We travel to make memories, meet new people, explore new cultures or to relax and boost our happiness. Regardless of our reason to explore beyond the horizon, our needs have collectively shaped the travel industry over the years. More and more people want to travel and as a consequence, overtourism has become a severe problem, causing more people to show up at your dream destination, looking for similar experiences.

For example: You and your family have been dreaming of taking a trip to Paris for years. You got time off work, booked your tickets and made a list of all the sights you want to visit. But, when you finally reach Paris and set off with your (extensive) bucket list, your experience goes downhill as you are waiting in line for hours to stand on top of the Eiffel Tower and another afternoon before you can enter the Louvre Museum. The demand is so high and the recources limited, making the city dirty, expensive and crowded. When you come home tired, and with only half of your bucket list crossed off, you ask yourself  “was this trip worth it?” 

It doesn’t have to be like this! When traveling with my wife, we also faced the problems mentioned above. Therefore, over the past couple of years, I have researched and organised information about traveling, which resulted in this book. How to Avoid Crowds gives you the knowledge and tips to navigate the crowds, by showing you how to travel smarter, smoother and safer.
