Write, Travel, Transform: A Creative Pilgrimage on the Camino De Santiago, Spain
Hiking the Camino has been on Laura's bucket list years—and maybe it's on yours. This famous pilgrimage trail, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, has attracted people from all over the world for more than 1,000 years. Our 14 day trip will combine eight days hiking the last 100 km of the French Camino de Santiago with four days focused on creative expression. At the beginning, middle, and end of our trip, non-hiking days will be set aside for Laura to teach writing and our guide, Brenda, to teach quick sketching and watercolor techniques, helping to experience and reflect on your journey. Beginners in both disciplines are welcome. After 14 days in Spain, immersed in beauty and an intimate traveling community, you'll return home with a personal journal documenting your journey.
Write, Travel, Transform: Writing, Yoga & Cultural Exploration in Magical Tuscany
Journey to sun-soaked Tuscany for a ten-day retreat at a majestic 15th century estate seated on the rolling hills of the Italian countryside. Located just 45 minutes away from Florence, the Villa I Bonsi is a vineyard and olive farm ideal for relaxing and exploring the cultural wonders of a region celebrated for its history and food. Writing and yoga will be at the heart of the retreat and will help us bond as a group. This sensually rich vacation includes sumptuous meals, an olive oil tour, truffle hunting, a wine tasting tour at rock and roll icon Sting's villa, an Italian cooking class, and a day trip to Lucca with its well-preserved renaissance walls and cobblestone streets. An optional four-day tour of Florence will provide a unique, intimate experience of this magical city. Spouses and non-writing friends are welcome to join in on the fun.
Consider joining us the adventure of a lifetime.
