Mattia on a boat looking out
Feb 1, 2021

To boat or not to boat?

We try to avoid flying for trips within Europe. There are many options that produce less CO2 like bus, train or car sharing. This time I had to drive and took a boat but after staring at the big chimneys farting out black smoke for nearly 24 consecutive hours I wonder whether ferries are actually any better than flying.
