    Unfortunately, a two way flihgth holland-thailand is about as much c02 emissions as two years of car driving…so it might feel as reducing your footprint, but get the numbers, and travel by coach or train to be sustainable as a backpacker

      Thank you for your comment! 🙂 True. Though we try not to claim that traveling is sustainable, because it (probably) never will be. But we will also never be able to not travel, as for many people their jobs rely on long haul flights as well. We try to explain that backpacking is one of the most (if not the utttermost) sustainable ways to travel. It is different from mass tourism and that can be seen in the carbon footprint when you compare both travel styles.
