When I travel, I feel more like a nomad than a tourist.
The traveler sees what he sees, the tourist sees what he has come to see.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
The camera makes everyone a tourist in other people's reality, and eventually in one's own.
Slow travel now rivals the fly-to-Barcelona-for-lunch culture. Advocates savour the journey, travelling by train or boat or bicycle, or even on foot, rather than crammed into an airplane. They take time to plug into the local culture instead of racing through a list of tourist traps.
The traveler was active; he went strenuously in search of people, of adventure, of experience. The tourist is passive; he expects interesting things to happen to him. He goes 'sight-seeing.'
Daniel J. Boorstin

The tourist may complain of other tourists, but he would be lost without them.
What most people don't understand is that UFOs are on a cosmic tourist route. That's why they're always seen in Arizona, Scotland, and New Mexico.

Henry Louis Gates
