Andre Chavez in Venice, Italy
An article on gues-tblogger Andre Chavez
I love to learn but nothing will surpass my love to travel. I’ve been to courses all over the country: Boston, New Orleans, Denver, Nashville, San Diego, the list goes on and on . . . This is why I’m completely on board (pardon the pun) with Jetset Rehab Education. I have money set aside by my employer each year for continuing education courses and I get an excuse to travel along the way.
Last fall, I went to Prague for a weeklong course. Not only was it a stellar class, but I had the opportunity to rub elbows, dine, share drinks with, and get to know the instructors on a personal level. There were over 15 countries represented in the class. It was an eye opening experience to discover that physical therapists from around the world had the same questions and concerns as I did. It gave me a glimpse into their culture while giving my worldview a new perspective. Not to mention Prague is just fabulous on its own.
After the course was over, I decided to take side trips to Turkey and Hungary. Why not? I figured I might as well learn more about the eastern block countries. It ended up being a great cross-cultural experience, stuff you just can’t learn in a classroom.
I have also met amazing colleagues and lifelong friends by taking courses all over the states. When we catch up, we often reminisce about the one course where it all started. You can travel across the world, or just cross the state border, for a great course and a good time.
Go anywhere that you can get away from it all. Learn, network, let your hair down, and have some fun!
Whether you are learning to travel or traveling to learn, this is the opportunity for you.
