Massive crowds of tourists are not only a pain to deal with as a visitor, but they can be hugely problematic for the locals as well. So how can we, as socially-responsible travelers, help fight overtourism? Be part of the solution rather than the problem by opting for off-season adventures, infusing as much of your trip cost as you can into local businesses and accommodations, and exploring alternatives to overcrowded destinations.
Traveling in a group or with a partner means you’ve got a built-in trip photographer at your side from start to finish, but what do you do when you’re traveling alone? Luckily, snapping those IG-worthy candids by yourself is easier than you’d think. With the right gear and a little know-how, you’ll come home with fantastic memories of your solo trip and the stunning photos to match.
No more worn-out duffle bags, no more waiting in security lines, no more wasting time at the airport! If we want to be smart professionals who are always on the go and experience the world, we need to start acting like it!
