We quickly realized how positive we felt about taking a vacation connected to a greater purpose. Sustainable travel has enhanced each of us individually and as
a family – the experiences are deeper and more meaningful. Our two boys
were particularly inspired to learn about different ways they can help protect the planet. They’ve told us that they like going to places that are committed to sustainability more than those that are not.
Unequivocally, yes! It’s phenomenally fulfilling and delightfully fun – in fact, traveling with this mind-set feels like we’re weaving a web of connectedness with people across the planet who love to travel, care about nature, and want to give back in positive ways.
How we humans all live on one planet, breathing the same air, desiring the same basic needs, and wanting love for our families. And how they can undoubtedly do their part, with joy and ease, to make the world a better place.
If you like nature, you’ll love this place. Vermejo is more than half a million acres of wilderness that Ted Turner has restored and protected. It’s like having a national park to yourself. They organized a surprise Champagne picnic for us on a rock outcrop overlooking a valley where the buffalo really do roam and the deer and the antelope graze! We’d go back in a heartbeat. Our boys also really enjoyed the fishing, target shooting, and archery.
For the Turner family, there’s no stone unturned, no question that can’t be asked, no answer beyond reach when it comes to creating a more sustainable future for our planet. They have restored entire ecosystems, helped bring the American bison back from the brink of extinction, and are demonstrating how a great vacation can go hand in hand with caring for our planet.
Absolutely! This is increasingly evident, as we read and hear about it almost daily in the travel media. There’s immense good to be done – how fortunate we all are to be a part of it.
