    I think Tourists are people that go places for fun 😁 and the travelers just travel to places 🤔

    I’d say a tourist travels to see the sights, whereas a traveller travels to feel the culture. As a traveller, I go out of my way to befriend the locals, I try local cuisines, I sightsee too of course but I try to find things that aren’t in your standard tourist guidebook.

    Simply put, tourists go on holiday, travellers go travelling!

      You know @monika and @caster , I’ve never thought about it like that before! 🤯 I always thought of myself as a traveller but it sounds like I’m more of a tourist 😬 I’ll definitely be changing the way I travel now!
