Carrie and I have both come to believe that the right kind of tourism can be a driver of equitable and sustainable development. We both saw the positive (and negative) impacts that tourism can have while living in Jordan-I (Albert) lived in the heart of the religious tourist trail, Madaba, and Carrie lived just a few miles from two of Jordan’s main tourist sites, Petra and Wadi Rum.
With each trip, we try to maximize our contribution to the local economy and reduce our negative impact on the environment. We've achieved this by staying in locally owned hotels, eating at locally owned and operated restaurants, and buying locally made products when feasible, as well as incorporating sustainability into our travel by reducing our waste while traveling. In so doing, our experience has been that much more rewarding.
