Hiking trips will give you a chance to explore the beauty of the countryside and see some of the wonders of life, both good and bad.

Although the lockdown is gradually easing, the coronavirus remains in circulation and until there is a vaccine it will likely have some impact on our lives. The most obvious impact is the need for us to avoid face-to-face and indirect (touching surfaces) contact with people outside our household or allowed bubble. Motorhomes are self-contained units which naturally allow this kind of separation.

When traveling, doing things spontaneously is part of the journey & these things tend to be some of the most memorable. Sometimes you decide to do these things, other times these things are decided for you. This was one of the times when things were completely out of my control.

Support Local Businesses, but Who Gets to be the Local?

Responsible Tourism, responsible traveler, Tourist Money, travel

Gita Natalia

According to the Cambridge Dictionary, local as an adjective means “from, existing in, serving, or responsible for a smallarea, especially of a country

If you travel to another country and you have this passion to be an impactful traveler, the simplest thing you can do is track where your tourist money goes to avoid what is called the ‘Tourism Leakage’. It simply means that a huge chunk of your tourist dollar leaves the country to where you travel instead of doing its magic to the locals. According to the United Nations Environment Programme, 70% of tourist money in Thailand ended up leaving the country. That is also 80% of the Caribbean’s and 40% of India’s tourist money that left their countries instead of contributing to the local economy.

Why does this happen? World Travel & Tourism Council stated that the multinational company is mostly responsible for…

Compass N' Diaries

Traveling solo can be one of the most exciting and eye-opening experiences. It offers ample opportunities for self-reflection, self-reliance, growth and boundless freedom.

It can also be horrible and tiresome, especially if you’ve never traveled solo before. And also attached to it, is the social stigma.

Solo travelers are actually seen as Introverts or reticent people who are wanderers. Though 2019 did brought in a wave of people traveling solo. So much so that businesses and places now offer special crafted packages for Solo travelers.

Oh GOODNESS Graceious

I have met many well travelled blithering idiots.

The kind that think your life is worth much less if you didn’t move to America for a summer, travel the Asias with a caboodle of college buddies. If you didn’t enlighten yourself mid train ride across Western Europe, country by country growing ever wiser. The kind of folk that did will remind you with an insightful quote under a picture of their arse on a beach in Australia that Life is a book, and if you don’t travel, you read only one chapter. And to be honest, that’s simply untrue.

Your currency is not worth less if you are happy where you are, or unhappy where you are right now but can’t yet manage to get out of there. Screw the pressure to fuck off to Canada for a year. The pressure to go far, for a long time. The pressure…
