I still remember how to cook, thank god. Wild boar backstraps, seared in duck fat and oven finished. Rice with toasted almonds and sage. Kale by itself is a real basic white bitch so I added chard and nutmeg. #thisissustainable #fuckyourtraeger
Every time I visit a weaving cooperative I learn something new.  Although I worked in fashion for a decade I had no idea until I visited @ockpoptok that the color indigo comes from a leaf! If you add limestone it will turn blue but if you ferment the leaves the dye will turn green. Indigo smells terrible but looks so beautiful when applied to natural fibers.  The Tai Lue people of Laos tie white cotton around the indigo pot to stop the spirit from leaving while H’mong put a chili in the pot and Tai Lao put a knife on the pot. The cultural beliefs and practices vary widely in Laos.
This little place in the Osa is move-in ready. Just ask @lokaltravels ✨ #communitytourism #thisissustainable #costarica #throwbackthursday
Microsoft pledges $500 million to address homelessness, affordable housing in the Seattle area. ITGS is focused on sustainable communities, including a home for everyone who wants one. So we are excited by this fantastic first step by Microsoft!

From our last day in Vietnam. I hope you like it even though I didn’t insert myself into it! 😆 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On a serious note, when we left on this trip 13 months ago, I went almost all in on the travel side to EcoCult. And you know what? It didn’t work out. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I wrote up a ton of place guides, crafted long and detailed eco resort reviews, and shared pictures of me staring out at the view in beautiful places. I spread myself really thin trying to do and capture everything and be an amazing sustainable travel blogger. And... y’all didn’t care. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Maybe because there are so many other great travel bloggers out there. Maybe because that’s not why you started following me. Maybe because you could tell I was forcing it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That’s ok. For a long time I’ve known that one of my biggest weaknesses is that I have trouble focusing and narrowing down my interests. But now I see that I should really focus on what I’m good at: thoughtful and well-researched articles on sustainable and ethical fashion. Once I realized that, I was able to relax just a bit and achieve some work-travel balance. I worked hard on the fashion research to each place, and then enjoyed the touristy stuff without begging my husband to take pictures of me in every location. Well, except when I had a fun sustainable outfit to share! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So get ready for pretty much no travel stuff in 2019, and wayyy more eco fashion stuff. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But I just had to share this final picture because I love it.  #vietnam #hanoivietnam
Flew up to the arctic circle today from Oslo, and this is as far up as the sun got during sunrise before it starting peaking down again as we moved farther north. So surreal to think that we won’t see the sun for the next four days of our trip.  Check out my stories for more from Norway.  #visitnorway #flynorwegian #thisissustainable
Sak Yant: The heart of men/women. . . . Part of what makes a Sak Yant so special is how individualized each tattoo an experience is. From the tattoo itself to the blessing, your experience will be unique to you. . . . We're proud to take you on this journey. Your experience begins with a conversation between you and the Ajarn about your life. From there a decision is made in regards to the different kind of power/meaning behind it. Which is why we've ensured our Ajarn's adhere to the highest standards. What is your propose to receive a Sak Yant? . . . . For further information/inquires please send us an email. . . . 📍 Bangkok, Thailand #wsetravel #thisissustainable #sacredbangkok

