Take a walk through the grounds of @reservadoibitipoca and wonder at the magnificent land art. Made out of recyclable materials, these statues are works of art in nature. What do you think the message they are sending is? #regenerativeresorts
How cool and beautiful are these?!
Made from plastic packaging, such as instant noodles, these baskets are created by the wonderful people at Hope Center in Huế, Vietnam.
The Hope Center is a fantastic organisation that provides training and work opportunities to disabled and disadvantage people living between Hue and the Laos border. As well as teaching skills such as tailoring, they also produce products like these woven baskets and scarfs (amongst others).
We were greeted by such warm and welcoming people here. If you’re in Huế, make sure you give it a visit! They also do handicraft courses too.
Our vegetarian sandwich comes served on our fresh baked homemade focaccia bread and we fill it with zucchini, eggplant, purple onion, tomato, mushrooms,
cheddar cheese and pesto accompanied with a garden salad. @greentiquehotels

Campfires, s’mores & good conversation... It’s been awesome meeting our first treehouse guests at our new @boltfarmtreehouse location in Charleston, SC and hearing firsthand how much our treehouse experience lifts the spirit. The first treehouse I built with my dad is now the #1 Airbnb in SC. Due to high demand and a 4-6 month waiting list, @toribolt and I build 4 more luxury treehouses in Charleston to make this awesome experience more accessible. The only hurdle we’ve run into is a new short-term rental regulation limiting us to selling only 72 nights of reservations for 2019. So, we have plenty of availability but only a limited quantity we can sell. We’re going to sell them all on our website (Link in bio) this Saturday (December 15th) at 12 noon EST. If you want to stay here in 2019, this is your chance! #boltfarmtreehouse#theWILDFLOWERtreehouse
The Slovenians like to point out that theirs is the only country with the word LOVE in its name. Its astonishing green forests, wildflower-studded alpine meadows of the Julian Alps, and its medieval villages and castles nestled in storybook valleys bejeweled by glistening turquoise rivers make this incredible country a hiker’s paradise! #hiking#trekking#hikingadventures#julianalps#hikeeurope#roamtheplanet

Shushtar Historical Hydraulic System, is an island city from the Sassanid era with a complex irrigation system.
Parts of the irrigation system are said to originally date to the time of Darius the Great, an Achaemenian king of Iran (Father of Persia). It partly consists of a pair of primary diversion canals in the Karun river, one of which is still in use today. It delivers water to the Shushtar city via a route of supplying tunnels. The area includes Salasel Castel, which is the axis for operation of the hydraulic system. It also consists of a tower for water level measurement, along with bridges, dams, mills, and basins.
This beautiful system has also attracted the attention of many famous travel writers throughout history, for example: Famous French archaeologist Jane Dieulafoy has been named this place as the largest industrial complex before the Industrial Revolution.
It was registered on UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites in 2009 and is Iran's 10th cultural heritage site to be registered on the United Nations' list. And has been referred to as "a masterpiece of creative genius" by UNESCO.
Now, consider how civilized Iranians used the waters of their country.

◇ This girl quit flying! ◇
#Traveling has always been a privilege. There were boats crossing the oceans and trains long before there were flights.

Today the cost of air travel is considerably cheaper, roughly half what it was in 2000. You can fly all over Europe on a budget and now even do a round trip Toronto-Vancouver with a low cost company for around $200 😱 (that's very cheap for Canada, as it has always been known for it's notoriously high prices on local flights). Yes, we are definitely very lucky because this allows us to see our friends and family more frequently. With the rise of social media and especially Instagram in the past 7 years or so, there's been lots of inspiring travel content online. Looks like everyone was hit with a #travel bug, including myself. 👅 I think it's amazing that people started getting out of their comfort zones to see places, don't get me wrong... However, taking 5+ flights a month and inspiring others to do the same is not good for the environment.
In the past year or so I've started noticing that more and more people are trying to reduce the amount of flights they take, offset their carbon footprint with various organizations or quit flying and find alternative ways to travel. To be honest, I'm quite inspired by this new idea! 💚 I don't think I'll ever be able to quit flying completely, but I #love seeing and learning from people who are traveling from Alaska to Argentina in their vans or school busses, choosing trains to cross Canada or boats to cross the Atlantic. I recently came across a travel influencer @earthwanderess who quit flying about 10 months ago. 👍 She is a huge motivator!
Evelina: "I sat down, wrote all the plane trips I’ve done the last 5 years. We need to live a life with a carbon emissions of maximum 1,5 - 2 tons of CO2 per person and year. And that includes food, electricity, transportation, water, shopping etc. So how much CO2 did my flights release in the last 5 years? 37,52 TONS That’s an average of 7,5 tons/year for me. DO YOU #FLY ? Do you know HOW BIG your CO2 emission is? You can go to
