If you’re reading Transitions Abroad for the first time, welcome to a new kind of travel publication. After 22 years, the publication remains unique: It’s both a magazine for resourceful independent travelers and a resource directory for all who go abroad for a purpose—whether it’s to pursue a personal interest, to volunteer or find paid work, or to take part in a program of study.
Whatever your particular reason for travel abroad and whatever your age or financial status, Transitions Abroad is for all travelers who want to learn more about the world and our place in it by engaging with the people of other cultures.
Vacations with a learning or work component provide the highest rewards for the fewest dollars: Study Italian for two weeks in a 16th century Renaissance palace in the heart of Florence for the cost of a one-night stay in a mid-town Manhattan hotel (page 37). Immerse yourself for a week in the language, culture, and ecology of Petén, Guatemala for $200 all inclusive (page 36). From arts workshops in Asia or France to research expeditions worldwide, the list goes on.
This time our travel focus is Europe and the emphasis is economy: low-cost family vacations (page 21), lowest train fares (pages 23, 26), and the cheapest and some say the best way to travel, walking (page 31).
Next time (May/June) we publish our annual directory of language programs around the world.
Meanwhile, if you need immediate answers to your travel questions please consult our resources or go to our website, www.transitionsabroad.com. Happy travels!
