Travel is more than getting from Point A to B. The act of moving connects us to places and people in ways unimagined by standing still. Moving beyond the horizon, we need to be open to new experiences and empathetic to others.
Planeta.com was launched in 1994 to explore ecotourism and to seek linkages among friends working in conservation and tourism.
Humans writing about travel is like fish writing about water. Travel is our liquid, our way of understanding our world, via direct experiences (the journey begins with one step …) and via vicarious adventures, communicated by friends and family, directly and indirectly with souvenir postcards, tweets, yelp reviews, photos and videos, and new acquaintances, friends.
