…it just supposed to happen.
i love nature. i love sports and travel. i adore travelling to remote places to enjoy nature. driven by the elements, dancing with rocks, competing with the wind, pure skin covered with water, taken by currents and waves, facing cold & being stunned by views and landscapes. encounter people, foreign habits and traditions, sharing unknown fruits and foods, drinks and juices…
This led me to several places around the world and to think about how travelling can contribute to protect nature. tourism often and in many ways exploits resources. social, economic and ecological ones. but there are diffrent ways. sustainability projects and real corporate social responsability, not only greenwashing, can foster resource protection for future generations.
National Parks are an established instrument to protect nature AND make it possible for nature lovers to experience remote places and intact ecosystems.
As an intern at PECTA, the Pamir Eco Cultural Tourism Association, it will be my task for 3 months to help developing sustainable touristic startegies for Pamir Mountains National Park.
This blog will report about this project and my personal experiences.
Join me and let us discover: TAJIKISTAN!
