What is travel but a quest for something that can’t be Googled? It’s as good a definition as any. It’s designed not only to broaden the mind, but to stretch the mind and tie it in a bow beneath your chin. You’ll probably learn something no matter where you decide to travel, but to cram the maximum knowledge into the minimum time, we’ve pulled together a few trips to get you started. Why not work on your Russian in the museums of St Petersburg, expand your knowledge of Armenian wine (yep, it’s a thing) in Yerevan, hear the stories of the Dreaming from Indigenous guides at Uluru or pick up the secrets of Beijing’s street food scene? Sit up straight, the lesson is about to begin.
