Many years ago booking a holiday was simple; you went to the travel agent’s office, collected far too many colourful brochures on far too many places, sat browsing through them for hours, always dreaming of the destinations you couldn’t afford and wondering what five-star hotels looked like from the inside. Then, once you and your family or friends had passed them around to see if the choice was unanimous you’d go back to your trusted travel agent and book the holiday, always just leaving a deposit and paying the rest in installments.
Then someone invented in the internet and the process of booking a holiday changed forever.
Now, although it should be oh-so-much-easier, it’s not always. The internet is flooded with ideas and agents and if you’re anything like me you’ll spend so much time scouring the interminable possibilities that it seems pulling your own teeth out would be simpler than actually making a decision.
But never fear, dear eco travellers, for Ecotourism Logue is here. As your one-stop guide to ecotourism and travel it seems only fair that we offer some guidance to make the whole process much less painful.
