Sustainable travel means a trip that changes one's point of view upon returning home. I took this photo at Harbour Island, a remote island in the Bahamas. The people their conduct simple insular lives and many of them never set foot off the island. What the photo unveiled to me is that beauty is relative. Most anyone from America visiting the tree would agree the sight is unique and incredible, yet to the locals, it's just their backyard. That's something that changed my point of view of the world.
