Eurobarometer Special Surveys – European Commission.

For me, there were no great surprises and I started to question the value of this type of research. It is not clear to me how the research influences policy, so that matters improve for the citizens of Europe.

I should clarify that I am pro-European but favor greater national power and less bureaucracy in the EU.

Any views?

BBC – Travel – Are there too many tourists? : Eco-tourism, Cambodia.

Personally, I do not think that it’s purely a question of number of tourists. For me, it is much more about the behavior of the tourists and how responsible they are.

I also think that it is the responsibility of governments to protect history and the environment for future generations.

What do you think?
