I think I'm ignorant about the difference... guessing... tourist is kind of an open-mouthed gawker while a social traveler has done some reading and has some familiarity with what the area has to offer/cultural awareness? Am I even close? LOL. I think/hope I'm a social traveler... but I'm betting I cross the line into "tourist" on occasion :)
I wander about :)
I travel on a private plane.
Not if you have someone with you.
like a native :D
