Being a responsible traveller himself, Rasmus lays out some tips where people can also become responsible travellers.
It’s time for people to give less excuses and show more action as travelling requires more efforts and actions for you to take on the world. It is essential to travel to keep the soul happy and one such travel influencer who lives for travelling is Rasmus Peter Kristensen. This man, along with his wife, travels the world, gathers all kinds of experiences and shares them on their Instagram page called “Resort”. This page is a unique space for all the travel lovers as travellers can share their unique experiences of hotels, resorts, places, etc. and tag @resort on Instagram so that they get the chance to get featured on their page and influence others as well for travelling.
However, it is also very important to be a responsible traveller and leave trails of yours, making it a better place for others. Rasmus explains that responsible travel is when individuals are aware of how their travelling can affect the destinations and cultures around the world. It is about knowing how you can impact people and places through your travelling activities. It is about awareness and kindness for the places and the world overall where you travel.
Hence, below are some of the pro tips by the man himself Rasmus, who shares his tips on how one can be a responsible traveller.
- Respect the people of the destination and their culture: Behaving like a guest to a new place is being kind enough to the locals there. Hence, Rasmus says what people might do in their hometown may not be acceptable in other places of the world, so they must behave responsibly and respect the culture and the locals of the new place.
- Go for local shopping: When travelling to a new place, always first find out the local eateries or the local places where you can stay so that you contribute something to the local economy of that place. You can even support small family-run businesses, by staying in their guest houses, buying from local sellers, etc. advises Rasmus.
- Do not use plastic: The harmful impacts and effects plastic can have all over the world is known to all; however, still, people use plastic bags, cans, bottles, when travelling, which Rasmus says should be a complete no-no.
- Choose walking: For discovering any new place, Rasmus says that people must choose to walk and know the different areas of a city or town as it also does good to the environment. Roaming around in a new place is a unique experience altogether.
Travelling had always inspired Rasmus even as a kid as he always wished to explore the many unknown places on the earth. He feels that travelling sets him free and makes him live some out of the world experiences of his life. Hence, he also created Resort, where he gives a chance to many other people like him to share their travelling experiences by tagging them @resort and helping people to map out the various hotels, resorts and places they recommend to others.
Rasmus’ Resort in a very short time has gained great momentum and has crossed more than 1.1 million followers already.
