Tourist or Traveler? Is There a Difference?

The Difference Between Tourists and Travellers | TravelBlogs.

I have always thought that there was a distinct difference between a tourist and a traveler. I thought the distinction had to do with attititude and how one approached a new place, culture, or experience… that is… until I read the comments in a travel blog that asked about the difference. Now I see there is more to consider.

Check out the comments at The Difference Between Tourists and Travellers | TravelBlogs and comment back on my blog to let me know what you think.

  1. I think it is a TomAYto / TomATto issue.
    I think both want to see, taste, and experience what life has to offer in a different cultural setting, but I think a tourist is more apt to follow the set path and a traveler might step off said beaten path.
