How to Travel Sustainably and Consciously

Who else is ready to know when we will be able to plan the next trip?
I know! We are still trying to survive, also economically and emotionally, but I believe that this "quiet" period has brought many reflections regarding the activities and behaviors that we could do differently, right?
I do not mean to romanticize quarantine, neither minimize the sad number of lost lives during the pandemic, but if there is a lesson on all that, it is that it is about time to rethink our attitudes and practices as a whole, considering how they affect other people, our community, and nature.
I personally have been thinking a lot about how can we reduce our social-ecological impact in many sectors, but including in traveling. I must admit that I have been the one buying the cheapest flights with millions stops and that, misinformed, I have been to attractions that explore animals.
