This is Blog 6 in my A-Z Blogseries:
Yesterday I gave us all a break by writing something sweet (literally) and simple. No politics in there, whatsoever.
For the letter F I had several ideas:
- Filter bubbles
- Facts vs Fake news
- Freedom of Speech
The first two already featured in previous blogs and the third and fourth are too heavy and complicated for a quick ABC-post. All though the penultimate option was a close contender until the last minute (because, what is friendship really?) I chose for the latter.
Last year I travelled quite a bit:
- North Finland (January)
- Denmark (June)
- France (August)
- Londen (September)
- Spain (November)
- Ireland (December)
With the exception of my trip to France all of these voyages were made by airplane, which means I have a ginormous ecological footprint. I feel bad about this.
Apparently not bad enough though, because for 2019 I have two new trips to faraway destinations planned and maybe a third (but this one I could try to organize with some other means of transportation).
It’s a flying shame!
Mea culpa. Mother earth, please forgive me…
Awareness is the first step, right? So, here I am. I’ve reached level 1.
Now I’d rather not t stay here too long, on the one side because a gnawing conscience is annoying and on the other side because… well… because I actually want to do better.
So, what would level 2 entail?
No more flying until the airline industry makes cleaner air-travel possible, I guess!
I must admit it hurts a bit to think about it, but I am willing to go there (right after I visit my brother in Canada this October)…

You’re thinking through super-serious subjects, introducing them with a light touch but without being flippant. Not easy to do!
Thanks Josna! The A to Z series is actually great for this as I usually take weeks to finish a thought process and put into publishable words. This forces me to keep it simple and maybe pave the way for more elaborate blogs later. 🙂