Like I did for Rome, ending my stories about Florence by tagging everyone who made this trip so special in my photo. If you’re considering traveling to Firenze soon, or if you want to bookmark this for later, I hope you will also do your own research to see if these people & their small businesses can be a part of your travel to Italy. . As a self employed business woman, I have such a huge heart for supporting other small businesses and that’s why I was so grateful to visit Florence and Rome with Alison of @vivalifestylepr. She brought together the most wonderful group of locals in both cities and so many friendships were made or deepened as a result of this trip. . I want the same for you when you travel. Instagram has become such a double edged sword. It encourages a lifestyle of going to places merely to check off a list of shots you want to get that you’ve seen a hundred times before without learning anything about a local culture or contributing positively in any way to the future of a place. Though my engagement is suffering because I do not want to play that game — or any other, and I got my following a long time ago which also isn’t in my favor — I’m trying to continue to not play that game because I care about people. And people such as the ones I’ve tagged here will continue to be the heart and soul of what I do as long as I can help it. ♥️
Getting away from the "top ten" listicles and beaten path can yield not only amazing travel experiences but transformative ones. Places like Maha Sarakham, Thailand offers a glimpse into traditional Thai culture and values which have all but died out in places like Bangkok and the Thai Islands. Maha Sarakham is a province in Thailands Isan region. Thailands largest region yet one of it's least touristed. And we highly recommend taking advantage of this fact. Khong Kut Wai Fish Sanctuary is a great place to soak in the tranquillity and biodiversity of Maha Sarakham. Where is the most off the beaten path place you've explored?  #thailand #wsetravel #thisissustainable 📍 Maha Sarakham, Thailand 📷 photo credit: @saravutwhanset Little monk,Thailand  #mahasarakham #monk #buffalo #animal #discoverglobe #doyoutravel #awesomepix #traveldeeper #livetravelchannel #welivetoexplore #awesome_photographers #traveltheworld #thailand_allshots #adayinthailand #insta_thailand #traveladdict #getoutside #backpacking #exploremore #adventuretime #amazing_shots #beautifulseasia #passionpassport #travelasia #nakedplanet #responsibletourism #communitybasedtourism
Monteverde, Costa Rica and it's Cloud Forest Reserve have become beacons of light for ecotourists and researchers alike. While it remains one of the worlds most popular natural attractions, what makes it so popular comes down to its immense biodiversity and ecological research opportunities. Quetzals, Ocelots, Toucans can be found here. Along with over 100 other species of mammals and 400 bird species. Not to mention the thousands of plants varieties. Be sure to hire an experienced travel company to help you fully explore the amazing offerings of Monteverde and Cloud Forest Reserve. Nothing beats being safe and leaving behind a small footprint.

TLC never said not to have lunch over a waterfall! Carpe Diem is located near the famous Kuang Si waterfalls which pour over into their property. They only work with local producers and give 5% of profits ASAS which supports marginalized people in Laos. I can’t think of a better way to seize the day!
3/3 Spiritual enlightment As I was driving through the windy roads of the Indian Himalayas. I saw this man walking- no day pack necessary. Just the clothes that hang from him and a stick in his hand. I asked where he was going and he said to a temple where he may decide to spend the night. I actually visited that temple later and it wasnt a "walk in the park"! Sadhu's live a true nomadic lifestyle and find happiness through a deeper discovery that most of us will never be able to understand. @fernwehfairtravel. . . . . . #incredibleindia #lonelyplanetindia #travelgram #instatravel #photooftheday #travelrealindia #discoverearth #passionpassport #travelcommunity #lonelyplanet #ourplanetdaily #shotonmoment #yoga #top_traveler_world #indiaview #myfavplaces #lokalstory #ngtindia #thisissustainable #responsibletravel @natgeotravel #yourshotphotographer #ichooseplanet #storiesofindia #indianphotographyclub #toi #_neindia #_woi #uniquephotographyclub #inifinite_clicks #outlooktraveller
Regrann from @wsetravel - Los Cajones de Chame is a special experience in Panama. Part aquatic adventure part spiritual journey. This area of Panama is full of caves, waterfalls, and rivers which will instantly give you a "back to nature feeling". Truly off the beaten path, it's highly recommended you explore this area with a local guide. As the biodiversity here can change quite quickly given its remoteness.

#thatsawrap🎬 for @colorfactoryco ! . . This was a special occasion for us because it was the very first shoot 📸 of the year! I wanted to create something a bit different from previous projects and explore a nexus between art + sustainability. . . Art can be a great catalyst for change as it calls for attention/interest. When art is paired with causes such as sustainability, the environment, social impact...etc what it really does is create awareness for a cause in hopes of provoking an emotional response that could lead into action. So if you are an #artivist working on projects with a sustainable and social message, we want to hear from you! . . “The first thing you see upon entering is a poem by Queens writer Won McIntosh, who uses colors of the city—the green of ubiquitous sidewalk sheds, or the bright orange assigned to the F train—as inspiration.The Big Apple is one of the most colorful cities in the world: Its beautiful spectrum of diversity is reflected in all the city's sights, sounds, tastes, and smells.“ Source: @colorfactoryco . . . #colorfactory #diversity #artivism #artivismo #nyc #communitymade #wemakers #thisissustainable  #openforbusiness #sdgart #climateaction #socialimpact #changemakers #urbanonsite socent #artivism #csr  #newyorkcity #gogreen #socialgood #community #sustainable #socialimpact #photography #contentwriting  @art2030 @unenvironment

