The Traveler

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 "sightseeing."

-- Daniel J. Boorstin (1914-2004), American historian and writer, "The Image: A Guide to Psuedo-Events in America", (1961)
