Trying to travel more sustainably? We get it. If you’re tropics bound and Saint Lucia is your destination, consider Calabash Cove Resort and Spa, where new, seasonal vegetarian and vegan menu options are now available. Plastic bottles have been abolished and guests are served their choice of still or sparkling from glass bottles. An all-vegan dinner menu at the resort’s Windsong Restaurant features delicious choices such as tempura cauliflower bites, pan-seared tofu, vegetable stroganoff and grilled cinnamon pineapple.

The resort itself is comprised of 26 tranquil villas, all exuding traditional Caribbean appeal and offering a host of green features. Among them: All hot water is heated via solar energy, and lighting is supplied by energy-efficient LED fixtures. The property has its own on-site water treatment system, and recycled water is used for irrigation. Fruits and vegetables are sourced from local producers when available, and used kitchen oils are collected and repurposed to heat laundry water. Additionally, grass cuttings are mulched and composted on the property’s grounds, and kitchen waste provides meals to the pigs on local farms.

If you’ve pointed your compass toward Costa Rica, Las Catalinas is a destination village that’s car-free and committed to green initiatives. A robust composting program is part of that, as well as nature-themed immersions featuring horses and chickens. The guided, two- hour Las Catalinas’ La Estancia Equine Experience takes guests via horseback though tropical dry forests to the beach along the seashore. Along the way, guests have the opportunity to learn about Las Catalinas’ Collective Impact and its efforts in the realm of climate resistance, regenerative agriculture and regenerative tourism. The equine experience also includes refreshments and a visit to a chicken coop.

As we pulled into the small town of Schwangau, we were greeted by two breathtaking castles, Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau. To our delight, our hotel, AMERON Neuschwanstein Alpsee Resort & Spa, was situated between the two. The best part? I had views of both castles from my room.

Global City Guidebook: Rotterdam

Situated about one hour from Amsterdam, Rotterdam, the second-largest city in The Netherlands and Europe’s largest seaport, is the more futuristic city of the pair. Rather than rebuild as it was before, following its near-destruction in World War II, Rotterdam looked ahead, and its extraordinary architecture is a result. The city has always focused on healthier living and working environments, and today it engages in climate-adaptive urban projects. Two areas harken back to old Rotterdam: Delfshaven (Delft Harbor) and Oude Haven (Old Harbor). Rotterdam is always alive, especially in springtime.
