Sustainable Backpacking Through the Faroe Islands

The Faroe Islands make up a remote archipelago in the heart of the North Atlantic Ocean. This Nordic destination consists of 18 major islands and is over 600 miles away from Denmark. Apart from being part of the Kingdom of Denmark, the Faroe Islands is a self-governing archipelago renowned for its controversial whaling practices. It is not an easily accessible destination nor is it made for budget traveling. However, it has some magnificent sights.

Where to go for Craft Beer in Jerusalem and Bethlehem

People travel from across the world to witness and explore the numerous religious and historical sites of both Jerusalem and Bethlehem, of which there are enough to fill several days.

Since we’re fans of craft beer and live with a limited offering in Amman, Jordan we explored the area in a way that was less traditional from your typical visit.

How to be a Sustainable Traveler

How can you be a sustainable traveler? Well, the best way is to be mindful of the waste you produce when traveling, especially non-biodegradable waste, like plastic. This is critical as many countries, especially developing economies which are often popular tourist destinations don’t always have the infrastructure to collect and process waste.
