How does a woman who transverses the globe on a regular basis have the nerve to call her blog ‘No Impact Girl’? Well while Louise Southerden confesses to the tongue in cheek name-she does make sure that her impact on the planet, as an award winning travel writer is as little as she can possibly make it.
In this episode of MHP Louise confesses as well to her accidental fall into her beloved profession, talks about her first cruise ship experience, and some of her favourite trips-from trekking in Mongolia, sea kayaking in Papua New Guinea and expeditions to the Arctic, Antarctic and everything in between-using every mode of transport imaginable.
Louise shares her tips for how travellers can reduce their carbon footprints , her belief that travel makes people care more about the planet, and the importance of tuning out to tune in.
Louise Southerden has been named Australian travel writer of the year 4 years in a row. She writes for numerous publications, and is the author of three books; Japan: A Working Holiday Guide, Surf’s Up: The Girl’s Guide to Surfing and Adventures on Earth-an interactive collection of her best ever adventure travel stories including her wonderful images from around the world.
