Why Learning Journeys?
At Learning Journeys we believe in a new kind of vacation. Our unique journeys help you explore and
develop your skills and interest, travel the world, give back to the community and ultimately re-connect
The destinations are chosen specifically to make practicing that skill more accessible, and more fun. Typical
skills offered are health and wellness, cooking, photography, art, birding and wildlife, language study,
architecture, music, dance and more. Programs range from beginner to professional certification. You will
even have the opportunity to attend off the beaten path festivals in your specific area of interest which will
take your learning immersion to new heights!
The quest for knowledge as we open our hearts and minds to new experiences can transform us. As we see the world through the eyes of others, the communities we visit and touch are also transformed. This cycle of positive change is at the heart of every Learning Journeys experience.
Learning Journeys is designed to nurture that ember of curiosity inside you into a flame of life-long discovery. Continued learning ensures continued growth, whether pursuing any number of interests that intrigue you or a passion you have honed over the years.
Truly, the world is your classroom. Exploring the rich and varied cultures of the destinations you visit multiplies the value of your educational pursuits, and the exploration of yourself. The journey itself – to a new place and new you – is what truly matters.
Through reflection, we bring learning to life. Pausing from the chaos of our daily lives allows us to sort through experiences to create meaning, from which we learn more deeply about ourselves. Understanding what truly moves us leads to rich and profound actions that shape our lives.
Community service and sustainability is at the core of the Learning Journeys mission. In addition to hands-on
interactive classes, we work in the local communities, helping to improve lives and our planet. Destinations
are chosen for their exceptional beauty, abundant wildlife, accessibility to expert practitioners, and generally
fun places to visit! The destinations are near and far-North America, Latin and South America, Europe, India,
Asia, Australia and more.
Finally, just as you remember specific meals from a trip taken many years ago, your ability to recall information
is enhanced when combined with a unique setting. “Learning Journeys” are an excellent value for money and
