Description

‘There’s no end to it, all that attention to over-tourism.’ Before a single question has even been asked, Geographer Arie Stoffelen launches into the topic, sighing almost. The reports about mass tourism, increasingly referred to as ‘over-tourism’, were never-ending this summer. Stoffelen thinks that this is only the beginning. ‘Travel has become a kind of human right.’
