I had a blast recording the episode with this duo! We talked about tons of good stuff I think you'll enjoy.
- How they both have "conventional" jobs and still make travel a priority - and sometimes even involve their work!
- What "off the beaten path" means to Emily and Aaron, as well as how you can do it too
- The sections of ethical travel they're passionate about and how we can take steps to travel (and live) more ethically
You know we've got some really great links for you after this episode!
- These two guides are referenced a few times in this episode: Ethical Travel Resources to learn more and a Trip Planning Guide to help you make sure you're keeping your travels ethical
- Looking for great examples of "off the beaten path?" Try a spring break trip to Cancun or some exploring in Aruba, trust 'em!
- Check out G Adventures or Urban Adventures for tour ideas in your next destination - or pick your next destination this way
- We all love searching for gems on AirBnB and if you haven't used it before, this link will get you $40 off your first stay (that's an affiliate link so I'll get some credit too!)
- A good place to start with traveling sustainable is to review the Leave No Trace seven principles + social media guidelines
- Here's a calculator if you're interested in estimating your carbon footprint
- This post about a sailboat charter in The Bahamas is saved in my "Want to Adventure" bookmarks folder!
- Going on a medical mission? I urge you to start here and do some research!
- We have learned a lot from How Not to Travel Like a Basic Bitch, but the Traveling While Native series gets a mention in this episode
- Know whose land you're traveling on (and take a native-led tour in Monument Valley!)
- Emily will be traveling with Blue Sky Society later this year
- Follow these rad people on Instagram (and maybe someday hear them on this show!): Cali Wolf, Karen Ramos, Katy Gräble
