Couldn't praise enough Ammachchi/Hell Bojun Hal throughout the island. From authentic, healthy Sri Lankan food for really affordable rates to helping women entrepreneurs, there's so much to love about this concept.

One of the lovely ladies I talked to in #Colombo has her own food brand now. She sells sweets. And another one in Jaffna told me how this concept helped her to be financially stable and look after her kids. She lost her husband during the war, and #Jaffna market is notorious, primarily a man's world. She was unable to start her stall inside the market because of the harassment she faced.

We've so many stories about these hardworking ladies at Ammachchi/Hell Bojun. Will be writing a post soon (see: next year). #natnzin

Well that's a wrap. An incredible 10 days in the Himalayas with responsible travel company @fernwehfairtravel .

The income generated from this tour has supported local schools, womens development programs and conservation projects. If that's what travel was all about all over the world then imagine the difference we could make? 🌎 Blog posts to come soon so follow on at www.thealtruistictraveller.com (link in bio) .

This is very last minute, but I think we’re going to squeeze in Cambodia before Bangladesh. I will need a breather before plunging into THAT project. What should a sustainable travel and fashion enthusiast do for a week in Cambodia? Keep in mind we are mountain people more than beach people and, again, limited time! ⛰ thank you 💕

La Paz, Mexico is one of Mexico's hottest destinations and just might be it's most international. With a turbulent history with foreign powers, La Paz has transformed itself into a welcoming place for tourists to come and explore. La Paz is an excellent destination for water lovers and those interested in Mexico's biodiversity. In recent years La Paz has become a hub for marine biologists studying whales, sea lions, turtles, and stingrays. But if you're just looking to relax, Playa Balandra should be high on your list.

It’s been a long time since I’ve traveled to a place that really transformed me the way that Cuba has.
.
.
.
Being forced to mostly disconnect was the greatest blessing in disguise. I didn’t have to think about posting on social media or who to tag. I didn’t need to check my email just in case anything important came in or even to keep up with my inbox. I didn’t passively scroll through Facebook or Instagram just because I had some down time. .
.
.
Instead, I really got to know the other inspiring women on this trip, and explore a place forgotten by many. I was forced to talk to people to ask for directions or call a taxi, and on top of that, practice my Spanish.
.
.
.
In the end, Cuba reminded me of the importance of those connections and what it really means to get to know a place. It forced me to take better notes, to slow down and listen more, and even to take more time to read during down time versus checking my phone.
.
.
.
I’ve never immersed myself in a destination in such a short period of time the way I did in Cuba. Forget everything you’ve seen in the media and anything you think you know about Cuba. Start from scratch. Ignite your curiosity and take the time to get to know Cuba for yourself. Cubans are open and ready for your business. Now is an incredibly important time to be breaking barriers down instead of building them up. The people of Cuba are ready for you!
.
.
.
Big thanks to @cuba_connect for leading this trip and for @sheswanderful for bringing this amazing group of women together!

The first stop on our tour is Delhi, where we will visit a non-profit cut + sew factory. After taking a tour of the facility our travelers will get to meet some of the ladies, ask questions, and learn about their stories. This is what fair trade is all about!

A little bit of room can make a huge impact! So thankful for the opportunity to give back through @packforapurpose

Guatemala may not be the first country that comes to mind when you think of leaders in sustainability but there is an epic movement happening at the local level. Communities are mobilizing to make a change ✨
.
For sustainable happenings in Guatemala, @guatepassport1 is a great resource. There’s also a nonprofit called ecoACTIVA in Antigua that host educational events and programs, AND there is a Hobbit-themed (because why not) zero waste restaurant called Hobbitenango.

Just a little preview of my visit to the family-owned @royalbrocades_83 workshop in Gujarat, maker of luxury silk and cotton fabrics. Check my stories for more amazingness. Hopefully I’ll have a blog post with details up soon, because I was so impressed with the work they do! (Thank you to @agaati.california for the connect!)

Bamboo construction is both inexpensive (the stuff grows everywhere) and is sustainable. The one downside is that it can rot after one or two rainy seasons. Luckily, we have some great volunteers at Ponies of Vang Vieng that did a great job repairing and replacing sections of our farm's bamboo fence.

it’s important for me to reflect and realize how travel has helped me evolve and grow. considering how I am able to impact the world and make a difference gives it all meaning. last year, we were lucky enough to learn about @animalaid_india - true earth angels saving and nursing sick and injured animals back to health. super excited to join @impacttravelalliance tomorrow and meet some like minded people. SD amigos, come join! #thisissustainable

For weeks leading up to November 1 and Día de Todos los Santos (All Saints), young people in the rural community of Santo Domingo Xenacoj in Guatemala work together to painstakingly create kites. These exquisitely designed kites are crafted from tissue paper and, on the day of the celebration, are released to commemorate the dead, being lifted on the breeze high into the skies and, as the belief goes, closer to the souls of the town's deceased loved ones. I left the country two days before the celebrations - so I'll obviously have to return to see them one day! Thanks to @guate4you for giving me the chance to see the incredible artists of the town at work! #thisissustainable #guatemalaimpresionante #todoslossantos #guatemaya #guatemagica #travelguatemala #travelawesome #perhapsyouneedalittleguatemala #traveltherenext

Well regarded with intrepid travelers, the rickshaw is a great way to see the city for those strapped for time. Weave through narrow streets and alleyways to get your fill of the sights and sounds of #Kathmandu.⠀
