Prior to quitting my job to be a full-time travel blogger, I was a chemical engineer.
More specifically, I was a water engineer and worked in many different subsets of the industry from municipal water treatment and wastewater to oil and gas produced water purification.
To put it simply, water accessibility and drinkability has been an especially important issue to me for quite some time.
So, it should be no surprise that when I heard that Hostelling International USA launched the Million Gallon Challenge, I had to learn more. In partnering with them to share the story, I ended up learning quite a lot!
