The Tourist...!!


This frame from Ubud in Bali brings up the age old debate- Are you a traveller or a tourist? Is there a third breed- a blend of both?

    1. Me too, but more of a traveller and less of a tourist.

  2. Now, that's a 'straight' line. I'm curious. Was that a protest or a very disciplined group tour?

    Tourist or traveller? That's like black and white. I'd like to call myself a 'tripper' as in the primary meaning of that word. ;) To answer your question more precisely, maybe something in between the two.

    1. Absolutely a disciplined tourist group. Tripper sounds interesting. You got to define that.

    1. :), Every traveller has traits of a tourist in him/ her and vice versa. Only the percentage varies from person to person.

  4. There is no distinction, we are one or.the other at every given point

  5. They seem to be very disciplined... Indians would have walked in parallel and block the road...

  7. Nice picture! We are more of travellers - exploring and trying to get more insights of a place than from a place.

    1. Thank you. I don't get safari tv here in Bangalore. Was a huge fan of Sancharam till he moved out.
