A new bucket list destination for travel
“This is a Sponsored post, but all opinion is my own”
A quote by Mark Twain that goes as “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did.” and it is so true. I am now in my 30’s and already regret some things that I have not done in my life. The things that were once possible, yet I missed doing them, one of them is traveling. I grew up in India, a beautiful country with lots to see and places to travel, but with regret, I have only seen a few. Both my parents worked, and our lives were busy around school and studies that we hardly ever traveled. Since my daughter was born I made a promise to take a trip yearly with my family so that my daughter does not have the same regret that I have.
I have a bucket list of places I want to visit in my lifetime, some have been crossed and some have not been. Some from the list may never be crossed. Yet I keep on adding places to my list that really appeals me, and one recent addition is Kalu Yala. I found out about Kalu Yala a few months back and have already added it to my bucket list. It is because I like places with natural beauty, when traveling I would rather visit somewhere peaceful and natural than busy tourist places and cities. Which is why Kalu Yala got a spot on my list.
Kalu Yala is an impressive new idea, it is a village that is being built in a Panamanian river valley from scratch, to bring together entrepreneurs, artists, scientists and modern-day romantics. The concept seems primitive, but its conception will help our earth by creating a place that will produce significantly less pollution.
A comparison chart of Carbon footprint shown here actually tell all the tales of the positive impact that Kalu Yala has on fighting pollution. The more I follow their progress on Social Media, the truth about kalu yala becomes more transparent. I really like that they also have an Institute where they teach various subjects, not in a conventional way, but in a more practical and sustainable way and solving their problems.
Even if you do not plan a visit there or is interested to study with them you can still follow the progress of the village on their social media page. The picture above, taken from their Social media page, is really inspiring, it shows a sitting bench made by supplies available in their surroundings.
