Don't Travel to These Places in 2019
There are loads of things you shouldn't do in 2019. You shouldn’t, say, eat a ton of jellybeans and go run a marathon. That’s just not a great idea. Consider, instead, where you will leave a footprint.
Traveling is great; it’s good for economies, good for the soul, and good for humanity. What's not great is traveling somewhere to see something unique and breathtaking, only to find a gazillion other people vying for the same photo of the Mona Lisa. Neither is jet-setting off to the tropics, only to find that humanity’s garbage — literal garbage — has ruined it.
As a result, there are some destinations that — while historic, necessary, and beautiful in a purely idealistic sense — should be avoided this year due to the negative affects of overtourism. When planning your vacation for 2019, these are the spots that you should avoid.
