First things first: thank you so much for visiting our travel and lifestyle blog! We are Anni and Timo, a couple from Germany with passions for travel, health and a sustainable lifestyle.
Our greatest goal is to live as sustainably as possible – in harmony with nature and the climate. In other words, we are against exploitation of any kind and want to do good to other people and animals. In order to live up to this claim, we constantly question our own actions and always try to improve ourselves. On the one hand we want to be a good example with our lifestyle. On the other hand, we also want to become active by encouraging the economy and politics to finally make a change towards sustainability.
That’s why we would like to share our thoughts and opinions on this travel and lifestyle blog with you.
3 REASONS WHY WE START BLOGGING
- A unique combination of travel, health, sustainability
- stop climate change by achieving a sustainable and cruelty-free world system
- Do good, connect, respect, support and inspire
1. Unique combination
We have never seen the combination of travel, health and sustainability in a blog before. Nevertheless, we believe these topics fit together perfectly and therefore decided to write about them.
The overall income and living standards on earth are rising. Therefore more and more people can afford to travel the world.
Traveling is a great way to connect people, understand different cultures and helps to understand the world itself. These are great benefits and we think it is important that we start thinking more globally in order to consider the health of the entire planet.
Unfortunately, increased world tourism puts enormous stress on the environment and may affect the destruction of what itself depends. The major negative impacts of conventional tourism are damage to the landscape, waste and pollution.
Therefore, we want to appeal to the tourism industry to focus on health and sustainability aspects. In contrast to conventional tourism, sustainable tourism the concept of visiting places and make a positive impact on the local environment and simultaneously preserve the global environment.
A long-term healthy lifestyle – including fit traveling
Being healthy is essential for a joyful life and it should be easy as well as affordable to achieve! We studied Health and Sports Science at university and since then we can’t stop educating ourselves about nutrition and fitness.
After lots of research, we decided to change to a whole foods plant-based diet. Since our diet has a tremendous impact on our own health and on climate change at the same time, we believe it is inevitable for the planet that we eat more plants and less animal-sourced food.
How to escape and stay in shape?
While exploring the world, we experienced how difficult it can be to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Hence we decided to share how we stay fit while traveling and share the idea of active, plant-based holidays.
2. System change, not climate change
Climate justice is a global challenge. But in order to make a change, we should start to listen to the science. We (addressing the western world especially) also have to change our lifestyle, economics, and last but not least our politics.
This isn’t achieved in one or two days, but it is a process that needs acceleration because science tells us we’re running out of time. We want to contribute to this acceleration with our blog.
Whether its little things we can change as individuals or campaigning for large scale changes on economic and political levels – we need to understand the urgency of this global issue!
3. do good and inspire people
Actions speak louder than words!
But what if nobody knows about your actions?
We believe that acting and spreading a message in combination as the greatest power!
However, it is not about any of us being perfect, doing everything right or always having the right opinion. Rather, it is about growing together to meet daily challenges.
