This blog continues to chronicle my adventures in retirement or the 'next stage' of my life. Join me as I search for a simpler life as I re-learn to appreciate what I already have and to acknowledge that 'little people can make a difference'!
The New York subway that we used several times a day!
I feel a little bit guilty because in a very recent post, Rhonda Jean commented that flying is not good for the environment and she no longer travels that way. In a recent interview, Dr David Suzuki was asked if he was ever going to come back to Australia to speak to audiences. He said that he now had enough carbon credits and would be able to justify a trip some time soon. So why do I feel guilty??? DH and I have been travelling in the last 4 weeks and so far we've had 2 flights and have hired 2 cars to drive around the US. We have no carbon credits but have been using public transport in places like LA, SF and NY. We've walked a fair bit too. I guess I'd better check out more information about carbon credits. I do make the effort at home to reduce, re-use and recycle and to do without if something is not necessary. But perhaps I need to do more!
