Inaugural Post

I thought it would be a good idea, for my first posting, to share some of the things I hope to address in the future of this blog to titillate your interest. (Yes, I just said titillate)

But I think it is first important to start at the very beginning, it’s a very good place to start. When you write you begin with “A, B, C”, when you travel you begin with “Where the hell am I?”

Lot’s of travel blogs will tell you all about the next coolest place to visit in the world, but not mine. OK, I lie, maybe I will a little bit. My main goal, however, is to spread the word about sustainable tourism. Now, before you go waving me off for being too “hippie” or a “tree-huger” take a listen to some of my ideas. I am fully aware that many believe sustainable tourism is an oxymoron since tourism itself is a rather consumptive activity. In many ways this is true, and I fully acknowledge that I too consume a great deal when I travel and leave a mighty footprint when I fly on planes. But, I am hoping to show you that there are smart, smarter, and smartest choices to make while traveling that do result in positive sustainable outcomes and can increase the fun factor on your holiday experience. I hope to cover a broad range of topics as this blog of mine progresses. From questioning what sustainable tourism really means, to highlighting specific sites and sounds around the world that can be sustainably experienced. I also plan to talk about some cheaper traveling options, for those like me with small budgets, that can make larger differences in a community than an over the top, oober pricey, resorty/cruisey vacation. And if you are lucky I may post some embarrassing holiday photos and videos of my own travel experiences. Obviously I would do this to once again titillate your interest.

So, to get things started, I would love for you to send me any questions you have or ideas you would like me to discuss about traveling, tourism, sustainability, my love of trekking with llamas, etc. Let this blog be your oyster.

Wait, what?

    We’ll be in San Francisco for several days in a couple of weeks with family from the Midwest. Do you have any suggestions for activities other than the large tourist attractions that would support the local community?

  2. How did you do this so fast??? Am I the first to post ??? Do I win something : )

  3. YOU TREE-HUGER, YOU!

    What suggestions do you have for moving the United Kingdom and finding a British husband?

    • I think an engineer might have better ideas about how to move the United Kingdom. But perhaps you should increase your carbon footprint, which will accelerate global warming, which will melt the glaciers more quickly, which will cause the sea level to rise, which will hopefully make it easier for the United Kingdom to float on over the to US.

  4. I want a llama now! Way to go Lizzie!

  5. Having done the “traveling poor through Europe” thing, what tips do you have for college students who want to travel and see the world but want to do it, a) on the cheap and b) in a way that is sustainable?

  6. Again go online, Google ‘register domain name’ and you will see
    a number of company names come up that handle domain registrations.
    Companies may choose to end up being represented by those people who are likely to draw
    in enormous numbers of new customers, however in reality any kind of
    advertising and marketing they can acquire, they are going to use,
    particularly when it is totally free. Then you will promote the products
    through article writing or use of ads to drive traffic to your
    site in hopes someone makes a purchase which in return makes
    you money.

  7. I read this paragraph fully concerning the resemblance of hottest and previous technologies, it’s amazing article.

  8. Hi there, just became aware of your blog through Google, and found that it’s
    really informative. I’m going to watch out for brussels.
    I will appreciate if you continue this in future.
    Many people will be benefited from your writing. Cheers!

  9. With havin so much content do you everr run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My site has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it appears a
    lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement.
    Do you know any techniques to help reduce content from being ripped off?
    I’d definitely appreciate it.

  10. Skype has opened its internet-centered consumer beta
    on the entire world, right after launching it largely inside
    the United states and U.K. earlier this 30 days. Skype
    for Online also now facilitates Chromebook and Linux for immediate messaging interaction (no video and
    voice nevertheless, individuals require a plug-in installation).

    The increase of your beta brings help for a longer listing of different languages to help you reinforce that global functionality
