We’ve made up our minds: were leaving for a 1 year tour of South-West Asia.
We can already see and hear you in front of your screens on the other side of the world…lucky them…they’re leaving on vacation for a year…well let us reassure you, not this time! We will be far from the sun soaking, toes buried in the sand and cocktails in hand. Instead, imagine two sweaty nomads with their backpacks, using sign language to communicate as they try to locate the small authentic lodges that are lost deep in the middle of nature. But wait, there’s more!
On the menu: meetings and trainings with the major actors of responsible tourism, development of an innovative way of travelling with Hopineo and communication of our learnings to the futur actors of ecotourism. Let’s not forget the agreements with our partners (blog articles write-ups, advertising, sales…) and most but not least, the professional help that we will offer in exchange for board…We’ll be far from idle!
Please rest assured, we are in no way lacking motivation to go forward with this project! With our incurable need to be on the move, our thirst of traveling, discovering, meeting, and our passion for diversity, authenticity and nature, this project is the perfect answer to our accomplishment needs, present and futur.
Today, more and more travellers go beyond pleasure and discovery, and are looking into travelling in a way that respects the nature and the local populations that greet them. We want to play our part in the expansion of this movement.
With this project, we would like to raise tourist awareness of the economical, environmental, social and political stakes implicated with each destination, in order to motivate them in applying a more responsible travelling approach facing local populations. We would also like to help these local populations identify the advantages in orientating themselves towards sustainable tourism as citizens, individually or collectively. And finally, what better way to train yourself for a career in sustainable tourism then to directly meet the actors of this sector!
Our only drawback is our budget, which is insufficient for the moment. That is the reason why we are soliciting your financial contribution. In exchange, we promise to share our trip with you through anecdotes, photos, videos and postal cards. This is the project of a lifetime, which we hope will impact the lives of many. Participate and contribute for a better tourism so that your children and our children can also have the chance to visit these unique destinations!
Here’s all that we can say for the moment, see you soon for the great departure, M-3!!
