Very cool read. The "touristification" of life is a problem we can all sense, but it's hard to really grasp. Looking into its origins, tourism itself (for leisure travel - something fairly modern!) is certainly a good place to start.

In my travels, I'm often disappointed with the lack of adventure - go to Rome in the summer and you'll be and feel like a tourist. Everything is prepared for your arrival. You are spectator in all of it. On the other hand, adventure for the sake of adventure is sometimes equally empty...
