Unsustainable Vacation

I have the good fortune of getting to pop around between Central Europe’s finest cities all year round. From my home to Amsterdam, to Berlin, to Paris, to Brussels, and everything in between. One thing I notice is each city’s effort to adopt environmentally sound policies in areas like waste management, energy use, fuel, architecture, etc.
Yet as I sit here in Portugal’s vacation paradise, where millions of Europeans come for vacations every year throughout the year, I see a different effort. Unsustainable vacationing, iresponsible development, and little care.
