World Tourism Day

Real Estate Agent

Today is World Tourism Day.  Tourism is an important part of the economy in many countries.  In fact, it is the main source of income in lesser developed countries along with their export of various crops for example, bananas, sugar, and cocoa to name a few.

A 2004 UN World Tourism Organization explained that "tourism can alleviate poverty through the creation of small and medium size tourism businesses".  As it creates new jobs, it can raise "environmental, cultural and social awareness".

But touring our marvelous and beautiful earth and becoming acquainted with its wonders and its people, is an impressive achievement especially when one has planned and saved for a while. 

Its a wonderful opportunity to travel
see the sights, take pictures, taste the cuisine and talk to folks.  So, be safe ,and  have a memorable day in your travels today.

Hi Dee, What a great thaught for those travelers out there. I wish I could be among them, but like Ann I am chained to my desk today. I aspire to take my wife somewhere warm this winter, and am working toward that end:)

Dee, I hadn't hear of World Tourism Day, but it's a great idea - with a little help, many people will be able to help themselves.  Plus, we get to learn so much about different places and cultures.

Dee, here we have the incoming tourists from the UK, Germany and Italy of late.  Me, I only made it about three fourths of a mile, down to the beach for a slight refresher.

Don't wish, hope and plan.  Hope means to wait eagerly and to expect something good. 

My sentiments exactly.

Good for you, I hope you enjoy your trip.

Hi Juli,
It is fun to plan a trip and travel to it.  And then you have the added benefits as you said to learn about the place, culture and its people.

Hi Kevin,
While at the beach, plan a trip to the UK, Germany or Italy or all three!  I hear Europe is lovely this time of year.
