Welcome to Travel Tribe’s Exploration and Adventure in India!
In this dynamic, fast-paced course, we will explore the history, language, food, culture, traditions, celebrations, geography, animals and famous sites of India. The course then dives into the construction, history and fun facts about one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World, the Taj Mahal.
Students explore local traditions and fun facts that shape this country into the exciting and dynamic place that it is today. Students discover the major cities, learn how to fit in like a local, and check out what to explore in each city, and how to make the most of India if you’re only in town for a few days.
Whether you are planning for a post-Covid vacation, wanting a virtual adventure, or planning your next long-term-digital-nomad destination, this course is for you!
Some of the fun-fact topics we will explore:
•How (and when) did people first arrive in India?
•What animals are native to India?
•Why was the Taj Mahal built?
•What is the current capital of India and how does it handle its constantly growing population?
•What does Indian dance look like?
•What is the Indian Festival of Lights?
•What is the Caste System?
•Why can cows and monkeys freely wander the city streets?
As the saying goes, “Traveling makes you speechless, and then makes you a storyteller.” In this course, you will be prompted to answer questions similar to the prompts above in your Travel Journal, in order to further your understanding and curiosity about each aspect of India that we explore in this course.
