Traveler or TouristTraveler or Tourist?

As we get ready to board Viking Sky in the Mediterranean, I started thinking about  why I love to travel.
I knew, as a child, that I was a traveler.  I somehow knew there was a difference between a traveler, who strives to absorb the culture everywhere they go, and a tourist who is content to take a peek but not dive in with both feet.  I’ve no clue how I knew this.  My family is first generation American, which doesn’t usually translate to being very aware of a world beyond our own little corner.  Somehow,  I knew there was a bigger world out there and I knew that no matter how different others sounded or looked there had to be a basic sameness.  I wanted to taste it all, to discover how we can be so alike and yet so different.

How Does Your Garden Grow?

I am not alone in this passion and I am so curious as to how and why some people become travelers and others grow and thrive right where they are planted.  Sooooo…. I am asking you to take the time to send me one sentence as to where your passion for seeing this wonderful world originated.  I was born with mine.  Why do some of us love the adventure and immersion of being a traveler and others prefer the comforts of their own slice of heaven? Are you a traveler or an occasional tourist…and why?
Post a comment on my FaceBook Page. Where or when did your passion for travel begin? I look forward to hearing from you!

What is beauty? The most obvious phrase that comes to mind is “beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” Simple right? But the more I think about this, the more I’ve come to realize that “Beauty is in the mind of the beholder.”
