Bonjour! It was only a couple of weeks that I paid a visit to the beautiful city of Paris. The city of love and so much more. A city like no other. A city full of culture, commerce, and contentment. The nature of my visit was an artistic one, but it ended up being much more than that, and within my 3 short days in the city I explored the Parisian way of life.. Each of my days would start with a metro journey, but unlike my usual gruelling commute to work, I enjoyed these...

50 years after independence some counties in Kenya are marginalized and far from mainstream development. Article 204 of the Kenyan constitution provides for an equalization fund of 0.5% of the national budget to cover service provision and infrastructure development in marginalized areas. However, the rift of development between counties in Kenya is still wide, and this begs the question; who is to blame for the cases of insecurity, food insecurity, poverty levels of up to 84%, poo...

Our idea is to promote multiculturalism through tourism.

And it’s this information that leads many people to believe in certain stereotypes, especially towards certain cultures and countries. We believe that you have to actually visit the place before you can “judge” it, and get the chance to be expo...

What can I say, South Africa has always been that country for me. I want to go there so badly. After I read the very well written article by Aulia (http://bit.ly/LlBZjH) from Indonesia who was talking about her love for India, I thought to myself, "hey, why not pen down something about my most favorite destination as well." This thought brought back all those wonderful reasons I have for South Africa. Have you ever heard someone speak zulu? They have this thing where they do...

This morning as I ate my breakfast in front of the television, I watched one of the programs on MetroTv. At first, I thought that this program was just another travel program, but as I watched it longer, I found a unique vocabulary that I have never heard before. It is voluntourism.

Well, this is how the story goes: The host visited Papua, one of the...

Child pornography is the consequence of the exploitation or sexual abuse perpetrated against a child. It can be defended as any means by depicting or promoting sexual abuse of children including print and/or audio centered around any kind of sexual act. The fact that sexual tourism is becoming widespread and continually practiced is deeply concerning because children are especially vulnerable. Children are directly affected by sexual tourism. Concerns about the growth of child pornography is gre...
