Adventure Travel pioneers

Dedicated to responsible travel


I love reading about adventure travel pioneers - adventurers dedicated to travelling responsibly.

This section is dedicated to them - telling you about their stories, their causes and what makes these incredible people tick, brought to life with some breathtaking adventure photography.

Plus you'll get to find out:

  • What kind of gear these incredible adventurers carry
  • The most dangerous and scary situations they've been in
  • How their travels have changed them
  • Their most inspiring moments
  • Their advice to you
  • How to get involved

So live vicariously and get inspired! Who says armchair (or desk) travel isn't fun?

Get inspired by green travel pioneers Enora Nedelec and Guillaume Combot, as they tell me about WALKING across Africa, one step at a time.

Hi, my name is Melissa and I created this site together with photographer Christopher List to help spread awareness about green lifestyles and travel, so everyone can learn how easy it is to live in a sustainable way. Enjoy!

Brighter Planet's 350 Challenge


I wasn't sure what a permaculture design course was about, until I read through Melissa's fantastic blog! I've signed up and soon I'll be a PDC graduate too.

Kelly Richardson - Arizona

The link between personal responsibility and preserving our environment is becoming increasingly clear to me. Reading up on simple ways to be more eco-friendly in my life and travels has really helped me practice what I preach.

Dennis Howley - Namibia

I can't wait to follow Melissa and Chris' adventures in the Middle East and Africa. You guys inspire me!
