People like their comfort zones and planning to travel to a disaster-shaken country adds a significant dilemma to one’s travel plans. If we were to concentrate on the positives, there are actually perks hidden in places that have recently felt the wrath of Mother Nature. To name one, volunteering opportunities- to help those in need.
I want to shed light on some really good experiences that can be learned from such visits.
From my travel experience to five of the major earthquake affected zones in Nepal, I feel it is worth sharing what I have learned and internalized. One thing to note is that I am trying to describe tourism not as a mere activity but as a responsible travel.
