Sustainable Tourism

Berlin writer Beatrice introduces us to sustainable tourism initiatives, guided tours and encounters in Germany while Kiwi blogger Jub reports which initiatives there are in New Zealand that support sustainable tourism. For example we learn about saving rare livestock breeds in Germany and why swimming with dolphins is no longer allowed in New Zealand's Bay of Islands.

Beatrice Anton

Beatrice Anton describes herself as a “blogger, freelancer and total yoga junkie”. She is interested in any ideas that can help to make our world a better place. In her blog REISEZEILEN she writes about slow travel and travel as an intensive, self-aware activity and experience. She is firmly convinced that ecotourism must become the norm rather than the exception, and that (hopefully) all of us will soon embrace a more sustainable lifestyle as a matter of course.

Jub (Jordan Bryant)

Jub originally from Waikanae, a classic small town in New Zealand. Since discovering the benefits of travel in 2013 he has been travelling the road doing whatever piques his curiousity. That isn't made easy with the inability to make a decision, but one big takeaway is that we shouldn't copy the 'perfect' itinerary. Even in little New Zealand, which is at risk of over-tourism, there are still many places to get off the beaten path if you choose your own journey rather than follow others. That is part of his mission with ChurNewZealand.com
