Tourists are nosy. Travelers help.

Lazy vacations are nice. Vacations that let you travel somewhere exotic and have your favorite drink under the warm sun by the beach.

Is that all that hits you when we speak of travel? I’m here to tell you otherwise.

Sure, it’s about getting away from your daily routine, but it isn’t all about relaxing. A vacation is synonymous with tourists — Tourism.

Travelers don’t seek places to relax or a ‘beautiful’ place to visit. They tend to wander where most don’t.

Tourists look for itineraries — well-planned ones that have zero chances for change.

Travelers explore, immerse into understanding a culture.

Want to be more of a traveler? Just keep your eyes open.

Talk to the locals. Listen to their stories. Listen more, talk less.

There’s much to see in the world out there :)



Hello Tim,

The article's just great! But I think everything take time. People take time to trust. Google and SEO take time.

Sure, people make millions off these income streams, but after they make it to a benchmark. People would think twice before buying an inspirational book from me while they'd buy blindly from someone like Jay Shetty.

Maybe it won't take more than a couple of months to actually get some trust. But 'a few months' is a lot of time.
