Walking in Europe

From the Publisher

Meeting the people of other countries on their own turf and terms, celebrating cultural differences and all we have in common—this is the excitement of travel shared by the readers of Transitions Abroad and its contributors and editors.

And what more rewarding (and inexpensive) way to do this than a language vacation, the focus of this special issue. I know, because I've done it many times. Last year at this time my and I combined a short "ecovacation" in Ecuador with a language course at one of Quito's outstanding Spanish language schools (See our report in the May/June 1998 issue.) If you're a student, or if you're on a tight budget, an intensive language course abroad really makes sense.

So think about it. Decide what you want most from your vacation. Learn as much as you can about he places you're going. Then go. As Lynne Sampson writes, "Good travelers are prepared with advance information but open to possibilities."

That's Transitions Abroad's purpose—to provide you with the information you need, or tell you where to get it—to make your own travel plans. This time our resources section describes the most useful books and organizations to consult for study abroad, and the programs section fills out the lengthy list of study abroad programs in the March/April issue.

Next time, in our big annual Overseas Travel Planner, the editors select, by country, the best travel information—guidebooks, organizations, websites, and individual contacts—for every kind of traveler.
