Intellectual Stimulation


Various courses, Educational Documentaries and Lectures you can attend

As soon as people leave school they think this is the end of studying when it is probably the beginning of studying what you are truly passionate about. You have to stimulate your mind whether it is furthering your studies or learning something new you are interested in. This might include learning to paraglide then possibly taking this further into getting your glider pilots license (GPL). The more you delve into understanding different sciences the more you understand life and what it is about and will therefore live a fuller life of excitement and wonder recognizing issues around you. For instance what is the use of learning to scuba dive if you cannot identify any of the species around you. Do a course whenever you are in Ponta do Ouro to learn about life on land or in the ocean to really make your visit a stimulating one. Here are some of the courses offered by various organisations within the Elephant Coast region.
