Educational Travel Educational travel for older adults can be defined and considered in a variety of different ways. It can, for instance, be put in the same knowledge bucket as what educators call experienced- based learning or learning by doing. Both of those phrases are bascially self-defining. Experienced-based learning always comes out as the most effective way to learn anything. The question is how can you effectively pursue a meaningful educational travel experience – one in which the actual traveling and interactions you encounter ultimately result in a pleasant combination of learning first-hand from the environment you have placed yourself in along with the people you get to form a brief relationship with on your trip? That’s where this section of Old Anima comes in. Here we list what we think are the best options for taking part in a meaningful educational travel experience, from top-notch, expert-driven travel services that manage and accommodate all aspects of your travel experience for a fee, to doing it yourself in a less-expensive way that can also result in a very meaningful overall experience.
