Our "Eat, Pray, Love" journey has led us to an organic farm in Italy and a wellness retreat in India. For our last entry, we'll focus on the universal importance of sustainable tourism, using Bali as a prime example of eco-conscious travel done right.
“The key point is to have genuine sense of universal responsibility, based on love and compassion, and clear awareness.” - The Dalai Lama
Liz Gilbert (and her on-screen counterpart, Julia Roberts) went to Bali in search of an equilibrium between worldly pleasure and spiritual devotion. Sustainability itself is the equilibrium between community, conservation, and commerce. Having a sense of universal responsibility is key in managing the balance of these interrelated components.
Finding Balance in Bali
Bali is world re-known for it’s incredible lush tropical surroundings, beaches, and unique culture. Unfortunately, commercialism and environmental destruction are putting these incredible Balinese qualities at risk. Thankfully, with the help of sustainable tourism, measures are being taken to preserve this nation’s treasures for generations to come.
