“Our task must be to free ourselves… by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures
and the whole of nature and its beauty.” –Albert Einstein
Whether you call it nature travel, sustainable travel or responsible ecotourism, there’s something incredibly potent, powerful, and cleansing about getting away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The air smells sweeter, the sun burns brighter, the colors seem more vivid, and time almost seems to stand still. Whether we’re hiking, kayaking, watching wildlife or just enjoying a quiet picnic, there’s something about unspoiled nature that simply soothes our soul.
With Earth Day coming up April 22, people tend to start thinking and talking about nature conservation more and more at this time of year. But our goal is to encourage people to embrace the beauty of nature and wildlife all year around. So when some of our blogging friends discussed having a monthly themed blog carnival, we immediately volunteered to host a Nature Travel round-up this month to draw more attention to the joys of ecotourism.
So how does it work? Well, if you’re a reader, click on some of the links below to discover some great bloggers writing about some of their favorite Nature Travel experiences, which will hopefully inspire your future adventures. And if you’re a blogger with a Nature Travel story of your own to share, just follow these simple steps:
