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

written test

Observes or Experiences

Tourist Or Traveler Infographic – Question #1

Observer With Binoculars

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

India Children

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

People Complaining

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?

You are and have chosen to visit a foreign country, and should expect to receive what is normal for their custom and culture.  Enjoy and experience the local culture and customs in the country you have traveled to.

After all, isn’t 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 actually enjoy and really 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 and take in this new memorable experience?

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

See Hear Speak No Evil Clipart

Do you take the time and immerse yourself in the overall experience when traveling, or do you just look but no touch? 

Travel can be so exciting and rewarding! 

Get out there and Look, See and Hear what is around you!

Result Or Goal Oriented

Tourist Or Traveler Infographic – Question #5

Diving Solitary Rock Zihuatanejo

Again, do you vacation with a certain goal in mind, or are you adventurous?

For me, it can work both ways. On certain vacations, I love just vegging on a beautiful 🏖 tropical beach, soaking up the 🌞 sun and melting my troubles of daily life away! 

Other holidays, I want to get out there and explore! 

I want to seek out new and exciting sites and attractions, actually immerse myself in the local culture!

Souvenir Or Treasure

Tourist Or Traveler Infographic – Question #6

unique holiday gift

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 take the time to search for that authentic and unique 🪔 keepsake? Something 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? 

Final Thoughts Banner

To wrap things up here, I have and what I think are two very important travel tips to pass on to you …

Be Respectful Of The People & Culture

Tourist Or Traveler Infographic – Question #7

Varanasi India Local

Always, always, always respect the people and culture of those whose country you are visiting. Remember, are a visitor in their home Country, 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

Tourist Or Traveler Infographic – Question #8

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!
