Louisiana's Cajun Coast: Canoeing and Cavorting in the Swamp

Between hurricane damage and oil spills Louisiana has had its fair share of disaster. But now the Cajun Coast is in recovery and despite some setbacks Louisiana is pulling tourists back, luring them in with beautiful swamps, fantastic fishing and delicious, safe, seafood.

Deep in Louisiana’s bayous lies a secret. While New Orleans may have clubs, bars and other metropolitan attractions the backwaters of the bayous hides the magic of Louisiana, the heart of Cajun traditions.

Man on the River: A Journey from London to Istanbul

Right now in the French countryside one man is showing the world the meaning and importance of sustainable travel. The Man on the River Project is following Giacomo de Stefano as he rows his way across Europe. Traveling across ancient and near-forgotten waterways Giacomo will traverse the rivers, canals, and locks linking London to Istanbul.

Together with a rotating team of friends and helpers, both on board and on shore, Giacomo will travel through 15 countries and 5,200km across Europe on a rowing adventure to raise awareness about the importance of rivers both to the environment and to human culture.

Giving Back in Ometepe: Entiende's Life Changing Travel EcoService Tours Offer More than Sightseeing

Hard at work under the Nicaraguansun a group of men and women, aged 20 to mid 70’s works, bent over, beating soil filled bags together as they build a home. This isn’t what you think, these people may be working hard but they are also on vacation.

If travel has become nothing more than sight-see, shop, eat, repeat as necessary, then you might be in the market for change. Many people travel but few people really get to understand a culture, a place, or even themselves. For many what is missing from their travels is purpose.

Entiende EcoService Adventures is all about purpose, determined to give back, get connected and get inspired, this is a different sort of travel, a travel where you learn more about yourself, the culture and help others, all in the name of fun and the spirit of adventure.
