Ethical Travel

My mission is to encourage ETHICAL TRAVEL by giving back to the local communities & practice animal cruelty-free tourism.

My passions are for ETHICAL TRAVELING and ADVENTURE.

My focus is to explore each place as a local, staying in common neighborhood, sit with locals and share a meal while hearing to their stories and observing their life style.

As a World Traveler, I believe that my responsibility is based on treat each place I visit with respect to the culture, religion, customs and to give back to the local communities, not participating on any source of animal cruelty, and to help protect our Planet for our future generations.

We can have a great impact on the Planet in a positive way, by making good choices while on the road - Sometimes it’s hard to know what’s a good choice though, so I am here to share some stories with you.