The best way to receive a Sak Yant Tattoo is to discuss with an Ajarn or Monk what will suit you best. This will give  them a better understanding of the story, purpose and enchantment you should be getting rather than doing your own research. Each Ajarn and Monk has their own signature and enchantments which will not be on the internet. . . .

It's no surprise that the world of produce involves a lot of waste, whether it's due to certain aesthetic standards or the use of packaging material.  Today, we're shining a spotlight on two organizations that are aiming to revolutionize the grocery shopping process and combat waste industry-wide: @misfitsmarket and Brooklyn-based @precyclenyc.
2/3 Spiritual enlightment  I met this Guru of yoga on the river Ganges in the foothills of the Himalayas. I was very fortunate to spend 3days (or more 🤔) 1-1 with him. These shots were taken on his birthday, shortly after inviting me to his religious ceremony.  Rishikesh is the yoga capital of the world and Saras (guru pictured) was actually one of the first ever teachers in Rishikesh before the international boom. I felt very fortunate to be let into the world of any guru, let alone one of the original teachers of Rishikesh that has shaped the world of yoga. . . . . . #incredibleindia #lonelyplanetindia #travelgram #instatravel #photooftheday #travelrealindia #discoverearth #passionpassport #travelcommunity #lonelyplanet #ourplanetdaily #shotonmoment #yoga #top_traveler_world #indiaview #myfavplaces #lokalstory #ngtindia #thisissustainable #responsibletravel @natgeotravel #yourshotphotographer #ichooseplanet #storiesofindia #indianphotographyclub #toi #_neindia #_woi #uniquephotographyclub #inifinite_clicks #outlooktraveller
My friends at @lokaltravels released a documentary, “2.5% - the Osa Peninsula” last year. It showcases the impact of community tourism in the Osa by following several locals like Xinia and Carlos, who have moved on from gold mining and hunting to expand the local economy through tourism. I went to the Osa with Lokal to meet these folks and experience this place from their perspective. I learned about everything from gold mining to sustainable farming. I found nothing but beauty, magic and open hearts. I highly recommend watching the film for a taste - link in bio. ✨ #thisissustainable #communitytourism #costarica #osapeninsula 📷 @eytan_e, @mariedantonio  and me
Yesterday when we arrived after our 2-hour muddy trek to this swimming hole, we found a paleo-climatology researcher from California State U packing up to leave. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Are you going swimming?” she asked us. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Yup!” I said. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Could you scoop up whatever is at the bottom and email me a picture?” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “How about I just go in now and get some for you?” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I dove in and scooped some sand and brought it back to her. She was disappointed with what I brought her. She was hoping for limestone mud, because that washes off the mountain and forms sediment layers over the years. Then she could take a core sample and analyze it to see how the climate has changed in Central Vietnam. The north of Vietnam’s climate is getting much drier, she told me, but they’re not sure how this beautiful ecosystem is affected yet by climate change. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I was happy to help her work in whatever way I can, however small! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Wearing a matching recycled polyester yoga top and pants from @faire.shop. Recycled polyester has a much lower carbon footprint than virgin polyester, which is a plastic thread made from petroleum. If we had a carbon fee, then recycled polyester would be cheaper than virgin, but right now oil is so cheap, most companies are going to stick to using virgin polyester. So your fashion choices matter, but supporting a carbon fee and dividend matters more in the fight against climate change! (And that is how I connected a paleoclimatologist to my outfit choice. BOOM.) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #sustainablefashion #phongnha #swimminghole #paleoclimatology #carbonfeeanddividend
New Year. New goals. - (#ad) I’ve taken the Nature Conservancy’s (@nature_org) Everyday Sustainability Guide to heat 💚 and given myself a challenge this year to reduce/eliminate plastic bottle use. 💦 - I’ve already made other sustainability adjustment like solar panels on my home, driving a hybrid and walking whenever possible to do my errands. Which I was doing the day this pic was taken when I walked to my doctors appointment and a coffee date.  It just takes a little adjustment to make a new habit and this year it will be to reduce/eliminate plastic bottles. I’ve largely done that at home, but with travel it’s difficult. I’ve gotten sick all over the world (thanks Mexico, Colomia and Portugal). So I talked to Santa about it and he got me a SteriPen. It eliminates 99% of the bad bacteria and protoza and viruses from water. So I will be taking it on my upcoming trips to Colombia and Mexico and will NOT be a bottled water hog. - So what sorts of earth friendly goals have you made for the year? Get some ideas on my bio link. - - - - - - - #thisissustainable #reducereuserecycle #sustainableliving #noplastic #femaletravelbloggers #sheisnotlost #dametraveler #girlslovetravel #igglobalwomenclub #girlscreating #plasticfree #strideby #ig_street #challengerstreets #capturestreets #loves_street #street_perfection #iwalkedthisstreet #jj_streetshots #tv_streetlife #timeless_streets
Consistently topping lists of the worlds most beautiful beaches, the Phillippines offers us some of the most stunning nautical experiences. Topping most adventure tourists list is Palawan. While places like Coron and El Nido get most of the attention on Palawan, this island has many gems to share. Including places like Olangoan Falls and Araceli. Palawan is the perfect example of a place where you want to break off the beaten path. We recommend the Islands of Balabac. Truly off the grid.

