P.S. My keys to sustainable travels: acknowledge that your trip might not go as planned | back up important files before and during travel | bring a portable multi-cooker, coffee/tea press, food containers, utensils, water bottle, water heater, and clothesline rope | bring extra medicines and prescription | bring souvenirs from home for friends you’ll meet along the way | get a local sim card | get travel insurance | have an extra card to be used only for emergencies | learn the language if you deem it necessary | listen to your gut | only bring stuff that you can carry on your own | only go for local food that’s vouched for being clean and safe | record and stay on top of your expenses | stay in accommodations where cooking is allowed | take public transportation | treat everyone and yourself with kindness and respect, as always |treat guidebooks as guides; don’t get boxed by them | visit local cafés | walk as much as you can | wake up early | when faced with difficult decisions, ask yourself why ❤
