Camping is a great way to explore the Mediterranean territories. Some nice tips on being responsible about it:
Pitching a tent, sleeping in a sleeping bag, swimming, fishing, hiking, roasting marshmallows and hot dogs over the fire- whatever your favourite camping activity is, there’s definitely no shortage of fun to be had while camping.

Villa Melina is a biodynamic farm nurtured by a couple who left the rat race to follow their dreams. They were kind enough to walk our #consumelessproject team through the farm and treat them to a delicious home-grown & home made lunch. Grazie!

Did you know-? "The U.S. has 3,900% more sun than Germany while Germany uses 6,000% more solar than the United States."
5 Myths About Solar Power - (https://gplnk.io/2pYKYgx)

"Solar power means no more modern technologies."

False. The first of many misconceptions about solar power in Denton, Texas we will be debunking today is whether or not you will have to give up a certain way of life. You do not. This misconception comes from the idea that going solar means giving up 21st-century luxuries. This is absolutely false! You can still have your computers, washers and dryers, television sets, and even that giant pool you’ve always wanted!

"Solar power has no real estate value."

False. The Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has found that buyers are willing to pay a $15,000 premium for homes with solar panels. While the exact value will differ from state to state, this study has found that buyers are not shying away from solar-powered homes.

"Solar power is expensive."

False. This misconception is very common, but solar power is becoming more and more affordable every day. The cost of solar dropped 17% in 2010 and an additional 11% in the first half of 2011. The government has also created incentives to persuade Americans to purchase solar power in an effort to go green. The federal government will pay a 30% tax credit, but this won’t last long.

"Solar panels only work in sunny areas."

False. This misconception about solar power is very common and understandably so. When you think of solar power, you would think that the solar panels need heat from the sun. Germany is currently #1 in solar, yet they have lower temperatures than the U.S. This is because solar panels don’t need the heat from the sun, they need the light. The U.S. has 3,900% more sun than Germany while Germany uses 6,000% more solar than the United States. Even in cloudy weather, as long as the panels are exposed to 5.3 sun hours of light, they will function properly.

"Solar power only works on south facing roofs."

False. Ideally, solar panels should be facing South to gain the most sun hours, but they can still work just as well while facing East or West. Efficiency goes down by roughly 12%, but more panels can be purchased to make up for the loss. Even if you choose not to make up the difference, with a little extra time, non-south facing panels will work just as well.

"Venetians are becoming notorious for being hostile to tourists, but have these tourists paused to consider why a local might feel that way?"

Do you think there's a problem with charging tourists for access to famous or popular sights, or should it be required to help make tourism sustainable for the locals?

Good morning from sunny Ragusa!

A cool moment from our trip yesterday to Realmonte, Sicily. You can see the stunning 'Scala dei Turchi' in the reflection:
