Wild Spirit Travel Classes

Due to Covid-19, we have no in-person classes currently scheduled. We hope to return to the many colleges we teach at when they open again. Until then, check out the Travel Smart Strategies online video library.

Taught by two intrepid travelers, Dan and Shyla, who traveled the world continuously for seven years to seventy countries. They now share their travel wisdom by teaching classes designed to help people travel smarter, safer, and cheaper. They’ve seen almost every travel mistake possible – either made by themselves – or witnessed it in other travelers. And they bring that knowledge to you, so you don’t make the same mistakes.
