Reduce Flights

Yey! Today I can say that I have not flown in a year (unless I'm forgetting something). I flew last time because we won a trip by EasyJet to Manchester, the trip was half a disaster though so not sure I ever want to "win" a trip again.

Probably I will still fly in the future but it feels nice have avoided at least some carbon footprint for a year. Next time I fly I don't know if I will be able to do it with a clear conscience without carbon compensating though. I know it won't make it up but at least it will be something.

If you want to calculate your flights' carbon footprint next time you travel you can for example use this one.

Here is a nice video showing the air traffic worldwide for 24 hours. Interesting!

Video found here.


  1. 2004 was the last time I flew anywhere, ever. :)

    1. Wow! That's great! I wish I could say the same for certain but with my boyfriend's family in Spain, flying does come in handy. But we'll see, I will update on if & how we travel on the blog :-)
