Am I a Traveller or a Tourist?
on some of the best, must-see areas that might not be mentioned in other guides. The expanse of knowledge out there is truly endless. Your whole world changes. The Difference, usually, a tourist will be someone who wants to visit a country to experience all the popular sights and attractions that a destination will offer. Do you agree with us?

Maybe you decide you want to start a non-profit organization or maybe you decide many dont accomplish anything because of too many middlemen and regulations. Tourists are more concerned about following the crowds but if they do get lost, they consult the guide book )which tells them to ask for directions to the nearest hotel or main street where somebody will speak their language).

Although there is nothing wrong with this, we wondered if there was in fact any difference between the two terms. Am I a tourist, or a traveler? Go, ask questions, and seek to understand.

There are so many questions to ask about a new place, and while they may seem menial or uninteresting, they can be important.
