This Month's Reader Comments

I pulled this from a posting on the Urban Dictionary's website regarding VolunTourism. I thought you all should have a look. Let me know your thoughts...

Heaven help me, yet another nasty new noun, the unholy marriage of "volunteer" and "tourism".

WEEKLY WEBCAST

Tuesdays 10am ET/7am PT

Voluntourism, an act carried out by "voluntourists", is when hoardes of - generally - the great unwashed backpacker brigade descend on a place to have a jolly nice holiday - usually at precious little cost to themselves - and do the occasional bit of good work.

Looks good on one's CV as a gap year activity.

Voluntourist 1: Shall we go to Khao Lak to engage in a spot of voluntourism?

Voluntourist 2: No, tsunami voluntourism is old hat now. All the bars are closed and hardly anyone is living in the houses built, anyway.

Voluntourist 1: Good point. (pauses) Sierra Leone?

Vouluntourist 2: Are you insane?
