Have you heard about the current getawaying trend called eco tourism? As the name suggests, this newly popular mode of trip taking is all about going on getaway while keeping in mind the needs of our planet. There are a multitude of ways to appreciate eco-tourism while getawaying. You can do only activities that do not require fuel. Such as surfing instead of boating or water skiing. You can join a rainforest or coastal cleanup group and help remove a mess somewhere. Another thing that is becoming more proper and more popular is staying at a resort that only has heating and cooling available at particular times of the day. Occasionally there is not cooling system and heating system at all, no matter what. These types of getaways are generally in warmer temperatures, of course, since trying to live in a frozen tundra without a heating system is impossible. Well, I almost went on a beach getaway that used really limited temperature control. At this resort, there was cooling system available at the hottest times of the day – from noon until 5:00 pm. After 5:00 pm, you could only use a ceiling fan or a box fan. Also, there were unheated swimming pools available, which are really cool and refreshing options if there is no cooling system to fall back on. The resort was gorgeous, but I just could not bring myself to sign up for the trip. One of our number one parts of being away from home is being able to adjust the control unit to whatever temperature I want and not have to worry about paying the heating and cooling bill. Eco tourism is a fantastic idea, but I am just not ready to go on adventures that do not include nice indoor air quality.
