Welcome to the very first ALL DIGITAL edition of Responsible Traveller…

What fun its been putting this edition together… great visuals, added audio and video footage where appropriate, easy sharing options via social media and best of all, not a single tree had to be cut down to do it!  

I love travel… anything and everything about travel. 

Reading about other people’s adventures and going on my own… down the road, across the country or miles away. It doesn’t matter; I just love travel – always have and no doubt, always will. But best part of travelling for me is the amazing people I get to meet along the way. Being able to interact with locals, walk the streets like a local, eat local food and then have the privilege of telling stories about it… with pen (keyboard) and camera.

Each destination has a different story to tell. Some evocatively beautiful, others luxurious and seemingly decadent, and some just touch your heart and fill your soul with joy. People stories. Stories about the unsung heroes of conservation, great environmental initiatives and inspiring communities. People stories… it always comes down to the people.

Not just the incredible wildlife, awe-inspiring landscapes, exhilarating adventures and mouth-watering cuisine – be it street food or fine dining, it’s the wonderful people you meet along the way.

Once again from a responsible tourism point of view, remember that  not all establishments and activities will tick all the boxes – disappointing I know, but all the more reason as the ‘traveller’ to travel with care, and be mindful of the impact that you’re making on a destination. Be the kind of traveller who takes the time to connect with all aspects of  the destination – you’ll be amazed at how much more meaningful your visit will be, so much so that you will be planning your return visit before you’ve even left.

Enjoy the read… and be the difference.
