Step Six, Relaxing on Holidays

Air travel has increased enormously in recent years. It’s can be hard not to be tempted by €5 ads for flying to cities that you haven’t even heard of. However maybe the added costs of climate change don’t appear in the ads, a bit like the mysterious charges that only become visible at the check-in desk.

Traveling by ferry and train to the UK or the continent can be a magical way of relaxing and simply enjoying the ride. The UK travel website Seat 61 is a mine of information.

Maybe think about Galway, instead of Prague for that weekend away, and a holiday on the Aran Islands can change your mind about staying at home, particularly if you get the weather.

Flying less is one of the real challenges in reducing your carbon emissions, but it can allow you to enjoy the journey as much as the destination.
