Learning can happen in a variety of forms and experiential learning tends to be the top most memorable experience when it comes to learning. One great way to learn is to go somewhere, be it historical, scientific, or artisan. (We really recommend somewhere historical). We can go on a journey, or have an adventure in our own backyards. There are so many places to explore!
