Travel is an incredible luxury (carbon-wise), so I hardly ever go anywhere, and it's a big deal when I do. I have enough fun & relaxing places to be in British Columbia, so the only things that can motivate me to get on a plane are family and spiritual gatherings....

Heathrow Airport, England

Experienced By: lamundsen
