You can make a difference. What kind will it be?

Sick of finding beautiful beaches ruined by “fast tourism?” Us too. 

Join us in changing the face of global travel.

After 20 years abroad, I moved back to APAC only to find my favorite beaches overrun with trash and diesel fumes. 

So many times, I booked “eco-friendly” hotels, only to discover mosquito-ridden swamps or dead pigeons. I got food sick, a staph infection, and a serious case of Dengue Fever. In short… I made these mistakes so that you don’t have to.

I needed a trustworthy source for places that are clean enough for my 4 year old daughter, luxurious enough to make it a real vacation, and far enough off the beaten path to make it fun. But how could I have the perfect vacation while still leaving a pristine environment behind me?
