Of course not only at home, but also on the road and while you travel. We asked ourselves what Mona and Alex from betterworldtravellers think about the topic and how they try to implement sustainable travel. The two have given up everything in Germany in September 2020 and now want to travel around the world in their camper Van for the next 10 years. They are living the ecotourism – but see for yourself!

  • Digital Detox – your vacation full of mindfullness
    4 hours and 37 minutes– …that’s not the time I spend with friends, working, playing sports, or doing household chores. This is the time I spend on my phone most of the day. Sometimes it works out with less time, thanks to time locks for some apps. One day I also went completely cell phone free. 24 hours without a cell phone -yay-, but still a real challenge, you feel kind of empty and bored. These withdrawal symptoms speak for themselves.
  • Traveling with socialbnb – a Guide for travelers
    Creating sustainable added value with a trip – sounds great, doesn’t it? With an overnight stay in a socialbnb, that’s exactly what becomes possible. However, for our goal of creating sustainable tourism that benefits everyone, the behavior of travelers is also important. Since the socialbnb concept is still quite new, some things have to be taken into account so that the stay creates added value for all involved.

The endless cypresses string together along the strait driveway and lead me to a gate.

  • TRAVEL NEW ZEALAND: IN TIMES OF CORONA
    Travelling in times of Corona is difficult. On the one hand bad for your own vacation planning, on the other hand good for the environment. The exotic wanderlust dreams seem even more distant than before.