1/3 Spritual enlightment | This man is a Sadhu. Pictured outside of his home - a cave in the himalayan mountains... yes a CAVE. Sadhus leave all materialistic attachments behind and dedicated their lives to achieving spiritual liberation. He lives alone & rarely gets visitors so he invited us in for tea and we exchanged stories. Living the simple life and the happiest guy around.

Wat Phaphay was the first temple I visited in Luang Prabang and quickly became my favorite. I strolled in at dusk during the evening chant. A novice monk greeted me with a smile, handed me a book of the mantras, and showed me how to sit and hold my hands in the lotus prayer position. I was thrilled to return a few days later with @backstreetacademy to learn about Buddhism in Laos from a monk who led me through a meditation after our chat. I had such a fulfilling experience every time I visited this temple, it’ll always hold a special place in my heart.
Is there a waterfall? Ok, I’ll go. ✨ #thisissustainable #waterfall #costarica @lokaltravels 📷 @eytan_e

On January 1st, #nyc said goodbye to single-use styrofoam. Foam products, including takeout containers, cups, packing peanuts, plates, bowls, and trays are now banned from possession, sale or use. Businesses have until June 30th of this year to get rid of any remaining foam or could face fines.
Lately I’ve been in an odd phase where I’m not quite sure exactly what I want-which is unusual for me. My schedule is open from end of March to end of September and part of me was so looking forward to traveling to new-to-me places like The Philippines, Taiwan, Japan, and South Korea. The other part is craving some stability, staying in one place, and making a community after meeting really great people lately. How do I decide? There’s so much world to see! To spend 6 months in one place instead of 4 feels like a mistake, but traveling full-time is becoming more tiring than fulfilling lately.
This old van has terrible mileage and smells like diesel. But we took a 24-hour train to get here. So I think on net it’s a win for the environment. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you ever visit Vietnam, please do come to Phong Nha National Park. The caves here are astounding, and with the mist and mountains, it’s peacefully beautiful. We saw 0 other tourists during our trek...and no trash either. What a rarity! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ See more in my stories! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #ecotravel #sustainabletravel #phongnha
I’m currently on a remote island in Cambodia and haven’t had any cell service the last few days which meant every moment looked a bit like this! 🌴
3/3 Final shot from the mountain families.  I was photographing a young girl cleaning pots & pans and as I turned out there was a whole family that came out and sat on their door step to watch me. It looked so picturesque with the colourful houses, bales of straw & the mountain backdrop.. I had to grab a shot! It occurred to me how interesting it must have been to them with a photographer with a big camera turning up in their village. . . . . . #incredibleindia #lonelyplanetindia #travelgram #instatravel #photooftheday #travelrealindia #discoverearth #discoverindia #tlpicks #passionpassport #travelcommunity #lonelyplanet #expediapic #ourplanetdaily #shotonmoment #mytaleinnature #graceontravel #top_traveler_world #indiaview #myfavplaces #lokalstory #ngtindia #thisissustainable #responsibletravel @fernwehfairtravel @impacttravelalliance @natgeotravel #yourshotphotographer #ngtuk #ngtindia #ichooseplanet #landscape_features_ #storiesofindia #indianphotographyclub
