When I made the decision not to fly any more, I had a $500 flight voucher I had yet to use. I ripped it up.
My life’s goal has always been to go to and see as much of what the world has to offer as possible, so it was a hard decision to give up flying as it makes travel a bit more time consuming and complex. In the end though I’ve always enjoyed some of the slower over-land styles of transportation because of the things you pick up and see.
You know what they say, it’s not the destination but the journey.
I work in conservation, planning and completing projects on public lands to reduce impact and preserve landmarks and ecosystems.
