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 2020

Barcelona is a vibrant and welcoming city on the Catalonia coast of Spain! It is both historic and wildly cutting edge. From the masterworks of Antoni GaudÝ (the Sagrada Familia, Casa MilÓ,  Park GŘell) to the romantic narrow streets of Barri G˛tic; from the beachside dance clubs, to amazing restaurants and FCB stadium, this city by the sea has something for everyone!

Summer 2020 Study Abroad Environmental Sustainability
May 27 - June 23, 2020
: June 3 - 16, 2020
The Greenest City in Europe, Freiburg, Germany leads the continent in researching and implementing innovations in creating a sustainable green lifestyle for all. The course begins and ends at FSU, with students engaging with inter-disciplinary experts to develop a meaningful research project focusing in on environmental sustainability ideals and practices.

While in Germany, we will visit the many cutting edge projects that are leading the world in sustainable living.  We will have experts and practitioners conducting lectures and giving guided tours of the systems that are making Freiburg a leader in ecological sustainabile practices.  But don't worry, we will have some free time to explore the amazing Black Forest region of Germany, France and Switzerland with its ancient castles, historic fortresses, and stunning natural beauty.

This is a special opportunity for futhering one's study of, perhaps, one of the most important topics of our times: the environmental sustainability of human habitation on our planet.

This program is the first of its kind offered at FSU and it will be open to a select group of undergraduates in a broad variety of majors.
