Orientation to Travel 101

Travel is both an art and a science, and Academic Expeditions is here to help you navigate the logistics of traveling with a group on a customized itinerary. A bit of applied and strategic preparation for your trip can go a long way in making yourself ready in body, mind, and spirit. For certainly, the body will face sunrise to sunset touring in come-what-may weather; the mind will process unlimited strands of interconnected information, and the spirit will absorb memorials to both grief and celebration. This is the beauty and worthy challenge of an Academic Expedition. The information and resources below have been assembled by our trip planners, guides, and teachers with many years of experience in educational travel. Please browse the sections below to be prepared before your leave, and to get the most rewarding experience during your trip.
