Example text

Thomas Cook organised his first fee-paying trip in 1841 as secretary of the Midland Temperance Association, with 570 members travelling from Leicester to Loughborough (Holloway, 1998). As Page (1999) remarks, it is rather ironic that the package tour now thrives on an image of sun, sea, sex and booze. By the 1860s Cook had already developed tours to Europe and America, and in 1869 offered the first escorted tour to the Holy Land (Boorstin, 1961). In his first nine years of business, Thomas Cook handled more than one million customers.

Already one American company ‘Zeaghram Space Voyages’ has sold more than 250 places at £60,000 each to visit space, and plans are already developed for the construction of a space resort having room for approximately 100 guests by the year 2017 (TTG, 1999).

Not only did this rural–urban migration have the effect of distancing people from direct contact with nature, it also led to changes in established community structures. Subsequently, perceptions of what were desirable landscapes began to change, and for some sociologists the dominance of the city as a place in which to reside became associated with the isolation of the individual.
