I have conflicting thoughts on tourism and world travelers.
On one hand, I love history and reaching out to people from different cultures to learn about them. On the other hand, the harmful impacts of tourism (e.g. ecotourism), the servitude of locals, how they are forced to put on cultural exhibitions for tourists, etc all trouble me.
I was wondering what the community's thoughts were on this. Or perhaps you can share non-harmful ways you have gone about traveling in the past.
