I believe travel is one of the best forms of education. I always come home from a trip with knowledge or a new skill. Often times I seek out trips that will teach me a sport like surfing or a new language. Hotels offer many great learning activities, but I often travel with big groups of friends and we prefer to rent a house. One of my friends introduced me to Exclusive Resorts, a destination club with more than 350 properties across the globe. The company recently introduced a new weekend programs called Destinations in Focus. This partnership with the Leica Akademie is aimed at both novice and experienced shooters. The workshops kicks off in July 2014 at properties in Peninsula Papagayo, Costa Ricao, Real del Mar, Mexico, and Tuscon, Arizona. Each participant has access to a Leica instructor, plus guest photographers who will provide coaching and tips on technique. Your vacation photos will have never looked so good.
