Travel Courses For People Who Want To Human Better.

"

When was the last time you felt caught up in that spirit of possibility?"

Adulting is Hard...

Has the monotony of the routine got you disenchanted with your life? Maybe you are languishing and long for something to be excited about again. When was the last time you felt caught up in that spirit of possibility? 

Travel is a powerful catalyst towards inspiration, getting unstuck, and making sense of it all. More than at any other time, you are present in the moment, open to new things, and can take the time to reflect.

But – travel can be complicated. Tourism-as-usual offers little but shallow experiences to people who are seeking some kind of significance. How do you escape treating the world as a theme park and instead have adventures that regenerate your spirit? Travel pop culture seems to only focus on consumption – what can I see/do/eat/buy/capture* next. Even if you found time to research and DIY the planning and logistics, how do you evaluate all the options and make the right decisions?

*ever notice how photography terms are rooted in imperialism? Words matter.

WE GET IT.

You want a meaningful, immersive, responsible, community-based,  authentic, ethical, sustainable, transformative sabbatical from adulting.

You can have this journey you dream of – when we travel together.

Actuality Abroad is for learning-led travel.

We design micro study abroad trips for adults where our entire intention is to help you learn from the people along the way. On each micro study abroad trip, the destination community becomes our dynamic classroom.

Alongside a small cohort of other travelers, you explore a central learning theme guided by our local mentors. Every day offers a new educational experience that is pretty far off that beaten path. Through active excursions, hands-on workshops, expert talks, and lively discussions you deep dive into important ideas like →

• restorative justice
• indigenous design
• environment & ecology
• rewilding
• social enterprise
• climate resilience
• peacebuilding
• collaborative storytelling

This is NOT tourism-as-usual.

If sightseeing and bucket-lists are still your jam – these trips won’t meet those needs. If you are looking for insight and experiences far beyond what any guide book has to offer…we designed this for you.

Actuality Abroad exists for learning-led travelers who want to develop a deeper connection with the places they visit and the people they meet. Our traveling communities are made up of entrepreneurs, activists, educators, healers, artists, advocates, creators, scientists, and storytellers

Come along and experience meaningful travel!
