We are Judy Otto and Brian Cacchiotti, two married geography professors who want you to travel the world and expand your horizons!  We offer several travel opportunities each year through Framingham State University, for both personal enrichment and course credit.  We have been leading student tours with Framingham State since 2010 and have had more than 300 travelers discover new and exciting things about the world... and themselves!

We welcome EVERYONE to travel with us... if you can be considered a friend of Framingham State or Salem State!  This includes current students, past students, alumni, faculty, librarians, staff, and their friends and family!  In fact, you do not need to have a current connection to either school... if you want to come, and you have an adventurous attitude... JOIN US!  Unfortunately, unaccompanied minors can not travel with us. Sorry.

As geography educators it is an important part of our mission to present the many amazing aspects of our world to anyone seeking better understanding, more adventure, incredible beauty, natural and man-made splendor, or just the opportunity to see this astonishing planet and meet its fascinating inhabitants!

As Brian said at our Welcome Dinner in Athens, Greece...

"Bringing the world to you means the world to us!"


These are the travel opportunities for 2019
