Exploring for the sake of exploring is a distinctly human thing to do. For some of us it needn’t mean a voyage to remote lands, it might just mean going on our jollies. Travel companies urge us to “Explore! Discover! Be inspired!” But is that fly-and-flop package-holiday really exploring? Not according to the dictionary definition, which is “to traverse or range over for the purpose of discovery”.
Unfamiliar food, excessive booze and too many hours spent cooking in the sun means an upset stomach can be a summer holiday inevitability, but a rise in fraudulent travel insurance sickness claims means Brits now risk being banned from all-inclusive breaks altogether.
