Whenever I’m on vacation, I like to learn about cultures I’m unfamiliar with. For example, my husband and I plan to study Native American culture this summer while vacationing in North Carolina. We hope to learn how authentic Native American baskets are woven. I’m also interested in Native American pottery and jewelry items. If you have young children at home, consider introducing them to a different culture this year during a summer trip. Visit an exotic location. Tour interesting museums. Most of all, have fun discovering new things together. On this blog, you will discover how to plan a culture filled vacation. Enjoy!
