The more I travel, the more I realize I have so much more of the world to see, taste and experience... which led me to the sad realization that I can't possibly be in all the places I want to be and remain current. I have enlisted trusted professionals in the industry with insider knowledge and unique views on all angles of sustainable travel. We strive to bring you the most inspiring stories of people and places giving back and making a difference, and just plain best of the best when it comes to having a positive impact on our planet.
