GETTING TO KNOW GHATOF

–Part 5

by Egi Gaisie

Somehow the set of associations I am introducing this week don’t have much issues with taxes, fees and policies as with the travel related, accommodation/lodging and food and beverage associations featured in the previous weeks. However they are appropriately nestled under GHATOF and need her voice! Who are they?

I see at least three factors common to them; educational tourism, domestic tourism and youth. I also see them as clubs and not trade associations (your opinions may differ).

Travel and see…is an adage we all know; it opens the mind and gets people to develop in human values, personal experiences and emotions. Engaging ‘kids’ in tourism activities is laudable but needs to be done right. I remember the horrors parents faced when school excursions turned sour. Are you eager to find out who makes up this group? Try your hand at these short riddles first!

Riddles:

  1. What word starts with `e` ends with `e` and only has one letter in it?
  • You can see me in water, but I never get wet. What am I?
  • The more of them you take, the more you leave behind. What am I?
  • What letter of the alphabet has the most water?
  • What belongs to you but others use it more than you do?
