Travel Smarter Without Plastic Bottle

By Laeti, 11/13/2014 - 05:47

When planning a green holiday, we are thinking about checking the eco-credentials of the lodge, booking a local guide or off-setting our air miles. Additionally a very simple little step towards a more sustainable holiday is to avoid using plastic bottles: Get a stainless steel or thermos bottle and when travelling in areas where water is not drinkable, you can treat your own water with a steripen or purifying tablets. This simple action means a lot to the environment.

Little know about this incredible travel story, it is telling us about how a little adventure can turn into a lifestyle.

In 1989 a couple from Germany, Christine and Gunther Holtlorf, decided to go on a road trip to Africa. They set off with their new Mercedes G Wagen, a sturdy 4-wheel drive, for what was to become a 26-year long trip covering over 885000km and 177 countries.
