And when you hear that five of them involve learning about dancing in Ireland, mining in Brazil, diving in Bermuda, ranching in Chile or singing in Italy, you may begin to see what we're up to here. This is the annual "Trips for the Thinking Person" issue, and as in years past, we've asked Ann Waigand, publisher of the Educated Traveler newsletter, to select 10 promising educational tours scheduled for this year.
