Travelling has been a huge part of my life always, as a child of immigrants we often returned to the “old country.” That lead to a love of culture and travel and I’ve been privileged to see many beautiful places.
Being a climate activist I’m feeling out of alignment with my travelling life. Paying carbon credits eased my conscience for a while, but I can’t continue to pretend that flying doesn’t matter. I’ve pledged to stop flying but I’m not sure how I’ll deal with the eventual death of my 84 year old mom and my brother, who are in poor health and live overseas.
I guess I’ll decide when the time comes… in the meantime I’m enjoying discovering many of the beautiful places in my own country that I can visit by train!
