用心聆听自然的声音,用爱感受别样的风情——走近生态旅游者。


How can travellers get the most out of their holidays?

American Connie Blaine, 21, thinks she has found the answer.

Ever since she did a report on Peru (秘鲁) in the sixth grade, Blaine wanted to visit the South American country. For years, her love of Peruvian music, interest in the ancient Inca (印加人) people and the rainforest made her want to go there.

So, for her 20th birthday, Blaine gave herself a present — a trip to Peru.

"I didn't want to be part of a large group of tourists moving among the local people like locusts. I wanted to get a true Peruvian experience," she said.

So she chose to stay with a family for the first part of her trip. And it turned out to be one of the best parts. "I knew I was seeing the real Peru, not just a show for brainless tourists."

She practised her Spanish with the family and entertained the children with her video camera. She joined the women in their kitchens and helped prepare Peruvian meals while animals ran around her feet.

Another of her favourite parts was seeing the wild rainforest. Blaine was excited to see the animals in their natural habitat (栖息地). One evening with a small number of other tourists, she even floated silently down the river watching for crocodiles'eyes in the light of her guide's torch.

"It was far more than a travel experience. It was a life experience," she said.

Blaine is a typical ecological tourist. An ordinary tourist visits a country and asks: "What has this country got for me?" But an eco-tourist visits a country and asks: "What can I give to this country?"

Eco-tourists travel to learn about different cultures and environments. They think education is as important as enjoying themselves on their holidays. They want people to better understand one another and to make the world a friendlier place.

"Leave only footprints, and take only photographs" is a good thing for any eco-tourist to remember.
