Today we are aware that, getting off the tree, getting off the tree house, we head again towards civilization, towards those places where nature has necessarily had to leave room to manpower.

Sardinia trip on a sailing boat 163 votes

The spectacle of a land seen from the sea, the spectacle of the sea lived onboard the Feeling.

I probably cannot describe thoughts remotely close to reality, I won't be able to describe in details what these fifteen days on a sailing boat around my land, Sardinia, have meant to me.

World of Festivals

Prat?tyasamutp?da. Does that word say anything to you? If not, that's perfectly understandable, because that word is in Sanskrit. The meaning of this word is one of the most cardinal principle of Buddhism, and as I believe it is also the real essence of ecotourism. In English, Prat?tyasamutp?da means "Dependent Origination" - or in words that us mortals can understand, you are a part of everything and everything is a part of you. So basically all that you are and all of the actions you take in your life has an impact on the world and the people in it.

Apero with perspectives

There are many ways to enjoy an apero with your friends. One of the best ones I experienced until today was in the southern hemisphere springtime, as we were visiting our friend and bride-to-be in New Zealand. If you have the chance one day to go to New Zealand, take the time to visit the Bay of Islands in the Northern part of the North Island. There, hundreds of islands are creating a unique and protected environment for many species such as dolphins and kiwis.

A Garden Lady in India's Cold Mountain Desert.

I sit by a Stupa on an elevation above the shore of the Spiti River, shielding myself from the sun. It'll be a good fifteen minutes before the ball of fire sinks behind the mountain range and relieves human skins. Such penetrating sunrays would make a great premise for a sunscreen advert, I muse.

Short trip to nowhere: Cycling from London to Frankfurt with more brawn then brain

Summer had started 2 weeks earlier, and I had promised myself not to spend another season locked up in an office. So I finally hedged my bets, quit my 9 to 5 job working as a trailer editor, and a day later embarked on a journey to cycle from London to Frankfurt.

I had prepared a little, in hindsight way too little, but I had bought a large travellers back pack, and my house mates had equipped me with a sleeping bag, matts, camping stoves and whatever else they could scrape together.

EcoTourism in New Zealand - The Great Walks

What do you picture when you hear the words New Zealand? For me, I picture dramatic landscapes. Mountains, plains, and coast lines - a land where it doesn't take very much effort to escape the rat race. New Zealand has definitely lived up to my expectations in that regard. New Zealanders seem to really care about the preservation of their unique landscape.

Go be a Gobi Explorer

Taming the Gobi Desert has never been more exciting and accessible. Picture yourself stepping off a flight across the Pacific and onto Mongolian soil. Far beyond the beaten path, this vast country offers everything a true world-traveler could hope to find, and the most diverse of climates, wildlife, and outdoor activities that could possibly be fit into a single country. Yet even in such a remote corner of the world, amenities abound with the region's premier outfitters, Nomadic Expeditions.

Rio de Janeiro: Rocinha

I have been there in 2006, but I will never forget it.Rocinha is one of the biggest 'favelas' in South America. It counts up to 200.000 inhabitants in the size of a few soccer fields. People live very near to each other, even though the reputation of the place makes it a hard neighourhood to live in. Despite this, some amazing kids have worked to improve cultural awareness and a bit of sensibility.
