Treat travel as a learning opportunity, first and foremost. Keep your eyes and your mind open. Indulge your curiosity. Be brave, and find your own journey of discovery.
Travel smart. Remember that just because you're abroad doesn’t mean you are invincible, entitled or above the rules (you're not).
Acknowledge that tourism has a dark side. Don't knowingly support this underbelly. Grow from any past mistakes.
Choose the path less traveled, and tread lightly along the way. Offset your carbon footprint, use less plastic, make the most sustainable choice wherever you can. If you think somewhere is amazing, chances are future generations will too – make sure it's there for them to experience.
If you can give a little back in the places you visit, do – those few dollars can go further than you may imagine.
