For people who love to travel, and who love to create – what could be better than an entire week exploring new places, experiencing new tastes, sounds, cultures, and creating new projects every day! Whether you prefer to travel solo or with a friend, the Creative Travel Club will enable you to experience the authentic taste of Portugal – discover those hidden gems known only to the locals; meander through the alleys of ancient Lisbon; stumble on little treasures in the narrow streets of Sintra; develop a passion for pastries and cafézinho. Draw inspiration from all around you and share your discoveries in studio with your fellow Creative Travellers. Interpret the sights and the essence of Portugal into unique contemporary projects whilst learning new creative skills and techniques.

Join Gloria Bastos and Elizabeth Morley on a weeklong journey of (re)discovery and creative expression in beautiful Sintra, on the outskirts of sunny Lisbon, Portugal. With 25 years of creative experience under their belts, these girls are there to help you express your own creative potential – and have fun in the process!

Many people confuse creativity with artistic ability, but as Steve jobs once said…..

“Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things.”


How much time have you spent on yourself this year?  Chances are, not enough!  This is your opportunity to nurture your dreams, get in touch with your creative side and explore a wonderful country with a laid back way of life, beautiful scenery and a sunny climate and disposition.

A break-away with the Creative Travel Club will introduce you to a contemporary array of creative skills through practical hands-on projects.  It’ll generate a deeper awareness of your creative thinking process and can equip you to find out of the box solutions to everyday challenges.  It’ll offer you rich experiences of a beautiful country and provide you with a fistful of creative skills.  It’ll connect you with like-minded people and help you explore a myriad of new possibilities for a brighter future.

So many people spend so much of their lives attending to the needs of others and they don’t prioritise time for themselves.  Many will even feel that setting aside time for the pursuit of their dreams, desires and activities is rather selfish.  It’s been proven through extensive research that people who have a hobby and that spend a few hours a week working at the things that give them pleasure, are generally more balanced individuals.  They’re often more resilient and better able to face the challenges that life throws at them.  A number of Medical Insurance Schemes have gone as far as rewarding members who are actively involved in hobbies, crafts and leisure activities as these are often a deterrent for physical ailments, depression and lack of productivity.
