Some amazing travel shots of children at play from countries around the world. Well worth a look.

Interesting view of the 'power' of different countries' passports, based on the ability to enter countries on a free visa.

Promotions / How to upset a geography teacher?
« on: June 11, 2014, 11:40:41 AM »
Forgive me if I am about to upset the majority of geography teachers in the land BUT...

Have you, (shhhh) had enough of Iceland?

If you fancy a change from glaciers, hot springs and black sand then where might you head for your next geography trip abroad?

You could do worse than to look at these alternative geography trips for schools.


We still have about 50 of these maps to give away if anyone is interested!
Send us a message through the website.

We have recently re-printed our 'Destination Inspiration' map and have about 200 to give away FOR FREE. (yippee, I hear you cry)

If you do, you have an amazing opportunity to experience the world in a unique way…

Educational adventures exclusively for girls' schools

In every country around the world, women hold a unique and sometimes little known role within society.  Yet it is a role often hidden away behind doors closed to men; which is where your girls, and our unique journeys and expeditions come in.

If your girls were to meet with a female Chinese entrepreneur, a Zulu tribeswoman or a Ghanaian artisan ‘mama’, what would they ask them?

What could they learn from them?

The answer is a whole heap! Explore our range of educational journeys and expeditions exclusive to girls' schools:

Promotions / Our geography adventures are not for everyone
« on: July 03, 2012, 11:52:53 AM »
If I'm honest, our geography adventures are not for everyone.

Not everyone wants to sleep under starry desert skies, explore rainforest canopies, learn survival skills from San Bushmen or trek amongst high altitude deserts and salt lakes in South America.  If you're of the opinion that a touch of adventure helps brings human and physical geography to life then you'll love our imaginative and diverse geography adventures.

From Turkey, Egypt and Morocco, to Ghana, China, India, Bolivia and more, we will take you right to the beating heart of your destination, with itineraries that cover everything from human and physical geography to cultures, religion, food, festivals and wildlife. 

These are not your average geography trips. But then we believe an extra-ordinary planet deserves to be explored in an extra-ordinary way.

Contact us now to start your journey and we'll have a tailormade itinerary and quote put together before you can say "Ouagadougou".

We're inspired. Are you?
