The difference between a tourist and traveler is quite clear. A tourist is a person who goes to a destination in order to say that they went there or to increase their social status. A traveler on the other hand goes to a destination in order to have fun, learn a new thing, or have a new experience. “We travel next to find ourselves.” I really like this sentence because I believe that it really effects the way we view traveling and touristing. Traveling is for yourself and touristing is for others.
