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.
