Travel Faraway in Melbourne

5 ways to be a conscious traveller

Cheap airfares are making overseas travel a possibility for more people than ever before. This is really exciting, as travel is the best education we can give ourselves to become informed global citizens. But on the other hand, no one ever really teaches us how we should travel...

Into The Calais Jungle

6,000 migrants live in the bitter cold limbo of the Calais 'Jungle in France.' Volunteering there this weekend at a clinic run by The Hummingbird Project, I couldn't believe the inhumane conditions these people live in so close to home.
