Upgyres has partnered with Oceanwide Expeditions to create an unforgettable holiday experience - where we merge tourism with environmental education and most importantly; action!

Garbage from the ocean is piling up on the shores of Spitsbergen, Norway. UpGyres is promoting a seven night Trip to the Arctic from August 28 to September 4, 2015.

Forget about the ordinary summer vacation where you do nothing but laying on the beach all day long and eat at the hotel restaurant. There is at least one place in Italy that will amaze you with the numerous opportunities of spending your free time at the seaside in a ‘sustainable’ way. It was a tough choice for me, but Bibione, on the Adriatic Sea coast of Italy, was the destination I finally selected for this summer.

These are the tales, adventures, photos and insights into Francisco’s (that’s me writing this) exploratory voyage and life in the world of Damanhur.  If you don’t know what Damanhur is, then take a little visit to their web site  http://www.damanhur.org/
The web site will give you a “overview” of what they are about there. Yes, I did write that with quotations. . . since, what I’ve been firmly reminded during my stay here, is that the meaning of a word can vary greatly from one person, or group, to another.

I learn when I don't think about learning. I am not the person to be confined in within a box. It's better if it is a library of knowledge that I have. But it is best if I immerse myself in the experience of learning. 

But how am I going to be in the process of achieving that goal?

rThen and now...

If I wasn't already sure, it's clear to me now; sustainability lies somewhere between the new technological world, and the rural way of life that still existed in North America (and the rest of the world, for that matter) about a hundred years ago.
