Hopineo présente Florie Thielin, HopAmbassadeur Amérique Latine


presents Florie Thielin, HopAmbassador HopTour of Latin America 2014-15 It would be a world with more kindliness, more respect between people in which we would not be scared to talk to our neighbors. A world, also, less materialist, in which we give priority to experiences, encounters, rather than buying always more things for example. It would be a tourism which would be distributed on all the territory, and which would benefit numerous small actors. It would be a tourism, also, where all the hosting facilities respect the environment through their construction, their operations, sorting out waste, etc… And also, very important, with the respect of their employees, and the surrounded community. And at the traveler’s level, it’s a traveler which adapts himself to the natural environement and local culture, and not the contrary. Hopineo, for me, it’s a HopTour in Latin America, from Mexico to Argentina, during 1 year and a half, during which I collect and share the good practices in responsible tourism met in the visited hotels, ecolodges, projects of community-based tourism, making short videos which are published on YouTube and also on www.hopineo.org I offer also to share good tips in marketing to these small hotels to help them to get a better visibility on the Internet, so the travelers can find them more easily. And all that in exchange for room and board. It allows me to travel longer without spending so much, otherwise I could not travel so much time without the Hopineo project. And this is above all such a great personal and profesionnal experience. Personal, because in all the places that I visit, I meet hotels owners and their employees with whom I can spend very special moments because I’m not only a traveler, a tourist, I become a bit their colleague for a few days. And at the profesionnal level, I learn a lot, as I work in tourism, this experience with Hopineo, this HopTour, allows me to learn a lot about the practices which are already implemented by all these hotels, it’s like plenty of small internships, it’s like a master after my master, it’s like an extension of my studies, a wonderful experience. And I’m glad to have joined Hopineo. I had already the idea of this Tour at the beginning, alone in my corner, but the fact that with Hopineo, all together, all the travelers, we can get together, in order to centralize all these good practices, and to share them having more visibility, I find this really great, so that’s a beautiful adventure 🙂 All together for a better tourism with Hopineo!
