I was disappointed to wake up yesterday and see the news; political dramas around the world, deaths thanks to drink driving and drug overdoses.

Another horrible terrorist attack in Istanbul.

Disheartened and feeling like 2017 would be just as bleak as its predecessor, I ignored all those New Year’s Resolution posts on Facebook and formulated my own question:

Instead of asking what your personal goals are for the coming months, how about we focus on the larger picture. What would you like to see improve worldwide in 2017? And, if possible, how can we as travellers start making those changes?
