Now is the time. If you want to make travel better; if you want to make the world better – now is the time.
If you've ever looked at overtourism, at hordes and hordes of visitors descending on the same destinations, if you've watched hundreds of aeroplanes criss-crossing the sky, if you've seen piles of rubbish and seen homes demolished and figured it was a problem then now, friends, is the time.
We need to change travel. We need to make it better. And though it's fine to look to government regulators and large travel companies and expect them to do what's necessary, the real power lies in our hands.
So the big questions are: what can you do? And how can you do it? How do you make the travel world a better place?
On this episode of Flight of Fancy, the Traveller.com.au podcast, I'm joined by travel writers Ute Junker and Louise Southerden, and we take a hard look at the travel world and figure out what we're doing wrong. We're taking stock in this time of crisis and deciding how we can reboot this thing, how we can bounce back in a way that's responsible, sustainable, and ultimately good.
