Do you long to travel the world? Do you have a mental itinerary drawn up but you’re not sure about how to make it reality given the state of your finances and the state of the world? Fear not! Coleen Barry is here to help. She wants to show you how safe, inexpensive world travel is a real possibility!

Whole Earth Provision Co. is pleased to announce a free travel education workshop at our Preston Forest store in Dallas on May 7th at 6:30 pm. Coleen Barry, a volunteer Travel Educator with Hostelling International-USA, will be leading World Travel 101 for first time international travelers and those who’d like a refresher. Coleen will show you how to plan an itinerary, prepare a budget, survey your transportation options, how to save and carry money, how to pack, choose accommodations, and be safe.

Hostelling International-USA was founded in 1934. Today it is a part of a network of over 50 quality hostel facilities across the United States (including Austin and Houston) and is affiliated with an international network of over 4000 hostels in 60 countries.

Coleen Barry has traveled extensively throughout Europe and Asia. She usually travels solo, but occasionally acquires travel companions along the way. She likes to alternate her time between traveling from place to place with stops devoted to volunteering and taking part in work exchanges. She is now a freelance copywriter and hopes to one day engage in full-time sustainable travel.

So let Coleen set you on a pathway to new adventures in 2015 and beyond with World Travel 101.
