Actuality Abroad


Ten day micro-group trips to learn what it means to be human, in another kind of place.


The 2021 trip details are being finalized. Sign up below if would like to find out when you can register.

Learn about the history, culture, politics, economics and environment of your destination through developing relationships with local experts.

Settle into a daily rhythm that makes you feel like you are living in the neighborhood, if even for a short time. Each day of the trip will have a specific learning focus, progressively exploring important aspects of the local culture and environment. Travelers will take workshops, visit important sites alongside scholar-guides, receive tours of local social enterprises and have fun while gaining a greater understanding of a part of our world. Our resident guide will escort and translate for our group for the duration of the trip, introducing us to the experts we will learn from each day.