I wrote a blog post about a tiny tea shop I so dearly loved in a village called #mawlynnong in India.  Here's an excerpt: "It’s August in 2018. The sun retires. Dusk sneaks up. The village tea shop bustles with waves of laughter. Men and women chat over a cup of piping hot chai. It’s like a modern world Starbucks but only better. In Mawlynnong’s Starbucks, the roof is thatched. It has no walls.  Two wooden benches face each other, offering rest to hardworking villagers, or the occasional tea-loving outsider. I am one. A foreign outsider who loves tea. In India, chai, or tea, is a serious business. Communities come together for chai. Tea is cooked. Blended with spices. Its aromas tingle your nose buds." You can click the link in bio to read the full blog post.  Both Nathan and I are very passionate about community-based travel and #positivetravel experiences that benefit both the traveler and the host community.  When @betterplacestravel asked us to share one of our favorite positive travel stories, I wrote about Mawlynnong.  In 2003, the tiny village near the Bangladeshi border was named the cleanest village in Asia. Since then, Mawlynnong attracts a number of day visitors.  But if you stay a night or two, you'll see the liveliness of the village. Read the blog to see what I learnt from this small community.  #natnzin . . . #meghalayatrip #meghalayatourism #meghalaya #northeastindia #whereisnortheast #lonelyplanettraveller #discovernortheast #cherrapunji #sohra #shillong #indiatravel #india_gram #incredibleindia #naturephotographer #traveljournal #travelwriter #thisissustainable #theculturetrip #sustainableliving #sustainabletravel #mindfultravel #culturallyimmersivetravel #impacttravel
If you're walking into 2019 like... "What can I do to make a difference in this world?", you're not alone. In my last post, I spoke about staying in motion around our goals and dreams. Especially as it relates to taking care of the planet 🌎. ... The lovely @americatru asked me to share some of my favorite, small but powerful tips for taking empowered action towards sustainable living. So here are 3 of my favs! ... 1. Walk, bike, or ride share. Take public transportation when possible and really evaluate if you need to drive that car. 2. Use less disposable items- cultery, bags, containers, etc. 3. Take shorter showers and/ or time your showers- water is such a precious resource! Use it sparingly. ... These are just a few tips from me. Want to know more? DM and let's start a convo. Drop a comment and share some of your tips!
"Saving our planet, lifting people out of poverty, advancing economic growth... these are one and the same fight.

Few pieces of architecture can match the legendary Taj Mahal in beauty or history. Completed in 1653, the Taj Mahal was built by Shah Jahan in the memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal who died during childbirth. A true testament to his love for her. Today it stands as one of the worlds largest mausoleums and welcomes 7-8 million people a year. Recently there have been concerns about permanent damage to the building's facade due to pollution which has become a major issue in India. Have you visited the Taj Mahal?  #india #wsetravel #thisissustainable 📍 Taj Mahal 📷 photo credit: @_kmil Some things are too magnificent to be accurately represented in a photo. Without a doubt, the Taj Mahal falls into this category. I woke up early and was one of the first people onto the grounds this morning - running to the far corner to take this photo before more people arrived. Back in Delhi this evening, staying at the beautiful @imperialdelhi. Off to Udaipur in the morning 🌞 .

About 30 kilometres from Bikaner, you'll find Deshnok. This village is home to the famous Karni Mata Temple which houses over 10k rats! Spot a white one? Well, 2019 is gonna be the year for you!

“Put yourself in the way of beauty.” This quote from Cheryl Strayed rolled around in my head a lot last week in the Osa Peninsula with @lokaltravels.

