  1. I love your suggestions! It’s such a big issue now. We’re in the golden age of travel and everyone’s doing it. We have a responsibility to be a gentle impact on where we’re going.

  2. What an interesting post! Conscious means to me the same as you wrote: Slow travel, learn the language and try to fit in by eating local and go off the beaten path ☺️

  3. Great post! I agree with all of your tips. I think it is a minimum to learn how to say basic words and phrases in the local language when travelling. Train and bus travel is my favourite type of travel. I would much rather take a train or bus than a flight. They are so much more convenient, comfortable, and better for the environment. Plus you get to see the amazing scenery from your window the entire way.

  4. I love this post. Makes me wish everyone would be more conscious while traveling.
    Exploring tue world might be amazing, but we have to ensure that future generations will be able to do the same.

  5. So much of what people are out there doing today seems to be for the ‘gram, or to keep up with the Joneses, or to tick something off some list or another. I appreciate the post to do things in a more meaningful way!

  6. I love this. Such great points. I completely agree about the language. I won’t go anywhere without at least learning hello and thank you. I did the countries in a week last month and still learned at least a couple words in each language and asked locals for help with pronunciation so I could make sure I was confident with what I was saying

  7. I love this post, Megan! It’s an ever more important issue. I feel like I do most of these without thinking about them, but equally I’m sure there is a lot more I could do. But I am incredulous at how some people treat our world, especially things like stomping through sunflower or tulip fields just for a photo. For something that doesn’t even MATTER. It’s awful. We’ve become so self-obsessed we’ve forgotten to think about anything else. Thank you for sharing this!

    1. I agree, most of these are so simple and second nature to most, but can make a huge impact. Destroying flower fields, etc just for the “gram” is what frustrates me the most too! Thank you for taking the time to read and respond!
