In the hustle and bustle of the 21st century, often the only thing that can give us an escape from the daily stress is leaving everything behind, even if for a short while.
Traveling can provide you with a much-needed stress relief if you do it right. You will also gain memories of a lifetime no money can buy. With travel so widely available these days, we start to realize how big the world is and just how many beautiful places that are well worth seeing and experiencing first-hand.
This, however, also makes choosing your destination infinitely more difficult. If there is one thing that’s certain, we have to keep Mother Earth in mind too when indulging in our travels and make sure we are not doing any damage to the environment along the way.
To help you in this, here are some amazing eco-friendly destinations from all around the world. These 5 places will revive both your body and mind – all that’s left for you to do is pick away!
There is a multitude of reasons to visit the beautiful country of Thailand. It has incredible beaches, lush nature, picturesque rice fields and, last but not least, many yoga resorts that put mindfulness and well-being on top of their priority list.
Choosing a retreat nestled in the forests provides a kind of tranquility you wouldn’t think possible. Also, there are many eco-friendly accommodation options to choose from to reduce your footprint as much as possible.
Think about doing a full-fledged technology detox by putting your phone away (or at least on airplane mode), and interacting with the locals instead. It can make your travels much more mindful, and you will come back refreshed and well-rested!
Another fantastic place where you can enjoy unspoiled nature and take in stunning sights is Tasmania.
Australia’s smallest state is the perfect natural getaway considering almost half of its area is protected region. Impressive mountains, lush forests and beautiful seascapes await if you decide to go on a walking holiday and explore nature instead of concrete jungles.
Guided tours in Tasmania will ensure that you don’t miss out on any of the must-see sights such as the Three Capes, the beautiful Bay of Fires, or the Wineglass Bay and the Hazards Mountains on the Freycinet peninsula.
Hiking is always an excellent way to unwind and free your thoughts. Many pack-free options will make the entire experience more comfortable.
