharing in group travel costs and having the comfort of travelling with friends. One of the club  members serves as the Ambassador Co-ordinator, to make sure that everyone gets there and back  without a hitch. Worldwide, about 300 journeys take place every year!  If you belong to a Friendship Force Club you can also join another club's journey, if they are going  to a place you have always wanted to visit.
