Taster - Tool Kit for World Travellers

Ref: C3533641

Adventures can start in many ways, and many don't even leave the starting block or get on that first ferry or flight, no matter how strong the desire to travel is. In this course, we will explore how to go about travel from sticking a pin in a globe as you decide where to go, tracking down sources of information about obscure destinations to returning with great memories, amazing photos and new friendships forged. We will cover all the elements whether it's booking ad hoc accommodation, vaccinations and visas as well as looking at food choices and what to wear whether you're trekking through jungles, across Arctic tundra or driving across deserts. Pre-departure planning, how to get there, accommodation, health, communication, social media, group vs solo travel, safety and how to get the most out of your independent travel are just some of the topics we cover.
