Travel has been a big part of my life. I have seen, over the years, how tourism can develop a country, yet not always responsibly and sustainably. I became more aware of the negative effects of tourism when I travelled solo across Asia in 2013. Later, as I settled in Nepal the desire for a more responsible tourism was growing. I met up with responsible traveller Erin Courtney Green to give us some tips on how we, as travellers, can have a positive impact – making our trip more enriching for us and the people and country we visit. Erin, the author of this post, gives us insight into how to travel more responsibly with tips and background on situations you may face.
