How cool would it be to go away on a trip and come back with a new skill? Travelers can learn to cook in France, take up dance in Spain, study wine in California or even work on their writing skills. If one of your dream have been to write, aspiring writers can stay at an authentic dude ranch in Colorado, explore Native American heritage in Santa Fe or spend 8-days touring Bali — all while learning the skills needed to be a travel writer. Costs are similar to the cost of a normal vacation package, and workshop/tour combos start at $995. Accommodations, tours, activities, workshop classes and most meals are included.
