Why are you getting on a heavily-polluting aeroplane when you have so much to see just in the neighbourhood around your own home. Have you gone hiking in the local hiking trails? Have you considered camping? Have you enjoyed the scenic beauty just outside your city limits? There is so much to explore, and many "well traveled" people can't say they've experienced the pleasures that their own local regions have to offer. Take a stay-cation and by doing so, take in that unseen pleasure AND reduce your carbon footprint to boot!
