One of the most desirable tourist activities to do in Asia is riding elephants. The thought of sitting aboard the largest land animal on earth is something that tourists all over the world utterly desire. The idea of riding on an elephant is exciting there’s no doubt, but unfortunately what we perceive as a calm, peaceful […]
I’m sure you’ve all heard of that one overly destructive oil called, Palm Oil. The one that’s sourced from the fruit of an Oil Palm. The one that is responsible for the death of over 50,000 Orangutans and 90% of their habitat. The one that impacts the lives of many children in remote locations due […]
Travel is such an important part in many peoples lives. But, travelling sustainably should be just as important too. Here is a list of the top 10 most visited cities of 2016 (according to Mastercard) and a few things you can do to ensure you travel them in a sustainable and eco-friendly manner. 10. Image […]
Sustainability is factored by a few different components; environmental, social and political. With the world evidently crumbling below our feet (if you believe in the clear signs of climate change that is), making conscious decisions to lower our carbon footprint is incredibly important. Today, the sustainability I’m focusing on is the environment – or being green if […]
Since the very beginning of this blog, I have covered topics ranging from destination overviews, travel inspiration, political opinions and various amounts of social commentary. Although, I recently read something from Oneika the Traveller that really made me question whether politics and travel (or any subjective opinions for that matter) should be spoken about on the same […]
Imagine a world where no one co-exists. Imagine a world where every person is far from willing to accept and tolerate other beliefs; where diversity is merely a thing of the past. Imagine a world where acceptance became a word with no meaning; where citizens would live without the slightest of harmony, because no beliefs […]
As 2016 came to an end, it was clear that so many were eagerly waiting to step out of its doors. Throughout the previous year there were many things that occurred that we really need to learn from. On a global scale, it was a year of heart ache for far too many. It’s important […]
Tomorrow is Christmas day; a day many perceive as the happiest day of the year. A celebration of Christ for those who believe, and a general celebration of life and love for billions of people around the world. It’s a special time of year for so many, where they are able to show gratitude and […]
There are some incredibly strict laws around the world that you may not know about. As a traveller, abiding to those laws and respecting the countries culture is essential. There will always be regulations, beliefs and perhaps people that you may not agree with on your global adventures, but they may also be the things […]
Islamophobia is something that has crossed my mind over the last year. Before then, the concept of others fearing a religion was not as openly discussed. I’m sure you’ve all witnessed some sort of hate against Islam; whether that be a derogatory comment, a hate crime or a disheartening news story.. Today it’s become something […]
After the recent US presidential election, of whom has no interest or belief in climate change, I can’t help but feel as though the impacts of climate change need to be drilled in to our heads, just a little bit more. Everyone has issues they need to deal with, I totally understand. Not everyone wants […]
I’m sure you already know that global warming is here.. we all know that. But have you ever thought about what it is really doing to our planet? I witnessed the effects of climate change on my trip in Alaska and it has made me more concerned than ever before. I – and I’m sure […]
Palm Oil Plantations are a controversial issue so well known in today’s society. I was aware of the global problem before my trip to Borneo, but after witnessing the destruction first hand, my thoughts have been influenced more than ever. Palm Oil is the most consumed vegetable oil across the world. It is used in […]
A historic moment was made in this years Rio Olympics that we never knew was coming.. A new team was born into the long line of talented athletes that has made us all (well me atleast) stop and think. My heart was smiling when I heard of the new Refugee Olympic Team, it really was. But […]
Animal testing is a problem that I would say 99% of the population has contributed to in one way or another. Every year, more than 100 million animals die in torterous chemical, drug, food, and cosmetics tests around the world. Today, I went through my makeup/beauty collection and disposed/donated every product that was tested on animals. There […]
Ever since I started travelling, I have noticed the influence that media has on the places you visit and the way that you travel. More specifically, the destinations. Todays media will always show us the things in foreign countries that we may not want to see, but know in our hearts that we should. We […]
