Ever since tourism became democratised, more and more people have the opportunity to travel for pleasure. But the tourist boom has created a tourism model where the true experience of being in contact with other cultures and places or engaging in activities that are nothing like the ones that are part of our day-to-day lives no longer prevails.
Package tours turn the experience into something tedious, predictable, and shockingly uniform. Hordes of travelers waste their time in cities, standing in endless lines to see things that don't interest them in the least, buying useless souvenirs, visiting places that look like photocopies of so many others.
