What Is a Traveler?
Many people are very misinformed when it comes to what a traveler is. This article hopes to clear this up a bit. First, a traveler is someone who goes from one place to another in a vehicle or by boat. They may be a businessman going into town to negotiate a deal, or a chef going from one restaurant to another for the next meal. A bus passenger is someone who travels on a bus, train, or bus route, whereas a truck driver is someone who transports products and goods from one location to another.
Both travellers and tourists are people who often travel to many different places. However, the difference is they have slightly different connotations. All travellers are travellers, but not all travellers are tourist. The word traveller actually just means someone who travels often. Therefore, someone who commutes on a bus or train everyday is a traveller and so is someone who travels on an RV, caravan, train, or plane on a regular basis.
To become a traveller, you need to understand a little bit about what it means to be a traveller. Traveling means different things to different people, and one definition is “the travel of man.” As noted above, a traveller is someone who travels from one location to another. Some people call these travellers caravansmen, and they also may be referred to as backpackers, explorers, and explorers-among others. So, if you want to get in touch with the heart of the modern traveller, consider reading Chris Stapleton’s new book, A Short Guide to Travelling.
