Mark Twain wrote: “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.” Perhaps, with the summer holidays upon us, and Brexit-based discussions about tolerance, immigration and our relationship with foreigners ringing in our ears, it’s worth e...

Exclusive interview with +Justin Francis, CEO Responsible Travel on his vision + making a difference:

"Ultimately our aim is to help create a more caring tourism industry but to do this we need to show that a more caring form of tourism is commercially successful. Tesla transformed prospects for electric cars, from essentially being dead in the water, to being an exciting, and widely accepted part of the automobile industry. Our ambition is to do the same for responsible tourism. To popularise it so it is widely accepted by tourists and the tourism industry, to create greater customer demand for it, to excite people about responsible tourism and to show the world that any type or tourism, from niche to mainstream can be more responsible. We hope we’ve made a start – since the start of 2015 we’ve grown 30% – the quickest in our 15 year history."

Overnight in a garden shed with a bear in Finland.
http://www.responsibletravel.com/copy/our-latest-thoughts

Responsible Travel's founder and CEO Justin Francis gets a little too close for comfort to brown bears in Finland's Wild Taiga forest as he shares the first in a series of his most memorable travel moments.

""As the bucket startled to rattle, my wife said there was a small horse coming out of the woods. Closer inspection revealed it to be a very large bear."

Sowing the seeds for our adventures - Our latest thoughts

"GB Paralympic cyclist and gold medal hopeful Karen Darke is not the only one of our ‘Folks We Love’ to be where she is now as a result of the adventures she had as a youngster."

"As families set off on holidays this month we urge parents to think about the opportunities they are giving their children to explore other cultures, to discover wildlife and nature, or to simply have an adventure. To sow the seeds for a lifetime of dreams – because who knows what these will grow into. "

"Base Camp is over half way up Everest (5,364m) and provides a basic campsite where the serious summiteers can rest and acclimatise before and after making an ascent. However, for us mere mortals, the thrill of reaching Base Camp is unimaginable and although you might not be able to see the summit and you’re encircled by tattered prayer flags and scattered debris there’s nothing that can match that moment of ‘I’ve done it!’."

Our newest travel guide helps you get there:
