I feel like it’s been FOREVER since I’ve written a new blog post. I’ve just been so busy making my 101 ways to Make Your Travels Greener, and tabling at the Kentucky Green Living Fair (not to mention all the trips I’m working on for clients!).
Having to stay in a hotel before the KY Green Living Fair gave me a rude awakening. As much as I would have liked to have stayed at an amazing organic/sustainable lodging, the options just weren’t there. Sometimes we don’t get the opportunity to choose the most sustainable option. So this blog post helps you make your hotel stays sustainable, even when you don’t get to choose an off-the-grid Xanadu.
If you think Alaska, you probably think cruise. And it’s no wonder--Alaskan cruises are the most popular way to visit the Last Frontier. But if you’ve never been on an Alaskan cruise before, you may be wondering just how to choose a cruise. To help you narrow your choices down a little bit, here are 5 Can’t Miss Alaskan Ports (from south to north).
Spring Break is an important time for us to collect ourselves and recharge. Some of us get a week, some of us get two (and some of us can do whatever we want because we work for ourselves from home!), but however long we need that time to recharge. It’s easy for us to default and pick the usual destination to travel to because it can be too hectic to plan. But typical Spring Break destinations aren’t always treating the environment and locals with the respect they deserve.
So this year make your Spring Break more sustainable by traveling to one of these fantastic sustainable destinations!
By now you absolutely know the story of my love affair with Fathom. But just a refresher:
I learned about Fathom and their social impact cruises, fell in love; went on one of their cruises, fell even more in love; dedicated myself to specializing in Fathom. And then boom: Fathom stops sailing. Perhaps they were a bit too ambitious, or perhaps marketing wasn’t that great, but at any rate my heart was broken.
But now Fathom has returned in partnership with Princess Cruises. As of this posting date, Fathom is currently on a cruise in the Caribbean and has two more scheduled for March 11 and May 26. So, if you’ve missed the first one of the year, you have two more opportunities.
And here’s why you should travel with them:
Happy New Year! (I can say that because it’s still the first half of January.)
I, for one, am extremely happy to greet a new year. New years give us the opportunity to refresh and reevaluate; for example: my bucket list. Years ago I made a list called “100 Things to Do before I Die.” But I change so much year-to-year that I no longer care about a fourth of the list.
And like that list, my travel wishes change year to year as I learn more and more about the world! This blog post will share with you my top 5 travel wishes for 2018! I’d love to hear all about yours in the comments :)
