Latin Teacher and Travel Expert Thomas Talboy Receives High Marks for Thrilling Tour of Italy

When seventh-grade student, Patrick, returned from a tour of Italy with his family he was so excited to have experienced an adventure led by his Latin teacher, Dr. Thomas Talboy that he immediately began writing for his school student newsletter. In the newsletter, Patrick described his trip: "I was fortunate to go on this trip. I liked the time in Italy because it was interesting to explore a country that had a long history and rich culinary tradition. It was also fun to be with a teacher in a non-academic setting."

Talboy has been leading tours for over five years, using his company, Ubiquity International, LLC, to arrange accommodations, transportation and more.

Talboy says, "Every tour is unique so that it is rewarding for each participant." This is what Patrick is responding to it seems. Talboy continued, "Patrick's energetic response to the trip is what I hope every tour participant experiences."

Patrick continued, "Dr. Talboy's passion for art, languages and history was evident in his entertaining description of the sights. Oh yes, he also found Latin words and phrases to translate everywhere."

Talboy talked about this praise, "I love teaching Latin. My students will tell you that my class is more than just language - we explore the everyday world to enhance the classroom experience. When someone like Patrick embraces the language, art, history and culture of the world and sees this connection, the reward is even greater."

Chong concluded, "The trip with Dr. Talboy was an adventure because he is a destination expert and allowed me to learn while having the time of my life!"

Asked for a final reaction, Talboy quipped, "Patrick's conclusion says it all."

Talboy received a PhD in Classics from the University of Nottingham, England. Besides leading tours of Europe, he teaches Latin in San Francisco, California.
