Look what happened now...
Hello Travel Family,
Can you believe November has come and gone? Soon it will be a bright and shiny new decade!
I have so many adventures and trips planned! There were soooo many amazing deals on offer during Black Friday/Cyber Monday do you grab any? I have a new endeavor going right now and can't leave till it's finished. But look out when it's done! I have a really bad case of wanderlust and have been drooling over a couple of cities I really want to visit. So hopefully by late spring we will be traveling again!
Hope you have a wonderful December packed with wonder and delight.
Hi Travel Fam,
Hope you are warm and well.
There is a winter storm watch here and we are scheduled for snow tonight. (It's only 2 months early, lol.) Today most of America is busy jamming into airports, clogging the roads, and shopping. Thankfully, this year we are staying home. I have deadlines to meet and trips to plan, lol.
Hope that where ever your travels take you in the world, you are safe, warm and happy.
Hi Travel Fam,
I know its been a minute, but I'm still H-E-R-E!
I was going to take you for a walk today to explore Halloween decor and also go out to a nice cafe for lunch. But things did not go to plan...
I will try again, on a sunny day!
1. Getting There
Planes, trains, and automobiles... Of these, planes are the worst, but if you fly on an airline that has taken measures to reduce their carbon footprint by eliminating excess waste and recycling as much as possible, it will be better. Southwest is an airline you might want to consider which has done a lot to reduce their carbon footprint.
What about trains? Trains are a very scenic way to travel and they are not terrible on the environment.
Automobiles? If you are making a road trip, then consider renting a hybrid vehicle if you don’t currently own one.
Look for hotels that use green programs. Also check the hotels location and make sure there is plenty of public transportation nearby that you can use. Once in your hotel, notify them that you don’t need new towels every day. Turn lights off when you leave the room and adjust the thermostat when you are not in the room to use less electricity.
Even though you checked your hotel to see that it has public transportation, also consider finding other ways to travel. If you stay in the city centers you will be able to walk to many places of interest, plus cafes and shops. You could also consider renting a bicycle for the week and traveling by bike.
4. Leave It Cleaner Than When You Got There
It is always good practice to pick up trash when you see it. It can help balance out your carbon footprint and is just the right thing to do.
Also shopping at local farms, farmers markets and small fruit stands while you are away, instead of the grocery store is another way to reduce your carbon foot-print. You will find fresh, local produce and save money too.
Staycations are also a great way to reduce your carbon footprint by exploring things right in your own area and being in nature. Travel definitely takes its toll on the environment, but if you do choose to go away, you can still reduce your carbon footprint when you travel.
