Photo Hunt #118: Education

11 Feb

I always believed travel affords one education that you cannot find inside the classroom.

You can read all about Gaudi and his brand of design but unless you travel and see these structures for yourself, it doesn’t seem complete.

Join us in the weekly hunt at PHOTO HUNT.

    Nothing beats first hand experience as a way to learn in my opinion. Great pics 🙂 Happy photo hunt and weekend!

    i agree. stuff i learn from my travels i easily remember and retain, the stuff i learned in school – almost forgotten. experience is the best teacher.

    You’re absolutely correct. I can’t begin to tell you of all that I learned in my travels to China.

    Yeah! We have the same theme! Traveling is not only fun but one can learn lots from the trip.

    I didn’t know Gaudi until I see his awesome work you photographed. I’m going to find out more about him Thanks.

    As the proverbial “they” say, “Travel broadens the mind”. Works for me! 🙂

    i agree too. learning is a continous process and it should not stop in school. Fieldtrips, travelling will further enhance the knowledge that we learned in the school. That is why i like attending tours especially here. I get to learn and update myself and sometime what you learn outside were not even taught in school 🙂

    i fully agree with you a 101%. traveling is educating oneself esp. with things that are not found in books. only when we experience them in reality can we truly understand.

    great take on the theme and lovely photos!

    happy weekend! 🙂

    That’s Gaudi? I thought he mostly worked with gold.

    Looks like I get an education through your post. Thanks. 🙂

    as they say, experience is the best teacher. you got to be there in the place, in the situation to absorb everything. and traveling is not excluded.

    I couldn’t agree more – you get sucha rich education about our world through travel. It really speaks to the fact that learning is more about doing, seeing, and experiencing rather than listening, and reading!
