What makes a traveller responsible? How can you reduce your impact on the environment and communities when you go on holidays?
My passion is for tourism and sustainability. Many years of experience in the hospitality and tourism industry in Australia, and a little in the UK, and now in Cambodia have built my knowledge in sustainable and responsible tourism.
I believe that everyone has a responsibility to take care when they’re travelling; being mindful of the impact you leave on a place and its people will help to give everyone a good experience. The best way to do that is to read up on the place and culture before you travel!

My first article is about markets. Fun, right? Yes they are! Markets are an excellent way to channel your travel dollars to the right places and have a positive effect on local communities. Read more about markets and responsible travel.
My articles on sustainable travel result from post-graduate studies in tourism, my own travel experiences and working for a responsible tourism NGO in Cambodia. I am extremely passionate about this topic and I hope my insights inspire you to be a responsible traveller too.
