As they say, it’s about the journey.
Travelling is not just about arriving safely to your destination. Travelling is also not just about having fun in your destination. Travelling is even not just about leaving amicably from your destination.
It’s about making the most out of what you saw on the way to your destination. It’s also about doing the best you can while in your destination. It’s even about making the most out of what you experienced on the way back from your destination.
The best part? You can do all these and more via eco-conscious travelling.
For those unfamiliar with it, as well as for those who heard about it but don’t have any concrete idea about it just yet, here’s what it entails:
Eco-conscious travelling is being patient.
Just like waiting for a fish to be caught via a good rod, eco-conscious travelling is being patient – not just with yourself as you slowly take what’s right in front of you, but also with those around you as you slowly realize what’s right in front of you. You also need to be patient, especially in unexpected situations like rental cars breaking down while you’re on the road. You even need to be patient, especially in unsafe circumstances like high mountains closing down while you’re on the peak.
Eco-conscious travelling is being determined and wise.
Just like a bird flying over the horizon no matter what time of the day it is and no matter what season of the month it is, eco-conscious travelling is being determined, not just when it comes to seeing every attraction in a place, but also when it comes to experiencing every activity in a place; and being wise, not just when it comes to learning more about a place’s rich history, but also when it comes to knowing more about a place’s vibrant culture.
A tip? See birds magnificently flying over the horizon no matter what time of the day it is and no matter what season of the month it is via a good pair of binoculars, which you can find at https://opticsmag.com/best-compact-binoculars.
Eco-conscious travelling is being self-disciplined.
And by this, it means being sensitive enough to know the right thing to do before leaving your destination. It means cleaning up as you go, so you can raise more awareness on the importance of saving the environment – even in small ways.
