New Year, New Travels: Where to go in 2010?
While we’re busy forgetting our new year’s resolutions and recovering from a string of holidays when travel is too often limited to visiting the folks and local destinations, we should be getting ready to plan another year’s worth of sustainable travel adventures. Floating on a riverboat in Vietnam’s Cai Be, huddling around a wood-burning stove in the exotic but cozy White Pod Camp in the Swiss Alps, and hiking through the mesmerizing Torres del Paine National Park in Patagonia, Chile were among the highlights for 2009, but green travel destinations abound, and the most breathtaking views, elegant boutique hotels, and overpowering wildlife adventures are yet to be discovered in the new decade.
If you're not quite sure where to travel in 2010, take a look at these amazing green travel destinations, and make sure you don't miss out on the special deals we're offering through the end of the month!
