How to Travel With a Social Consciousness by Becki Enright

Social Consciousness

Social consciousness is travelling with awareness and thought.

It’s about knowing and trying to understand the country, (socially, politically, culturally and historically) and not dismissing it for its faults or limitations but understanding why it has them.

It’s also about wanting to be a responsible traveler – impacting positively on local communities. It’s not about selfishly ‘doing’ something but working out the best way to go about it, and questioning if it justifiable to do it at all.

Becki Enright is a socially conscious traveler and shares her insider tips on how you can become one too in this interview…

True Story: How Losing Everything, Redefined Having It All…

Heidi Siefkas was a happily married, globetrotting professional who seemingly had it all—until a tree limb in New York’s Hudson River Valley struck her down, breaking her neck and leaving her unconscious.

Suddenly, life as she knew it stopped.

She lost her independence. She lost her career. She watched her marriage disintegrate as she confronted a trail of devastating lies about her husband’s double life.

She had lost all that mattered, but she was a survivor.

She fought to restore her health, repair her broken heart, and rebuild herself. Along the way, she gained clarity about her core values, ultimately coming to a deeper understanding of what it means to have it all.

Heidi’s most recent book, When All Balls Drop, shows us how it’s possible to look up in spite of pain, deceit, and loss.

Heidi’s memoir–rich with hope and humor–inspires anyone who’s had to confront tragedy and reassess their life in the wake of life-altering events…

Outdoor Adventure Getaway to Quebec City…

Quebec is friendly, quaint, and an outdoor traveler’s bucket list destination.

Bring your walking or hiking shoes, as the best way to explore Quebec City is by foot.

With various hills and two natural levels due to its location on the cliffs of the St. Lawrence, there are over thirty staircases. The largest staircase in Quebec City and my personal favorite is Cap Blanc with nearly 400 stairs, which is a great workout for locals and athletic visitors alike; however, most are less strenuous and with fewer stairs.

Regardless a trip to Quebec is good for your legs with no good excuse for skipping dessert or that extra glass of wine…

Tapping Adventure in Finger Lakes, New York…

As a Finger Lakes first-timer, the area must have known that I, too, was a small town storyteller, welcoming me with open arms and eager to share their stories along with some sips.

Armed with just enough pre-trip research and a map, I gravitated towards my first line of business in any new place, getting the lay of the land…

Looking For a Denver City Guide? Morgan Can Help…

Denver City Guide

My name is Morgan and I lived in Denver, Colorado, USA for 22 years.

Denver can best be described in these five words: Sunny, Healthy, Casual, Creative, and Beautiful.

Women should consider visiting Denver because it is truly unique – it has all the culture and amenities of a big city, but is small enough that you never feel crowded or overwhelmed. The people are friendly, the skies are almost always stunningly blue,  and there are limitless opportunities for fun activities – both indoor and outdoor.

Aditionally, Denver receives, on average, 300 days of sun a year – so the chances of getting a bright, beautiful day are very high…
