That’s the question that DP and I have been discussing, and coming back to, for the last 24 hours.
DP captured it best when he said, “A tourist is a person who is entertained but not changed by travel.”
This debate is not about the clothes we wear, the gear we carry, or the price of the hotel room where we lay our heads at night. The relevant question is, has travel transformed you? Has experiencing the world forced you to question some of your assumptions and deeply held beliefs? Have you amended your world view, re-drafted your own personal Constitution about the way things should be?
Tell us your thoughts about the difference between tourists and travelers.
