Are you a Tourist or a Traveller?
Are you a traveller or a tourist? Yes, there actually is a pretty significant difference when it comes to those two terms. The travel world has their own dictionary just like everything else is this world.
"The traveller sees what he sees, the tourist sees what he has come to see." — G.K Chesterton
A tourist is one who travels mainly for pleasure and to take some time out of work. They would prefer going to the common tourist places where everybody goes. Yes, they are safe players. They want cab services, airport pick up and drop facility, delicious food of their choice. On the other hand, a traveller uses local transport, digs into the history of the place, eats local food, meets people and cherishes memories.
“A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.” — Lao Tzu
“Investment in travel is an investment in yourself.” — Matthew Karsten
“A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions.” – Oliver Wendell Holmes
