Meet Road Scholar participant
Joe Mollure looks forward to someday exploring the homeland of his ancestors on a Road Scholar program. Learn a bit about Joe below.
Q: Why do you choose to learn with Road Scholar?
The programs are rich in all the most crucial aspects of lifelong learning, and the experts really help you learn in-depth
about your interests. Also, the cost of the programs includes almost everything you need while traveling.
Q: What was your first Road Scholar program?
About nine years ago, I took part in a short, three-day program exploring the culture of the San Francisco Bay Area.
Q: We offer 5,500 learning adventures in all 50 states and 150 countries around the world. If you could pick just one of those programs, what would it be? Why that one? Why does that program speak to you?
Because of my Italian heritage the programs in Italy are of great interest, especially those exploring the areas my
parents' families came from, such as "Unrevealed Italy: Calabria" (program #18256) and "Siena and the Hill Towns of Tuscany"
Q: Describe your favorite memory from a Road Scholar program.
The thrill of seeing the works of the French Impressionists for the first time. The feeling is hard to describe.
Q: What's the most interesting thing you've learned on a Road Scholar program?
I've learned that there are so many others like me who share the same interests. That's reason enough to commit
to never losing my lust for learning.
Q: Outside of Road Scholar programs, how do you like to challenge your mind?
I enjoy classical music, visiting centers of culture, taking in musical theater and exploring local museums.
