    Hiking with positive impact while traveling

    Hiking with positive impact – what you can do to make this world a better place! When Saskia from Better Places Travel asked me if I wanted to share my vision on #positivetravel I immediately became enthusiastic. While I’m doing my best do contribute to a better world already, I figured that I’d share my thoughts on positive travel with you. Since there are already many blogs written about the most common ways to travel environmental friendly (travel local, compensate your CO2 emissions) I’m sharing my thoughts on walking and hiking with positive impact with you.
