As travel becomes more accessible and affordable, more people are exploring different parts of the world, seeking new experiences and adventures. However, as much as travel can be exciting and fulfilling, it also has the potential to have negative impacts on the environment, local communities, and cultural heritage. Ethical and sustainable travel is an approach that seeks to minimize these negative impacts while maximizing the benefits of travel for both the traveler and the host community. In this blog post, we will explore the concept of ethical and sustainable travel and how it can help people and enrich their lives
Ethical and sustainable travel is an approach that is grounded in the principles of responsible and conscious travel. It seeks to minimize the negative impacts of tourism on the environment, local communities, and cultural heritage, while maximizing the benefits of travel for both the traveler and the host community. Ethical travel is not just about being environmentally responsible, but also about respecting the culture, traditions, and beliefs of the local people.
One of the benefits of ethical and sustainable travel is that it allows travelers to have a more meaningful and authentic experience. Rather than simply being a passive observer of the local culture, travelers are encouraged to engage with the local community, learn about their traditions and way of life, and contribute to their economy. This can be done through activities such as volunteering, homestays, and local tours. By doing so, travelers gain a deeper appreciation and understanding of the local culture, and the locals benefit from increased economic opportunities and cultural exchange.
Over the next few months I will be talking more about this concept and sharing how this philosophy has made my trips much more meaningful.
I hope you are enjoying the changing seasons? We are spending as much time outside as possible, fitting in activities before the weather turns off cold and wet. Plus, after the terrible summer heat it feels fantastic to be outside without melting!
Last month I explored a Texas state park (watch Video here) and in late October I was excited to go back again and camp. For this trip we rented a rustic cabin inside the park. It included beds, mini fridge. microwave and water on a tap outside. It was a short walk to the bathrooms and because we went on a Wednesday we had the park almost to ourselves.
Watch the video here:
I think this was just what I needed. I've been feeling so overwhelmed with work and other projects that a nature break really reset my energy and creativity. But I returned home so inspired! I often forget how relaxing it is to be away from all our devices!
We saw so many birds, deer and other wildlife and the weather was perfect!
Unfortunately, we didn't do as much as planned, but it was so great to be in nature and get away from everything. I can't wait to go back!
See you at the airport!