One of my all time favorites song “Stairway to the heaven” Led Zeppelin. What’s yours?. . . . . Yangmingshan - Archaeological evidence shows that the Taipei basin was inhabited in prehistoric times. Between 10000 and 3000 B.C. on the seaward edge of the basin arose the Tapenkeng Culture, characterized by crude cord-marked pottery and advanced polished stone implements. People at that time lived by hunting, fishing and gathering, and also knew how to grow grain and certain fruits and vegetables for food After the Tapenkeng Culture, the area was home to the Yuanshan Culture and the Shihsanhang Culture. The Shihsanhang Culture, around the beginning of our era, was emerging from the stone age and is marked by the appearance of iron implements, glass beads, and pottery with geometrical designs. Prehistoric stone and pottery relics have been found in the Zhishanyan, Shipai, Beitou, Guantou, Tamsui and Jinshan areas around Yangmingshan National Park. The discovery of stone axes and arrowheads in the Chutzuhu area of Yangmingshan also shows man's presence here at least 2,000 years ago, although the sulfur fumes from nearby volcanoes probably made Yangmingshan a less than ideal place for human settlement and activity.

While many of our oceans have become polluted to disastrous levels, many lakes are able to stay crystal clear and protected. The primary reason is the fact lakes are significantly smaller and easier to patrol/protect. Which makes lakes the perfect place for nature lovers to explore a countries biodiversity. Places like Lachuá Lake, Guatemala are not only home to locals that haven't particularly assimilated to "city life", but also to flora and fauna that can give you an interesting look at a countries history. Where's your favourite lake? Do you prefer small or large bodies of water?  #guatemala #wsetravel #thisissustainable 📍 Laguna de Lachua - Alta Verapaz - Guatemala 📷 photo credit: @wichoaldana  #lagunalachua #altaverapaz #lake #visitguatemala #travelguatemala #exploreguatemala #centralamerica #modernoutdoors #lensbible #girlswhotravel #roamtheplanet #beautifuldestinations #sheisnotlost #travelblogger #mountainslovers #landscape_captures #landscapephotography #naturegram #discoverglobe #awesomepix #awesome_photographers #traveltheworld #adventuretime #amazing_shots #passionpassport #exploringtheglobe #theglobewanderer

When a friend visits Bangkok from New York, you obviously must have authentic Thai experiences - like going to an organic farm and watering coconuts the old school style!! Hey, it’s not as easy as it looks! Totally a great workout for your arms and I now appreciate coconut water on a whole new level!  Other fun farm experiences included picking butterfly pea (anchan) flowers and making our own drink with it along with the fabulous farm-to-table dinner and dessert made by our gracious host’s mother! Thank you @supansa_chaladcharoen and your family for your farm hospitality. Loved your beautiful traditional wooden house you designed & built for farm stays! A total treat of massaging my feet on dried coconut husks by walking over them! Such a beautiful experience only an hour outside of Bangkok!

