keen to be green

Update posted by Stefan Lipp On Feb 17, 2019

During the last two months I've spent time in Thailand and Nepal with my family and volunteered in a Nepalese Mountain village. After a week without internet I found out that the bike is still sitting in Darwin and the earliest arrival date will be the 12th march. So right now I'm not sure wether to proceed with the shipping process of my solar powered electric cargo bike, or if I should just get a very simple and cheap setup in Singapore/Malaysia and continue soon...
Another topic that bugs me is that I "had to"/did fly several times in order to make these trips happen. So I kind of broke my word "not to fly until I'm home"... I'm grateful for having had these opportunities and I offset the emissions of course, but still.
Time... it's a very tricky topic. So is attachment. I really really want to be back in Nepal by May in order to plant many trees there, but this seems very unrealistic from this perspective. And it's hard to let go of it. But it might be the better option in the long run. Traveling quickly and traveling sustainably seem to contradict each other. "What else is possible?" I ask myself and the universe, longing for some direction and a good decision soon.
