The Difference Between A Tourist Or Traveler Infographic
I came across this interesting 🎨 Are You A Tourist Or Traveler Infographic comparison chart, that I thought was worth passing on to you. It really made me think about just what kind of traveler am I really?
Have you ever taken a moment to think about what you like about traveling, and just what type of traveler you really are?
I know that as the years go by and I get older, I am certainly not as ⛷ adventurous as I used to be. I think for most of us, this is only normal.
These days, we certainly enjoy the comforts of ✈ travel so much more than the way we used to travel many years ago. When we were younger, we were also traveling on a very tight 💰 budget!
We still like to venture out into the unknown and explore new exciting destinations around the world. 🧭 To experience the local culture and cuisine of the people and countries we visit.
How about you? ❓
Tourist Or Traveler – Take The Test
Observes or Experiences
Tourist Or Traveler Infographic – Question #1
Are you the type of person that prefers a more safe type of travel? Perhaps the safety of group 🚌 bus tours, 🛳 cruise ship vacations, 🏨 all inclusive resort vacations and such.
Or, are you the type that likes to venture off to new places, in search of the unknown? 🏝
Are you an 👀 observer, or do you actually get in there and experience the local culture in the country you are visiting?
We now enjoy doing both types of travel. It all depends on where we’re traveling to, and what type of vacation we’re taking.
I always admired and enjoyed watching world renowned chef and traveler – Anthony Bourdain.
I think that man had the greatest job in the world, traveling to exotic locations around the world, meeting the locals and feasting on their traditional cuisine.
How great is that!
Sticks Out Or Blends In
Tourist Or Traveler Infographic – Question #2
Do you look like a typical tourist on holiday? Or do you like to 🚶 venture out and seek out local establishments, new places and actually talk to and become friends with the locals?
As the phrase went in the hit Star Trek television series Do you;
Boldly Go Where No Man Has Gone Before?
Complains Or Just Curious
Tourist Or Traveler Infographic – Question #3
I think this is the one thing that truly annoys me with people who travel abroad. Why is it that they continue to complain and always compare to what they would expect to receive at home?
People, you are visiting a foreign country and should expect to receive what is normal for their custom. Enjoy and experience the local culture and customs in the country you have traveled to.
After all, isnt that why we travel in the first place?
I love this chart!
It really does show what type of traveler you really are. Do you enjoy and experience the new country you are visiting, or do you find yourself complaining too much and not really taking the time to actually smell the roses?
Grab a piece of 🗒 paper and compare for yourself!
Did you take the test? Did the results surprise you at all?
Oblivious Or Sensitive
Tourist Or Traveler Infographic – Question #4
Do you take the time and immerse yourself in the overall experience when traveling, or do you just look but no touch? Travel is exciting! Get out there and Look, See and Hear what is around you!
Result Or Goal Oriented
Tourist Or Traveler Infographic – Question #5
Again, do you vacation with a certain goal in mind or are you adventurous?
For me, it can work both ways. Certain vacations I do just want to veg on the beach, soak up the sun and melt my troubles of daily life away!
Other holidays, I want to get out and explore! I want to seek out new and exciting sites and attractions and immerse myself in the local culture.
Souvenir Or Treasure
Tourist Or Traveler Infographic – Question #6
Are you the type of person that will visit a country, enter a typical tourist trap gift shop and purchase that souvenir trinket, or do you search for that authentic and unique keepsake that is made in the actual country you are visiting?
How many times for example, have you entered a gift shop in Mexico, looked at the back of the trinket to only find that it was mass produced in China?
To wrap things up with two final and very important travel tips to carry with you
Be Respectful Of The People & Culture
Tourist Or Traveler Infographic – Question #7
Always, always, always respect the people and culture of those whose country you are visiting. You are a visitor and should act accordingly.
Be patient and enjoy the experience!
If you catch yourself getting anxious, upset or losing your patience, take a moment to breath. Relax and just think about why you traveled to this location in the first place!
Be Yourself – Share Your Experiences
At the same time, be proud of who you are and where you come from. Share your home experiences and culture with others. People are interested in your cultural traditions and want to hear all about your native land as well!
