About this trip

Our Speech Language, Pathology & Audiology journey will take you to Peru a unique career enrichment and cultural immersion experience! Explore Peru’s rich cultural heritage (including art, dance, music, literature, cuisine, architecture, beliefs and religion, language, communication) as you learn about their access to quality care, their scope of practice in pathology and audiology, models for service delivery, and relationship to other areas of practice like OT & PT. Peru is reported to have a mid-level program to train professionals to work mostly with neurological disorders, dysphagia, and deafness (in comparison to other countries in the region). Visit with staff at the Ollantaytambo Rural Medical Clinic in the Sacred Valley to learn about access to care issues. 


In addition to the career enrichment opportunities, you will explore the ancient site of Machu Picchu, to learn about Peru's culture past and present as you meet with an expert expedition guide. Other culturally immersive highlights include: Pisaq Market, famous for its fine jewelry, ceramic, and textile craftwork; a Peruvian cooking class which includes a visit to market to purchase your ingredients; a curator-guided tour of the unique Larco Museum; an exploration of the Incan empire with visits to Coricancha, the sun temple and a privately guided tour of Cusco where you will see Sacsayhuman, a citadel north of the city and the former historic capital of the Inca Empire, Tambomachay, the bath of the Inca; Qenco (Kenko) which is one of the largest holy places and believed to be a place where sacrifices and mummification took place; and last stop to see Puca Pucara, a site of military ruins. 


Journey Mission as established by your delegation leader Dr. Dolores Battle, past president of ASHA: The primary goal is to develop an appreciation of the diversity of Peru, its health care needs in rural vs. urban areas, its developing early intervention programs, its programs of service to persons with disabilities and autism, and its special education and literacy programs.

This trip was inspiring for me to reconnect with my family roots. It was so nice to see friends from a previous trip. I enjoyed all the music making experiences, especially making the bodhran at the Irish Institute of Music. The country side in Ireland is beautiful. I enjoyed seeing all the houses, land, and sheep. The Gap of Dunloe was incredible. This 2 hour trip in a horse drawn cart seemed like a Star Wars movie set. I am especially grateful for the connections we all made during the trip, whether it was with our Guide, the local people and with my fellow travelers.

The Music Education Journey through Ireland with Dr. Lynn Brinckmeyer arranged by Nanda Journeys was extraordinary! Each detail, well planned with love by Nicola Balmain and Team, productively maximized opportunities for not only traveling throughout the country but experiencing the people, the sights, the food and for our particular interests - the music and culture! Our tour guide and driver were most attentive and professional insuring that we all had the best experiences possible! The magic of Ireland will be with us for a long time. With thanks and appreciation! Dr. Elise Sobol (New York, NY)

This was an amazing trip. The Group immediately gelled into a family-like entity. The itinerary was fast paced, filled with great information and hands on experiences. I felt we were able to see the "real" Ireland, and not the usual tourist sites. The accommodations were top notch. The food was outstanding. The only thing that would have made it better would have been another week. I would do it all over in a heartbeat!

This trip was wonderful! We immersed ourselves in the culture with music, dance, food, history, and many sites. The country was green, clean and the people very welcoming. Our guide was very good with making sure we saw and did not only the itinerary but added little surprises along the way to add to our experience. A very enjoyable trip.

The trip felt like a dream. Every day we discovered a new WOW about the country or an experience that we had in our activities! The people, music, landscape, local establishments & food were all impeccable! Our guide was caring and worked hard to give us a top of the world experience! He was not only a guide but became a member of our group and new friend. Thank you Nanda & Lynn Brinckmeyer for arranging a high quality trip!
