#ECOTRAVEL: the difference between a traveler and a tourist


The tour «all inclusive» is not that fun as it used to be. For some reasons it’s much more interesting to travel like a «savage»: buy tickets to a random point on the planet and go camping or whatever at your own risk.

The desire to make a vacation unforgettable without damaging the environment caused the emergence of the term “ecotraveling”. This kind of tourism is attractive for its unpredictable twists and turns, and all because of the fact that the main thing in this case is to keep inseparable the tandem «man-nature».

Ecotraveling is a sustainable type of journey. Gisele and Cody — couple which prefers this type of tourism. They call themselves «biophiles» — people who really care about the environment and animals. Both tattooed vegans, the couple chooses to travel to places where they will be able to help animals and take care of them if they are in trouble.

“This photo captured by Cody is not an incredible moment between a baby elephant and I. This is the result of self serving humans that decide they are going to ride that elephant during their Thailand vacation, or attend the elephant show, or go to the circus. This phenomenal animal is now gone. Immediately after he was born, his mother tried to kill him, but his «owners» dragged him away before she could stomp on him. The first baby was’t so lucky. It is thought that after all of the abuses she suffered through in her life, she did not want her children to also endure lifelong torture, and an existence in chains. So she tried to end his life. We tried to save him, but we failed. We are failing all of our animal brethren. Animals are NOT property. Don’t let the truth offend you. Let the truth change you”.
