Travel with Go Learn: Upcoming Trips
Umbria, the heart of Italy — April 2013
Come on a journey with us—exploring Etruscan hill towns that turned into city states; following the footsteps of people such as Saint Francis of Assisi, Fra Angelico, and Luca Signorelli; tuning in to the pulse of the land and the people at the soul of Italy. Taste the bounty of Italy's soil as we enjoy truffles, savor wines and indulge in cooking lessons. Let our University of Utah Italian expert Giuliana Marple guide you through her Italy not simply as a tourist, but as a scholar, connoisseur, and true Italophile.
Architecture and Gardens of Japan — May 2013
Mimi Locher, professor at the College of Architecture + Planning, invites you on a journey to study the contemporary and traditional architecture, gardens and landscapes of Japan. In no other country is history, culture and perception on life so much reflected and anchored in its architecture as it is in Japan. Join Mimi and become immersed in "Old Tokyo" and "Modern Tokyo", Matsumoto Castle, World Heritage village of Shirakawa-go, the samurai quarter of Kanazawa, and the many, many wonders of Kyoto. This trip will leave you inspired with an in-depth knowledge of Japanese concepts of space, purpose and way of life, culture, and history – all reflected in its gardens and architecture.

Writing and Photography in Centennial Valley, Montana — September 2013
Come and write with us! Award winning writer and photographer Stephen Trimble will take you and your writing and photography on a journey to Centennial Valley, Montana.
