This group includes Miranda, James, Andrew, Martin, Igor, Benita , Renato and Penny, so far.

In 2005, we plan to advertise our first Jarvojagxo by mid-year, to organize the itinerary in Brazil and to answer and enrol those who express interest.
In 2006, we will  meet the group at summerschool, keep then in touch and developing their language skills and conduct the vojagxo al Brazil and Bona Espero. We will also plan and advertise the 2007 trip and, if we have enough members by then, begin to plan Oztrek One.


Jarvojagxo (An Annual Overseas Esperanto Adventure for New Esperantists). Those responding to our  “Cultural Escape” advertisement  will be welcomed into a preparation group where they would get to know each other and start  learning the language through the internet and/or the correspondence course and/or real live meetings depending where they are. Most will probably meet in person at Summer School as part of the package deal. Internet communication will be established between participants and members of the Brazillian (probably) Esperanto association. Participants  pay YHA rates for accommodation and this sum would be offered to Esperantists offering home-stay hospitality to offset costs.   

 Oztrek (An Australian Odyssey for Overseas Youth Groups)

Participants fly to Melbourne at the start of the European summer holidays, or the start of our winter holidays . They are welcomed by the Melbourne club and have a bit of city fun before heading off by cars or bus to Bega. They stay in economy accommodation in Bega for a few days, surfing, snowboarding, tobogganing, go-carting, boating in the yacht and/or catamarans, laser-gaming, exploring and then continue by cars or bus to Sydney. The group have more city adventures there before flying out of Sydney or continuing north to Newcastle, the Gold Coast and the Reef,  if they wish and funds permit.
Oztrek could be offered to Esperanto Youth groups through TEJO and possibly to other youth groups, such as church groups. AEA members will enjoy hosting a part of the adventure and the association can legitimately make some profit from this service.
