Venice without cruise ships


I am a retired woman now. At last, I can spend my time travelling and enjoying myself with culture, nature, food, languages...
What a wonderful time I have spent strolling around Venice without cruise ships and thousands of people coming over every day. There are lots of tourists because it is a marvellous place but it has returned to being the joyful town it used to be.
Just the same in the fjords in Norway. These small villages can breathe at last.
I am eager to go on like this. I love getting to know new places and can’t wait to tell you about my new experiences.

For the future of tourism I hope that… we care about the environment.
If I could wish for anything at all, I would… prefer cruise ships far from certain fragile spots.
If I were a powerful politician, I would… not allow speculation and building without control.
