    Its so heart warming to see more and more awareness spreading around sustainable travel. This is got to be the way to travel because if we don’t change our mindset and switch to sustainable travel now. Then tomorrow we won’t have these beautiful destinations to visit.

    I love this! “Then in time, let the travel itself change you.” That’ so true! I’ve been experiencing this myself. I travel a lot more consciously also in terms of what type of attractions I choose. I don’t do animal shows, zoos, and stuff like that.

      That’s right! I think for a lot of travellers who are ready, the informational stuff will appeal and they will act on it. But before they’re ready, it will turn them off. Nobody likes to be preached at. It’s something I learned at work, because I have to advocate environmental responsibility to business people. :/

      Many scientists think minds are changed by correct, specific, precise information. It is not. Minds are changed by desire for it. The head does not change unless the heart changes first. The most lasting changes of mind are those that you feel you did on your own. :) I’m myself working hard to change the way I communicate, to suit how people actually change.
