Just ‘pack and go’
Posted on: Wed 27 Feb 2019
Slow tourism, cycling tourism, local tourism, walking tourism—all favourites of Tony Wheeler (Co-Founder of Lonely Planet), and prolific traveller.
Tony shares his reflections on why we travel, what we learn (including about ourselves), and how travel can open so many doors to be a great driver of understanding between cultures, history and events. Tony also weighs up the damage it can cause. Not only through ugly tourists, but also ugly tourist organisations, as well as the growing impact of mass tourism or loving a destination to death. On balance though, he talks about the real positive of travel, both for economies and individuals.
