Want to know how to travel smarter, safer, and cheaper? You can, through our series of Travel Smart Strategies classes. Our classes, were created by Shyla & Dan Bare, who have traveled around-the-world for seven years. They have explored seventy-four countries on six continents. It is the accumulation of their travel knowledge that is the basis for the twenty different classes now available from Wild Spirit Travel. In the classes, they cover how to save money while traveling, safe travel strategies, and of course, how to have fun so you have the trip of your dreams!

Travel Smart Video Classes

Classes are taught in-person at local venues in the Pacific Northwest, including Portland Community College, Bellevue College, and Multnomah Athletic Club. If you can’t make it to a class don’t worry. They are also offered as video classes where you can take them when and where you want.

In addition to travel classes, Dan and Shyla share their passion for travel through informative and inspirational travel presentations. Their presentations convey enthusiasm, as they enthrall travel dreamers and seasoned travelers alike. Shyla and Dan have delighted audiences on three continents, giving talks that demystify the travel process while encouraging travel dreams.
