To kick off this week’s episode of Talk Travel Asia podcast, Trevor talks about a time in the recent past when ‘ecotourism’ was the big travel buzzword. Though no one really knew exactly what it meant, it was thought to represent travel that was ‘green’ or perhaps sustainable; that is to say, low impact on the environment, perhaps. Eventually, the label seemed to become used to describe anything that occurred outdoors.
Trevor introduces the episode by talking about how, while their careers have been travel related, Scott and he still haven’t seen it all. People often assume because of their jobs they’ve been everywhere and seen everything but the reality isn’t that simple. Scott agrees that there are never enough hours in a day, weeks in a month, and months in a year for travel.
