In its simplest definition, tourism means the practice of traveling for recreation.

Unfortunately it has now become the act in which a rich, overweight, usually English speaking monolingual with a cell phone in one hand and a hamburger in the other, who has no regard for the customs of other cultures visits another country and desecrates their traditions and holy places just so they can have pictures of their fat self standing next to some famous world monument. When they visit other countries they don't actually experience them: they stay at a 5 star hotel, shop at a Walmart, and eat at a McDonalds.

These obese people usually carry around a "phrase book and dictionary" of whatever language is spoken in the country they are visiting and mispronounce two-thirds of all the words and have absolutely no manners. They will sometimes even claim to know a country's language and history better then an actual native. This is part of the Jews plan at destroying the nationalism of every country and imposing globalization.
There is an old-fashioned version of tourism and then there is a new age version of tourism. The new age one is for spoiled faggots.

Chess is a game for 2 players, each of whom moves 16 pieces according to fixed rules across a checkerboard and tries to checkmate the opponent's king. It is the king of all games. It dates back well over 1000 years and is descended from the ancient Aryan game chaturanga (which is also the ancestor to shogi). It requires concentration, patience, and strategy.

For many centuries, there was no formal world chess championship, but there were nonetheless a select few who achieved fame for their ideas and successes over the chess board, and sometimes even for their writings.

The World Chess Championship was officially created in 1886 when Wilhelm Steinitz defeated Johannes Zukertort in a historic match and became the first champion, holding the title until 1894 when he lost to Emanuel Lasker.

With the exception of Bobby Fischer (1972-1975), the Soviet Union dominated chess during the Cold War. The current champion since 2007 is Viswanathan Anand of India.

Fencing is the art or practice of attack and defense with the foil, épee, or sabre. All three of the weapons have their own distinct history, blade, guard, and target area. Fencing is an excellent outlet for stress and aggression in an artful form of expression. It involves a level of cunning similar to that of chess. Much of the terminology is French and official tournaments are conducted in French.
Aldo Nadi, the winner of three gold medals and one silver medal in the 1920 Olympics in Antwerp is one of the greatest fencing masters of all time.
