Welcome to Course Charted!
If you’re into slow, sustainable, savvy travel then you’re in the right place.
SLOW — Being a slow traveler means being a mindful, present visitor wherever you go. It means tailoring your itinerary so you can slow down and immerse in the destination.
Whether you have a weekend, a week, a month, or longer at your destination you can be a slow traveler. And I’ll show you how!
SUSTAINABLE — Traveling sustainably means carefully selecting where your valuable tourism-dollars go. It means supporting businesses and initiatives that want to protect and preserve our beautiful planet.
If you’re a sustainable traveler you’re trying to leave a place the same or better than how you found it. At Course Charted, one of my goals is for us to have a positive impact on the places we visit!
SAVVY — If you’re doing both of the above, you’re well on your way to being a savvy traveler! But I don’t just want you to have incredible, life-changing travel experiences. I want you to get a great deal on them as well.
In addition to destination guides focused on immersing in a destination’s culture and cuisine, Course Charted is full of travel-hacking resources to help you maximize your travel-dollars!
