The new app for conscious travelling

Ever since I was a child I've wanted to travel and each year my relationship with setting off with no plan and a rucksack continues to grow.

Being in India for Holi festival has been on my bucket list for years.  It just so happened that I booked my yoga teacher training course to coincide with Holi, and only realising this after I booked it, I was so excited.

Elephants are one of the main victims with elephant riding continuing to be a popular holiday activity in some parts of Asia.