Almsgiving, known as tak bat or sai bat, is a sacred Buddhist ceremony that occurs across many Southeast Asian countries every morning at dawn–rain or shine. There are over 150 temples in the tiny town so it’s one of the best places in the region to get to witness the beautiful procession.
The issue of palm oil became more commonly discussed of late due to UK supermarket chain @icelandfoods controversial ad - the one that got banned - featuring a lonely Rang-Tan 🐵 who had lost his mum and home due to deforestation, and so went and hid in a little girl's bedroom.  For their part, aside from raising awareness, Iceland's own brand food is now 100% palm oil free! This is a brilliant shift and statement by a British supermarket chain.  Beyond the palm oil industry - natural habitats (whether land or marine) face threat of destruction from humanity's direct and indirect actions.  As a result, the diverse and intricately suited species that call those habitats home face increased threat of vulnerability, endangerment, or extinction.  Today, we see species extinctions happening at 100-1000x the natural rate.  What can we do?  There are some easily accessible, common sense and practical ways that we can make a difference #fortheplanet #fortheanimals in our everyday lives.  Click link in bio to read my latest post on this 📝 including FOUR practical ways that you and I can combat habitat destruction and species extinction - through our ordinary everyday habits and decisions #intentionalliving  Image: @world_wildlife 💜
BEST FOOD 🍴 TOUR IN ROME 🇮🇹 . Years ago during one of my first trips to Rome, if not the first, I took a tour of one of the city’s markets with Eleonora. We ate, we wandered, we listened to her stories and eventually we took what we bought “home” to a luxury apartment that looked right out at the Colosseum. There in a kitchen flooded with light and different from any I’d been to at home in the USA, she supervised the cooking of a meal that was in hindsight quite normal for Italy but for me was revolutionary. Such simple ingredients became such a beautiful open door to another culture, another world, superior to anything I’d experienced before that was “Italian” back home in the states. As I continued to visit Italy over the years, that experience with Eleonora was always foremost in my mind as the standard by which other experiences in other parts of Italy were judged by. If Italians weren’t as effusive with praise over a mere piece of cheese as Eleonora is, I thought longingly back to that day with her and wished that she could be my guide to all of Italy. . Fast forward to this trip when Alison said we’d be doing a tour with @casamiaitalyfoodandwine and I was overjoyed to realize that would mean touring the city again with Eleonora Baldwin and now with Gina Tringali who I’d also met years ago. The four of us had so much fun and I learned so much that I just didn’t want it to ever end. It was like the first time all over again. We laughed and we cried and we moaned and swooned over cheese and bread and chocolate and olive oil and cured meats from sustainable vendors and small businesses. I don’t need a third time to know, there’s no one I’d want to experience Rome with more than her, and now with Gina who she runs Casa Mia with. It’s that simple. 🇮🇹 🍴 . . . . . #foodtourinrome #rometour #romaitalia #romaitaly #foodtourism #foodtours #passionpassport #iamatraveler #thisissustainable #touringrome #italia🇮🇹
Cascadas de Tamul Y Cueva del Agua, or Tamul Waterfall, is one of Mexico's most popular adventure activities. Standing at around 105 metres high, Tamul isn't Mexico's tallest waterfall. But what it lacks in size it makes up for in character. Located in San Luis Potosí, Tamul is extremely popular not only because of it's beauty but it's accessibility. You can reach the falls by way of a kayak from two different rivers. While this might be a bit of a well-beaten path, the waters can be a bit unpredictable at times. So we recommend hiring a local guide/tour company. Where is your favourite waterfall?  #mexico #wsetravel #thisissustainable 📍 Cascadas de Tamul Y Cueva del Agua, Tamasopo, San Luis Potosi, Mexico 📷 photo credit: @odron_larragaLa  #huastecapotosina #cascada #tamul #sanluispotosi #droneporn #dronestagram #méxicoenunafoto #landscapelover #visitmexico #exploremexico #travelblogger #nakedplanet #beautifuldestinations #earthoutdoors #globetrotter #adventureseeker #earthfocus #adventuretime #passionpassport #backpackerstory #travelmore #roamtheplanet #discoverearth #exploringtheglobe #theglobewanderer #livetravelchannel #welivetoexplore

When most travelers hear the phrase “sustainable tourism,” the knee jerk reaction is to think of far off, dreamy eco lodges. But green travel encompasses just one component of sustainability. In its simplest definition, sustainable tourism is travel that has a positive impact on the environment, community and economy of a destination. We like to envision sustainability as an umbrella for ANY type of travel, from rural to urban and budget to luxury. #thisissustainable

Nepal's Manaslu Circuit is the route that adventure travellers that KNOW adventure travel take. One of the Himalayas best all-around treks, you'll get to experience Nepal's beauty without the crowds of more popular routes. Located in the Gorkha District of Nepal, Manaslu blends untouched nature, centuries-old culture, and seclusion to present one of the last few "authentic" travel experiences. While this route might not be as difficult and popular as the Everest and Annapurna Base Camp experiences, Manaslu offers quite a few gems you definitely want to hire a guide for.

Species extinctions happen today somewhere between 100-1000x the natural rate.  For the Spix's Macaw (stunning image above) 2018 was the year that they became extinct in the wild, with only 50 of these beauties left alive in captivity.  I don't know about you, but I'm not okay with the needless destruction of wild habitats, and the grossly expedited extinctions of diverse and intricately formed creatures like these.  We can make 2019 different.  Our actions make a difference. Even our seemingly ordinary everyday decisions.  I want to make a difference #fortheplanet #fortheanimals and #fortheoceans in 2019.

