Essential Travel Experience #95 — Learn Something New at a School

    Schools are not typically the type of place that people head for on vacation. However, there are some special schools that are interesting to visit, perhaps because of their architecture or maybe something they display or offer to the traveler.

    We have encountered a few of these places in our travels and would like to share some with you. The Lunenburg Academy is particularly noticeable because of its architecture and its prominence just above the lovely town which is a World Heritage Site.
