Have you heard about the current vacationing trend called eco tourism? As the name suggests, this newly popular mode of trip taking is all about going on vacation while keeping in mind the needs of our planet. There are a multitude of ways to love ecotourism while vacationing. 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 plus help remove a mess anywhere. Another thing that is becoming more official plus more popular is staying at a resort that only has heating plus cooling available at certain times of the afternoon. Periodically there is not a/c plus gas furnace at all, no matter what. These types of vacations are generally in warmer temperatures, of course, since trying to live in a frozen tundra without a gas furnace is impossible. Well, I almost went on a beach vacation that used certainly limited temperature control. At this resort, there was a/c available at the hottest times of the afternoon – 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 certainly cool plus refreshing options if there is no a/c to fall back on. The resort was gorgeous, despite the fact that I just could not bring myself to sign up for the trip. One of our favorite parts of being away from home is being able to adjust the thermostat to whatever temperature I want plus not have to worry about paying the heating plus cooling bill. Eco tourism is a great idea, despite the fact that I am just not ready to go on adventures that do not include nice indoor air pollen levels.
