Course Information

Have you ever wanted to travel to explore new places and have amazing adventures? Could you see yourself as a travel blogger or photographer one day?

While Covid has limited our method of travel, nothing should stop us from discovering new places and experiencing new cultures.  

In this course, you will go a journey. Through a range of fiction and non-fiction texts, you will learn to harness the power of visual imagery and bring to life the rich cultural experiences to your reader.
