Travelers have a lot to consider when planning a trip home for the holidays — Will the flight have Wi-Fi? Who will feed the cat while I’m gone? — but one thing they might not think about is the impact their traveling has on the environment.

While completing my engineering degree I won a scholarship to go on exchange to the National University of Singapore. I enjoyed making new international friendships and Singapore’s modern study environment, but most of all, I loved learning about the diverse Southeast Asian culture. Perhaps this was when I caught the travel bug, because when I was 23, I quit my civil engineering job to go traveling abroad.