Happy New Year from Bangkok!!!

Ayutthaya Historical Park offers a glimpse into a truly bygone era. Today you can see the impact of modernization and globalisation in places like Bangkok and Chiang Mai. But Ayutthaya, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, shows how the Siamese kingdom grew and thrived. While largely destroyed by the Burmese in the 18th century, what remains is a beautiful tapestry of ancient buildings and monuments that are worth a visit.

2018 was a huge success for me professionally. I wrote for dream publications and had my first print features. I was invited on my first tourism board sponsored press trips. I got to meet my long term ‘online’ friends IRL. 2018 was not the best for me personally-between heartbreak and horror of events around the world, I’ve felt drained and depleted more times that I’d like to admit. I’m holding onto the lessons and looking forward to what 2019 has in store for me. 📷: @thealtruistictraveller

Tucked away in the southwestern corner of Costa Rica, Osa Peninsula is the perfect off the beaten path destinations for eco-tourist and adventurers alike. Given its remote location, Osa Peninsula has grown to be relatively wild. It's currently home to Costa Rica's largest populations of Jaguars and Tapirs. While the biodiversity here is the primary attraction, we highly recommend you check out the former gold mining towns of Rancho Quemado and Dos Brazos for a look at the peninsulas industrial history. While initiatives to create new hiking trails through the region are underway, we recommend you only trek with an experienced guide.

Hoi An , Vietnam just might be one of Asia's most "authentic" cities. With an Old Town, or Ancient City as it's officially known, that's been preserved perfectly. Harkening back to Southeast Asian port cities from the 15th to 19th centuries. Located on the northern side of the Thu Bon River, Hoi An's Ancient City shows the effects of colonization, preservation, and determination. The secret to Hoi An's Ancient City remaining unchanged over the years is the simple fact that the French colonizers forgot about it. Emperor Gia Long, first Emperor of the Nguyen Dynasty, gave France exclusive trading rights to the port city of Da Nang. Which left Hoi An relatively destitute and forgotten. Meaning they were free to live as they always had. Today, Hoi An is a popular tourist destination with the Ancient City designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Where is your favourite ancient city?  #vietnam #wsetravel #thisissustainable 📍 Hoi An Ancient Town, Hội An, Quảng Nam, Vietnam 📷 photo credit: @_kmilHoi  An Ancient Town is an incredibly well-preserved southeast Asian trading port dating from the 15th to the 19th centuries. The town is made up of 1,107 timber frame buildings, with brick or wooden walls. The surviving wooden structures & street plan are original and intact and together present a traditional townscape of the 17th and 18th centuries. With the lanterns lit up a night, this place is extraordinary.

Sunsets of the pacific. Our little trip last week to Oceanside, CA #travelkindly #kindtraveler
When you travel somewhere new, here's how you can be a responsible traveler.  1. Don't take photos without consent. If you want to take a photo of the street food lady, ask her kindly. Imagine being clicked on the streets by a random stranger. You wouldn't like it. I wouldn't like it. It's not cool.  2. Learning a few key phrases of the local language so you could say hello and thank the kind strangers you meet.  3. Don't treat the third world countries like it's a human zoo and you are the rich, privileged visitor in it. This doesn't only apply to travelers from the first world but to travelers from the third world countries who are privileged enough to travel and visit other third world countries.  If a sign says, don't cross the bridge, please don't. If a sign says, don't swim, please don't. Don't exploit wildlife. They are not for your entertainment.  4. Be kind to people. Walking around a big market in #bangkok, I saw a few travelers being very loud and rude to local vendors. Just because you've money you aren't entitled to treat people in a bad way.  Talking about this photo: This photo is very close to my heart. I visited four beautiful temples in #chiangmai with @takemetour_thailand, three from the ancient Lanna Kingdom and the other was the oldest temple of the nearby Haripunchai Kingdom.  I'm writing my Chiang Mai blog post right now.
