This Week In Educational Travel: Travel Early and Often
Happy Friday, adventurers! In case you missed anything while debating the color of this dress, we rounded-up travel and education news from ACIS, around the country, and around the globe.
— After interviewing hundreds of older Americans for his latest novel, “30 Lessons for Loving,” Karl Pillemer, a Ph.D. gerontologist at Cornell University, discovered a common regret according to the older generation: they didn’t travel enough in their younger days.
“Travel is so rewarding that it should take precedence over other things younger people spend money on.” – Karl Pillemer.
— No regrets for these ACIS travelers: our TripStream is flooded with photos from February travels to England, Italy, Greece, France, Switzerland, Germany, Spain, Mexico, and Central America. Be warned before viewing: TripStream photos are known to cause an immediate case of wanderlust.
— Travel was trending on Twitter this week thanks to #StudyAbroadBecause, an initiative started by the State Department in December, encouraging college-age students to travel and study abroad. As today’s older generation advises: travel early and often!
“When we study together and we learn together; we work together and we prosper together.” -President Obama
— Not to be outdone by the study abroad hashtag, a pair of police-evading Llamas in Arizona also captured the internet’s attention – before being captured. We can’t be sure where the Llamas were headed, but it may have been an attempted return to their native homeland: Peru.
— Fairmont Hotels & Resorts recently released an infographic that can answer all your important travel photography questions, including: the most “liked” Instagram filters, tips to get the best shot, and the most popular photography destinations worldwide. Great for photography pros and iPhone novices alike! “A World Through A Lens” Infographic by Fairmont Hotels & Resorts.
