Traveling without Baggage
by Nora Livingstone
So you have decided to change your life and take part in a volunteer trip. How will you ensure your impact is a good one? How will you travel ethically? This manual is a preamble to your trip. Something to get you thinking. Thinking about travelling, about coming back and about the impact you have. This manual is here to remind you about the continual impact we all have on the people we know and meet. Filled with volunteer and travel stories, mental health insights and everything else you will need to know before your plane takes off.
Topics include what the heck ethical means, anthropological frames, compassion fatigue, culture shock, and other stuff that will make your urge to travel urgent!
