Mother Earth Hosts Our Travels

As conscious traveling Paupers we must always be concerned about our dear Mother Earth. if​ you​ think about it,​ you​ travel across her face,​ and She is​ the​ host to​ your journey; without Her we could not find the​ unfolding adventures that attract and feed our souls.

I have found some valuable resources for us to​ use and publisize,​ all of​ which are dedicated to​ responsible travel and care of​ our environment.

International Ecotourism Society

Lonely Planet Code Green: Trips of​ a​ Lifetime That Won't Cost the​ Earth
by Kelly Lorimer- Lonely pLanet Publications

The first "green travel" book to​ be published by Lonely Planet includes dozens of​ "responsible travel experiences" and provides traveler information on​ responsible and eco-travel. Lonely Planet also runs a​ discussion board on​ responsible travel at​ http://thorntree.lonelyplanet.com
