3 Vacations in 1
Combination eduVacations take-off in Europe!

In the Spring of ’98, Valerie felt excited about exploring more than Bordeaux Wines; so why not Cooking in Provence, too, and also studying intensive French for 1-week with a home-stay and private lessons in the Teacher’s Home in Bordeaux? We put our heads together and found she could schedule all 3 eduVacations back to back to create a great 3-week summer adventure, perfecting her language skills while also learning about French cooking and wines.

Meanwhile, Lauren called about the painting workshop in Southern France. After we found a week available for her, she thought something in Italy might be fun too. She liked my suggestion – Italian and Tuscan Cooking in her Teacher’s Home. Just when I thought I had her eduVacation pulled together, she called looking for a Teacher’s Home experience in Germany. After inquiring with my contacts, I discovered Inge, who became our Total Immersion host in Germany. That was it, Lauren’s 3rd week. When she returned to the States she sent us a lengthy letter expressing how happy she was with her trip: “...thank you for helping me to set up this vacation. You made it run very smoothly and I appreciated it! I will definitely look you up when the time comes to eduVacate again!”

We encourage eduVacators to do as Lauren and Valerie did, mix ‘n match a few eduVacational interests and destinations. Another combination eduVacator, Victor, took off on an ambitious 3 part adventure for 2 1/2 months. He began in Barcelona in February learning Spanish in our Teacher’s Home eduVacation; next, on to Bordeaux for a group French course and to live with a host family for one month; followed by Florence for a group Italian course, plus cooking and wines for another 4 weeks.

Over the years eduVacators have created some great combination eduVacations in other ways: combining 2 interests in one destination, such as Eva’s, study French & ski (with lessons) in Leysin, Switzerland or Nick’s Spanish and Golf in Malaga; and combining with a travel partner who has different interests than you, such as Kate’s and Dan’s southern France sojourn in Calvisson, she painted while he drove to Montpellier for morning French classes.

These are examples of special adventures we have coordinated for clients over the years with our excellent partners abroad. Now, on the new eduVacations site, you can book 3 eduVacations in one trip and plan it yourself and save a lot! Or, if you aren’t up for the work and time it takes to plan your own trip, eduVacations can still do it for you as a “Custom” eduVacation (see Custom eduVacations). No matter where you go or what you do, get ready for a great adventure!
