Travolution@ITT - Part 12 - Health warning

The rest of this year’s ITT conference has been taken up various issues, but has focused less on the online travel sector.

This is perhaps a welcome relief for those blown away by the early presentations of the day, which gave an indication as to where the industry is heading – and how complicated yet vital the internet has become.

Doctor Thomas Stuttaford, a renowned practitioner in the travel sector, has frightened and amused delegates with comments on gap year and student travellers in the jungle and some of the horrifying things that happen in terms of general health when tourists flee the shores of Britain.

[Metal note: stop glancing nervously at the scar on right arm from where an insect emerged during a – surprise, surprise – trip to the jungle in South East Asia as a student]
