Amsterdam to Albufeira by Train

When I calculated my impact last year, I knew something had to change. I was doing quite well, because I live vegan and buy most of my stuff secondhand, but flying seemed to be a major issue. I could fly and still have the amount of eco-points to live a sustainable life. But, I want to live as sustainable as I can, so that means the less negative impact, the better. So, I decided to quit flying by plane! But, I am going on a holiday this year! By train. Today I’ll tell you how I will travel from Amsterdam to Albufeira by train.

I flew for the last time

Yes, you’re reading that title all right. I went flying, on a plane. Since I figured this’ll come across as very weird, why Romee?!, since it is far from sustainable, I want to dedicate a full blogpost to it today. I preach it all the time: flying is bad for the environment. I even wrote a full blogpost about it a long time ago. And now, I took two flights, one from Amsterdam to Tenerife and one back. Why the heck did I do this? Should I not practice what I preach? And so I am saying: I flew for the last time.

Trying to stop flying

Today it’s time to share a confession, one you’re not going to like. Because today I’m sharing about flying. The past years I have flown a lot. At least once a year, sometimes more.

However, my intention is to try to stop flying.
