Why I still fly and how to make it less terrible for the planet

I consider myself en Environmentalist. I eat vegan, don’t own a car, buy second hand fashion and consume mostly local and organic food. But I fly. Several times a year, to go on holidays, see my family or discover a new country, I pack my bags, head to the airport and hop on a (often long-distance) flight.

Yet, flying has a HUGE impact on the planet. So why do I still fly and what’s there to do to reduce the environmental impacts of flying around the world?

A Lisbon guide for conscious travelers

One of my main resolution for 2018 is to discover and travel more (I know, plane emissions and i’ll make a post about what you can do about that, promise !) so I thought it’d be perfectly in the theme to write the first post of the year about my latest escapade to… Lisbon ! We spent Christmas there with the family and while a lot was closed due to the holidays, we still managed to discover some little gems and feel the incredible vibe of this sunny city.

So I wrote a little list of the neighborhoods, restaurants and places we discovered while there in case that helps someone organizing their trip! :)

London city trip conscious guide

I’ve recently escaped to London for a much needed city trip with the boyfriend. I was thrilled as London is a place I spent quite some time when I was younger (family friends lived there and I would go for the summer) and always have had a huge soft spot for. The nature, the energy, the British way of thinking and the openness of its inhabitants have made it a place I hope to be able to live in someday.

 I researched for quite a long time before my stay so I though I’d share the places I’ve been to and my favorites in case someone is going soon and is looking to spend a conscious week end! However, since 3 days is super short and we were not able/visit as much as we wanted to, I’ve also listed at the bottom some recommendations that were made to me but that I didn’t get to see. Just in case ;)
