Being a responsible traveler isn’t about checking items off of a list. It’s about dedicating yourself to being a lifelong learner - something I’m a huge advocate for - to consistently be aware of ways you can live more mindfully. What a great mindset, and not just for travel right?! Today, Erin is back on the show to continue to teach us about being responsible travelers. To view the full show notes, continue reading here or visit my website: http://www.heartfelthippie.com (www.heartfelthippie.com) Last week on Part 1, Erin and I went through 7 of her 10 best tips for being a responsible tourist. We talked about things like acknowledging diversity and being respectful of other cultures - it was truly an enlightening time with so many good lessons that apply to many areas of life even beyond tourism. Today, we’re going through the rest of Erin’s tips and focusing mostly on the sustainability side of travel. There are so many ways to reduce our environmental impact while traveling and Erin has plenty of great ideas for us.  I loved all of Erin’s advice and it has me excited to plan my next trip, whether it’s an international getaway or a local road trip! Even though many of us are currently unable to travel, I think you will find this time with Erin inspirational and it will help you to be a little more mindful the next time you hop on a plane, on a train, or even in your car with tent in tow.  Links from the show: Shop Redeemed With Purpose Jewelry - use code MACKENZIEN for 15% off: https://www.redeemedwithpurpose.com/shop (https://www.redeemedwithpurpose.com/shop) Pina Travels Blog Post: https://www.pinatravels.org/discoveries/responsible-tourist?rq=responsible (https://www.pinatravels.org/discoveries/responsible-tourist?rq=responsible) Alpaca My Bags Podcast Episode with Natasha Daly: https://www.pinatravels.org/episodes/animal-tourism (https://www.pinatravels.org/episodes/animal-tourism) Grayl Water Bottles: https://grayl.com/ (https://grayl.com/) Alpaca My Bags Podcast Episode with Evelina Utterdahl: https://www.pinatravels.org/episodes/sustainable-travel (https://www.pinatravels.org/episodes/sustainable-travel) “Little Fires Everywhere” by Celeste Ng https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/51704136-little-fires-everywhere (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/51704136-little-fires-everywhere) You’re Wrong About Podcast: https://yourewrongabout.com/ (https://yourewrongabout.com/) Connect with Mackenzie: Instagram: @theheartfelthippie // @the.enlightenme.podcast Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/theheartfelthippie/ (https://www.facebook.com/theheartfelthippie/) Website: http://www.heartfelthippie.com (www.heartfelthippie.com) Email: mackenzie.heartfelthippie@gmail.com Connect with Erin: Instagram, TikTok, and other socials: @pinatravels Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/PinaTravels/ Website: https://www.pinatravels.org/ Podcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/alpaca-my-bags/id1449041086

The Ron Burgundy Podcast

The Ron Burgundy Podcast

Will Ferrell reprises his role as Ron Burgundy in his brand new Ron Burgundy Podcast! Each episode has a different theme in which Ron engages in conversation with another notable person on the topic at hand. In true Ron Burgundy fashion, these conversations have a tendency to go off the rails, and we find out things about people we never knew we wanted to know. In season 2, Ron considers a run for President, continues to perform music, and blacks out at work. In Season 1, Ron addressed important issues like bullying and the mind-expanding nature of meditation, and attempted to ultimately answer the question “seriously, what is a podcast?”
