Some would say tourists stay in 5 star hotels and travelers
stay in $1 per night guesthouses or tourists are on an all
inclusive package, travelers go independent, preferably with
a flexible itinerary. I think it is mostly semantics, we are
all visiting places we want to see and experience in our own
way. If I had to make a distinction I would say tourists
travel with a closed mind, travelers with an open one
whatever their destination, budget, mode or style of travel.
