In this interview, Florie Thielin, hotel marketing professional and avid traveler hailing from a small village in the Loire Valley in France, tells us about her “HopTour”, her passion for sustainable tourism and Hopineo.

Sustainability in tourism and travel is a broad and complex topic. Making sense of a myriad of daily announcements, awards, reports and developments requires a lot of experience and special skills. In this short interview, TravelMole sustainable tourism editor Valere Tjolle, as a catalyst and mentor, shares his story and reflects on tourism, sustainability initiatives and why so much still needs to be done, based on his almost 50 years of professional experience.
