What do you know about Responsible Travel? I wrote about my time at the CBT Vietnam presentation on the Power of Responsible Travel #traveltuesday   #traveltips   #traveling   #responsibletravel

Israel was one of my first trips overseas - On a 6 week road trip across this tiny country, my stepfather, an Israeli ex-pat, showed me the ropes. Israel is one of the most surprisingly beautiful places I've ever been, find out why: #Bucketlist   #Israel   #MiddleEast   #Traveltips   #travelblogger   #urbanxenophile
