Sustainable Forces of Tradition
Back 2 Basics
We believe that travel can be a transformative tool for travellers and communities, as well as for the conservation of our planet.
Countdown to Spring 2024
Our Back 2 Basics Team will set out for a journey in convoy overland, crossing 16 European countries including Turkey, travelling approximately 18,000 km. With the words sustainable, tradition & basics forefront in their minds, they will take you off the beaten track, away from mass tourism to discover remote villages that have held true to their values and traditions, in order to maintain a self-sufficient way of life in balance with nature.
The Team will meet with village elders, famers, tradespeople and community members who have rejected industrialization, making a conscious decision to continue using traditional methods which hold true to their values in the protection of the environment. We will document on film the many choices, possible solutions & alternatives we have, plus the costs, rewards and sacrifices we must make in order to travel and live sustainably.
Our Goal & Vision
To produce special media projects along our journey to help our followers, viewers, and readers make the right choices when they travel: journeys that are authentic, with genuine experiences that enrich the lives of both those who wander and those who are visited.
With this project we want to lead by example and make a meaningful effort in the preservation of our planet. Through this project, Adventure4ever will showcase ways in which future travel can remain exciting, enjoyable and fun, while at the same time providing an opportunity to learn and discover how our travel choices can and will make a difference in the future of travel & tourism, paving the way to a healthier environment.
We believe in the change that tourism needs; the necessary step from consuming to contributing.
Media & Storytelling
Adventure4ever is currently shifting gears, making a big move toward the realization of special media projects that are relevant and of current interest to not only a large audience, but a global one. The root from which our projects develop is focused on the environment, providing new ideas and alternatives for exciting responsible and environmentally conscious travel in the future.
During this journey, we will be creating content, publishing on social media, and engaging with all our followers on the steps we are taking in our quest of sustainable and thoughtful travel. All our content will contribute to our final project, a documentary film series on the places we will travel, the people we will meet, the steps we will take to lead a conscious and sustainable journey, and the impact that can be made. We hope that all our stories, content, and the docu-series will serve as a guidebook of sorts for sustainable & conscientious travel.
Asking the Important Questions
We're a team of travel, adventure, & media experts journeying to unique sustainable communities where the forces of tradition have fought industrialisation & preserved the methods of the past.
This project will challenge us to make the most sustainable choices possible on our journey while discovering & learning the many ways in which we can all take new steps toward practicing a more sustainable lifestyle.
Asking ourselves the questions why, where & how we travel is of the upmost importance in a time when our environment is silently screaming for us to adapt our ways & protect that which has been given to us.
With this project we are addressing the buzz words of not only the past decades, but those that we all hear today; sustainability, storytelling, and the big five R's - reduce, reuse, repurpose, recycle, and refuse. Understanding these words is not difficult. Taking action now is the most important. With this project, Adventure4ever is taking action to help us all recognize that exciting, responsible travel is still possible. We can attain this vision by learning about the many alternatives and opportunities available to all of us in order to further contribute to a healthier future.
Our answer to the question 'Why we are traveling' is clear. We want to illustrate, to the largest audience possible, the many alternatives and choices we all have available to us to make our future travel meaningful, not only for ourselves but for the future of our environment.
We have chosen overland travel and have questioned different types of fuel, such as electric, biodiesel, solar, hydrogen & benzene. We have questioned which is the most viable, and accessible, as well as considering carbon emissions. With so many new developments in fuel & alternate power sources today, we have decided to challenge them all with the hopes of finding the best solution for those embarking on a new adventure overland. We will test each source, along the same route and under similar circumstances, experiencing the pros and cons of each. Apart from the fuel, we will also bring you the facts and figures, the ways and means, challenges and solutions of how we, as a team, travel as sustainably as possible.
Our journey will take us to more remote locations where we can look back upon traditional methods and ways of life that support self-sustainable communities, taking from the land only that which is necessary and giving back that which allows it to thrive. We will spotlight and learn from the old ways, where traditional values and daily practices have remained much the same, allowing only new developments which are unharmful to the environment to be incorporated into their daily lives. We will also highlight community efforts whereby the people have raised their voices to address concerns and as a result have come together with a collective thinking on how each one of us can contribute to environmental rebirth. We will also visit urban pocket communities which have made the decision to manage their own energy, create their own agriculture and become self-sustainable even within an urban centre.
