Were ever we are from, we nearly all at some stage and at least once a year usually , end up being tourists and we far to often do not consider the effect we have on the area we are visiting.
Since the Corona virus the impact of tourism and indeed the benefits it may bring have been brought into question .
The impact on local amenities can be dramatic and in parts of Wales and the rest of the UK a great strain on our Health services for which the local Health Boards must often beat the costs.
The news that Gwynedd for example is being overwhelmed by tourists, politicians have warned the first minister is not unexpected.
The BBC reports that
"It's very palpable in the community. People are finding it difficult to understand the rules."
But Ffion Jones, who owns the Pwyth Pistyll gift shop in Pwllheli, said businesses need the extra visitors after lockdown.
"It's very busy. The last days have been the busiest I've had since opening six years ago," she said.
"I think it's needed especially after the whole lockdown situation because we're not going to have an economy if it carries on."
She added it was shopkeepers' responsibility to remind both locals and visitors about social distancing rules.
"I've seen so many posts on social media about 'us and them' and I don't think that's right," she said.
"Shops, little shops especially, need business. They want to grow, they want to boost the economy, they want staff. We have to adapt to it and grow. "
It is obviously as it always been a difficult balance.
How do you encourage Tourism but in a manner that does not ruin the very area that they are visiting and where dependency on tourism does not have in the end have a negative impact on the economy.
The issue of Second Homes is a prominent one as local people ironically , have to leave thier area because they cmmot afford to live there.
However as I said we are all potential tourists and we should not readily condemn others for what we do.
What we need is a Tourist Tax that could be together ending the legal loophole which allows second home owners to avoid paying council tax is costing North Wales local authorities millions in lost revenue give local authorities the chance to help local people find suitable housing in the place where they live.
But they also need jobs and not just in the (seasonal) tourists industry .
How e do this should be a priority for the next Senedd.
