Mindful Travel: 7 Ways to Travel Sustainably

This year is about to end and while we are sad over so many travel plans that didn't materialize, we are also equally grateful that we are still here - alive. At this point, we can only hope that after all these, we come out of this as better people (better than our old selves) and with a new found appreciation for travel, time and space (and everything else). Part of this renewed perspective is being able to rethink the 'way' we travel while preparing for the next one.

PLATES: Sagat Crust Food House

Most of my great food adventures and travel experiences were things I stumbled upon while searching for another.
