As we welcome students back to the classroom after a summer filled with strange weather, we look forward to our future. As always, our youth is who we turn to when we try to imagine what we want our world to be. We quickly see how much the changing world landscape affects their young minds and we look at the different ways to expand their outlook, their understanding and their learnings. Education has always been the key to enriching their lives and improving their opportunities.

Travel has long been linked to helping the educational experience. Through the difficult years of the pandemic, nothing about that has changed in our belief. We at Fourwinds believe, as strongly as ever, that travel is the best form of education. There is no greater teacher than experience. And the ability to craft that experience alongside learnings in the classroom, to bring to reality what to some feel like just words on a page, causes such a profound impact that we cannot overstate the importance of including these opportunities for your students.

Travel, in all segments and like most things in our world today has gotten significantly more expensive. Rising costs across the board have caused prices to be a continued struggle. But as an operator in this world, this is not a new struggle for us. We have been working creatively with our clients, and partners to create enriching experiences and opportunities for our student travelers for almost three decades. Whether that means finding walking tours versus theatre shows to fill their days, or enjoying a local food-cart meal versus a sit-down restaurant or just simply trying to pack in long days to shorten a trip to stay within our community budget, we continue to work tirelessly to figure out some way to make your trip a reality.

Destination-wise, the trends have come back with force. The monuments and museums in Washington DC, the magic of Disney, and the bright lights of New York continue to fill with the chatter of excited students’ voices. The streets of London, Paris, Berlin, and Dubai all continue to offer wonder and excitement as the stark differences sit juxtaposed with the similarities of the human condition. As you embark on how to shape your curriculum and how to shape your travel opportunities, the important thing to think about is not just how to ensure your student gets their first opportunities to see the skyline of Manhattan, but what other destinations would also offer valued experiences. How can we explore the history of the American Revolution in smaller towns that may be more economical for your families?

And lastly, how flexible can you make your calendar? A lot of time moving your trip a few days or weeks away from other holidays can help keep prices down. Sometimes just shifting it by two days can avoid an overlap with a conference or a festival which means you are no longer competing with sold-out hotels and limited busing or crowded trains.

Fourwinds, and my family, have always been focused on one thing. Conquering your dreams. If you allow your students to imagine, to dream, let us help you make them have those wonders of the mind, become memories of the soul.

Getting back to school after a long summer break can be daunting. One way to make the academic year more enjoyable and stress-free is by setting up planned trips throughout the year.

 

Trip planning is an excellent way to keep your students engaged in learning and motivated throughout the year. In this blog post, we’ll provide tips and tricks on planning your student’s trips ahead of time.

 

Plan During The Holidays 

The holiday period is the best time to plan your student’s trips. You’ll have plenty of time to research the best destinations, transportation methods, and discounts like early bird specials. This will also give your student the much-needed excitement for the upcoming term, knowing there is something to look forward to.

 

Pick the Right Destinations 

Choose destinations that align with your student’s interests and passion. Check out museums, historical sites, national and state parks, or even college visits to make the trip more educational. A trip to the closest library or bookstore can also have a significant impact on your student’s academic growth.

 

Picking the right destination should align with your curriculum focuses whether it’s math, science, history, foreign language, or even simple interests such as clubs.

 

Fundraising Events 

Taking part in fundraising events and competitions can help raise money for the student trip. Encourage your students to get involved in such events, as it cultivates a sense of responsibility and teamwork.

 

Book Transportation and Accommodation Early 

Booking your student’s trip transportation and accommodation early helps avoid unnecessary stress and last-minute rush. You save on unimaginable costs and get the best deals available.

 

Planning ahead is the best way to ensure that the upcoming academic year is relaxing and enjoyable, and this includes planning fun-filled, educational student trips. At Four Winds Travel, we can help you plan the perfect student trip. Contact us today to get started!

 

Traveling is a wonderful way to broaden our perspectives and gain valuable experiences that stay with us for a lifetime. One of the best ways to relive those wonderful memories is by documenting your travels. Here are some of the best tips for documenting your travels:

 

Journal Your Experiences

Keeping a travel journal is a great way to document your journey. You can write about the places you visit, the things you ate, the people you met, and the experiences you had. It’s a great way to capture your thoughts and feelings in the moment, and you can always revisit them later.

 

Take Photos and Videos

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and it’s true. Taking photos and videos of your travels can help you relive those experiences over and over again. Make sure you take plenty of pictures of yourself and your travel companions, as well as the scenery and landmarks.

 

Create a Travel Scrapbook

A travel scrapbook is a fun and creative way to document your travels. You can include your travel itinerary, tickets, maps, postcards, and other memorabilia. You can also add your journal entries, photos, and videos.

 

Share Your Travels on Social Media
