Today’s Solutions: September 25, 2022

When Will Vibert’s European work visa was closing in on its expiration date, the Canadian was reluctant to travel back to Vancouver via plane. Vibert had been confronted by the flight shaming campaigns that had shone a harsh light on the climate impact of air travel, and like so many of his peers, Vibert didn’t want to be a part of the problem.

That’s when Vibert decided to do something rather unorthodox: he booked a cabin on a giant cargo ship traveling from Hamburg to Halifax, Nova Scotia. From there, his plan was to take a train across snow-covered land to Vancouver.

Vibert expected a long, tiresome journey, with visions of spending grueling nights with his face in a barf bag. His experience, however, couldn’t have been more enjoyable. Vibert’s tale of traveling slowly from Hamburg to Vancouver is a fantastic read, one that gives a new perspective on the beauty of slow, eco-friendly travel.
