Mindful travel is about being present, curious, and respectful when traveling. It is being both inwardly and outwardly mindful.
A mindful traveler is someone “who’s respectful of the culture, who’s not trying to impose their own culture, and who’s willing to view the experience through a beginner’s eyes rather than coming into it with expectations," says Diana Winston, Director of Mindfulness Education at UCLA’s Mindful Awareness Research Center.
