Credo of the Peaceful Traveler

Credo of the Peaceful Traveler

Grateful for the opportunity to travel and experience the world and because peace begins with the individual, I affirm my personal responsibility and commitment to:

  • Journey with an open mind and gentle heart
  • Accept with grace and gratitude the diversity I encounter
  • Revere and protect the natural environment which sustains all life
  • Appreciate all cultures I discover
  • Respect and thank my hosts for their welcome
  • Offer my hand in friendship to everyone I meet

Support travel services that share these views and act upon them and, by my spirit, words and actions, encourage others to travel the world in peace

-From the International Institute on Peace through Tourism

May we all learn to travel the world in peace…
