Hi everyone! We are almost a month in to our time in Italy and have been keeping busy with work...along with wine. Amber and I have spent this past week really reflecting on our European travels and work. Little by little, we've been building this brand and making connections in all the places we've been. The best way to put it, is that we've been planting seeds throughout this whirlwind trip we've been on this year. And there's more to do!
Next month, we're excited to say that we'll be heading to Spain for our next destination! We've made contact with a school and language center in Seville that we're really looking forward to meeting with and exploring possible opportunities for the future. In all our talks, be it in Bulgaria, Greece, or (hopefully) in Spain, one thing we've learned is to be open and always be looking for ways to help others. It's the core of why we started Lessons From Travel. We want to help YOU have a stimulating international adventure while simultaneously earning professional development. That's the bottom line.
So while we highlight our travels on our social media or hype up a place like Aruba or Thailand, do know that we have you first and foremost in our intentions. We're definitely enjoying our time while in Europe, but we're also constantly looking and searching for things that will help us design a great program!
To illustrate this point, in our latest video on YouTube, we not only head to Florence for some sightseeing, but do so while also experiencing the train system in Italy. After our weekend there, we can honestly say we'd much rather have you join us on a train ride through Tuscany than rent out a bus or van. It was so fun, cheap, and surprisingly easy to navigate.
But in the meantime, we both wish everyone out there a smooth end to the school year. It's been a long and eventful one with many of our teacher friends sharing with us their stories ranging from snow days to even teacher strikes! Wow! So I'm sure the summer break will be a good one for you all this year. Keep in touch and don't hesitate to contact us with questions and even ideas :) Enjoy the video!
