I always wanted a different kind of holiday, a longer one but with a real impact in my quality of life, learning something that could be a qualitative improvement for years ahead or just taking a leap of faith. If it were possible in terms of work flexibility, then summer classes abroad would be my perfect way to spend the holidays. As my passion is travelling and contemporary art then what I propose you here bellow would be exactly my top choice. There is still a lot of programs from one week to 4 weeks and more so no excuse about time.
