What could be better than going to a European country like Greece and earning university or college credit? Or learning painting on an island from an instructor adventurous and spirited enough to actually teach painting on a Greek island? Or what about learning Greek while living in Greece? Or learning to sail in the waters of the Aegean? Or learning about the Greek Gods and Goddesses, Plato, Socrates, Aristotle and Euripides in the land where it all happened?
