Travel defines who I am and I doubt there is anything that will ever stop me exploring the wonders of the world. Having said that, I’m fully aware of the downside of tourism. Back in 1998 I was on my first backpacking journey around the world. Like so many others, I wanted to discover the authentic, genuine places of the world. Though I did experience wonderful things, the uncomfortable fact struck me that even the most beautiful places had in many ways already lost their soul.
This troubled me and began my efforts to get to grips with the issues of tourism. During my travels, I saw that tourism is in many cases as a new form of colonialism. It takes what it needs and cares little about the consequences on the local economy,
environment, culture, nature, animals and people. And it does all this for the sake of higher profits. The more I travelled, the more this bothered me. I therefore decided to study tourism to get a bigger picture of it.
