Educational Travel Finder is a directory website that features educational travel programs for lifelong learners. We gather programs from different providers and link to them here in an easy-to-search place. Think of Educational Travel Finder as an online course catalog for any subject you want to learn on your next trip.
What we feature here are not university-based study abroad programs for college students (why should they have all the fun?) but instead experiential learning programs open to anyone. We feature anything from an afternoon cooking school in Barcelona to a three-month semester at sea with stops in more than ten countries.
I’m Amy, and I created this site with lots of help from friends who share a love of travel and learning adventures. By day I’m a lawyer in Philadelphia, and I often spent late nights tooling around the internet searching for trips to learn about things like sea turtle conservation in Costa Rica, or World War II history in France and Belgium, the Northern Lights in Iceland, elephant conservation in Thailand, Italian language classes in Venice or … the wish list goes on. What I didn’t find, however, was a way to research these educational travel programs without endless, unconnected internet searches. So that’s how Educational Travel Finder was born.
We are neither travel agency nor tour provider – we’re kind of like nerdy, adventurous librarians who love to learn, love to travel, and like things in order. We hope that this site will be useful as an information clearinghouse for people who are interested in educational travel programs and need a place to start.
