June

France
Our voyage to France will feature homestays in the Loire Valley and language study at Saint-Denis International School in Loches. During our time in the Loire Valley, we will have the opportunity to explore several of the château, including the fortified castle in Loches. Our excursions include a visit to Amboise, a château designed by Leonardo DaVinci for François Ier. As well, we will visit the château of Leonardo Davinci, Clos Lucé. We are organizing a trip to the market in Loches, where we will purchase all the ingredients for a meal prepared by you with the guidance of Justine, a local chef from La Petite Jucherie, a neighboring town. We will also spend two days in Paris and visit La Tour Eiffel, Le Louvre, and Saint Chapelle. If time permits, we will spend a day in Versailles, in addition to a bike ride to the Petit Trianon, château of Marie Antoinette.

Spain
The Basque Country is unique among Spain’s 17 autonomous communities. With its fascinating pre-Indo-European language (hola = kaixo), world-famous gastronomy, rich folkloric traditions, fast-paced sports, and widespread embrace of mother nature, it has something to offer everyone! Come explore Euskadi in the seaside city of San Sebastián as you live and learn with new friends at St. Patrick’s School. After a week in homestays and school-based learning and cultural activities, we will conclude the program in Bilbao.  
 
We are excited to be able to offer the following program supplement and will do so based on student interest: For the final three days of the program, we will travel via bicycle along three stages of the Camino del Norte, one of the paths of the Way of St. James (or Camino de Santiago), a pilgrimage dating back to the 9th. Starting in San Sebastián, we will travel 125 km over three days (~25 mi, 3-4 hrs per day, guided), staying overnight in Deba, Gernika, and Bilbao.

Nepal
Visit Nepal with Tabor in June 2024 to explore the Kathmandu Valley and Chitwan National Park, partnering with grassroots organizations to learn how social, cultural, and environmental issues are being tackled in both rural and urban settings.
