Everett Community College is hosting an informational session later this month for those who may want to travel to Indonesia this spring…

Learn about an opportunity travel to Indonesia with Everett Community College at an information session at 3-4 p.m. Feb. 19 at EvCC’s Gray Wolf Hall, Room 276.

The trip, June 14-28, includes a tour of ancient Javanese temples, swimming in the Indian Ocean and learning about culture and history.

“This trip isn’t your typical vacation,” said EvCC anthropology instructor Cynthia Clarke, who is coordinating the Indonesia trip. “We’ll have a candlelight dinner inside a temple, match travelers with local guides and learn about the area while we explore one of the most beautiful places in the world.”

To participate, contact Clarke at cclarke@everettcc.edu or 425-388-9382. A $500 non-refundable deposit is due by March 14.

The cost is $2,300, plus travel expenses, such as airfare and travel insurance. The cost includes hotel, transportation, lectures, language lessons and almost all meals. Participants can earn 1-5 college credits.

“Compared to the cost and depth of other tours, this is an affordable option for an adventure for travelers interested in more than tourism,” Clarke said.
