Hey! Hola! Hallo! Salut! Olá!
I am Julia, 28 years old, originally from Germany, environmentalist and positive thinker! I am also a passionate traveler and scholar of the world, salsa dancer, cyclist and badminton player, vegetarian.
I obtained a Master’s Degree in Environmental Studies and Sustainability Science in Sweden in 2012. I lived and worked the last 1,5 years in French Guiana (a French overseas department in South America) working on financing of sustainability projects, mostly renewable energies.
My interests in sustainability turn around social entrepreneurship, the social and environmental impact of renewable energies, sustainable consumption and corporate social responsibility.
From 08 July 2014 onwards I want to travel the North of South America – starting from French Guiana (where I lived and worked for 1,5 years until July 2014) passing through Suriname, Guyana, Venezuela, Trinidad and Colombia – by road and in the most ecological fashion (by hitch-hiking, using local and eco-tourism) – this is to say, to travel in a respectful manner that allows to get to know the people and culture of each place I will be going to.
I want to use this blog to learn more about the country I am traveling through myself, to share this knowledge with fellow travelers and to eventually create a movement of environmentally conscious travelers and change makers., but also to spread light on innovative initiatives
