In Paris, the Louvre Museum closed for a day this week because workers said the crowds were too big to handle. In the Himalayas, climbers at Mount Everest are concerned that the peak has gotten too crowded, contributing to the highest death toll in years. In cities and destinations around the world, from Barcelona to Bali, "overtourism" has become a year-round problem. When fields of wildflowers in Lake Elsinore, California, were overrun this spring by tourists seeking the perfect photo, the city tweeted bluntly about the impact of traffic jams and trampled hillsides: "We know it has been miserable and has caused unnecessary hardships for our entire community." Last summer, it was a sunflower field outside of Toronto that got trampled after becoming Instagram-famous. A mashup of discount airlines, inexpensive Airbnb rooms and social media shares have brought the blessing of tourist dollars and the growing curse of noisy crowds and even dangerous conditions to places once known for … [Read more...] about 4 ways to be a good traveler in the age of overtourism

A sudden shower sends a crowd of them sprinting for cover into a 360-degree theater tucked beneath a simulated mine, where they stand for the duration of an 18-minute panoramic look at the natural and cultural wonders of Canada. Then they climb the steps back out and resume their wandering from one gift shop and attraction to another. Of all the impressions people bring home with them from a sweaty, soggy trip to Disney World, there’s one that likely seldom makes the list: It was good for me.But a growing body of research shows that traveling — which even in its … [Read more...] about Traveling is good for you, both physically and mentally
My husband and I are both 65, and we are frequent travelers outside of the U.S. We both applied for the Global Entry program, and I was approved. My husband, however, was denied, he was told in a letter in May, because he had two incidents on his record from 1968 and 1970. The first was a shoplifting arrest that was the result of a misunderstanding, and the charge was dropped. The second was a petty theft charge: He and his college roommate took a chair from a university dumpster to put in their room. They were put under supervision for five months and told that their record would be expunged. My husband was asked to provide Global Entry with documentation of these outcomes. For the first incident, the clerk of Cook County, Ill., provided a letter saying the records for these types of petty offenses are destroyed after 15 years. For the second incident, we provided a letter from the Chicago Police Department with respect to the supervision. Since that time, my husband has had a … [Read more...] about Global Entry program turns this traveler down, then reconsiders–and here’s why
Rick Kelleher is a big, white-haired, crisply presented man who looks very much the way you’d expect a Boston Irish power broker to look. If you found yourself sitting next to him on a plane, you might notice how he kept the conversation flowing naturally and emphasized his points with the physicality of a great salesman, dramatically raising his eyebrows and cocking his head. On this morning, Kelleher is seated at a back table in the lobby restaurant of the elegant Boston Harbor Hotel, where the server knows exactly how he likes his house-smoked salmon. He carries himself as if he owns the place, and, in a way, he does.
