Google is – who would have thought it – the largest search engine in the world with over 3.5 billion search queries daily.

Vacation is one of the best times of the year. We want to enjoy ourselves and not think about the downsides of traveling. These are brought about by mass tourism: greenhouse gas emissions, increasing pollution and more consumption of resources.
