What about for taking part in this thread - or even Travelers Point? I need to know as I've got a flight to catch and I'm concerned what everyone else at the airport is thinking of me. ;)

World Traveller is a class of service on British Airways. I guess anyone who has flown coach on BA outside of Europe could call themselves a World Traveller. Therefore, I qualify. ;)

As others have also pointed out, the more I have travelled, the less I know. Therefore, I would less consider myself a world traveller now than I would have 5 years ago. In fact, I don't really think I know enough about any place now to even consider myself knowledgeable. I'm not sure I really understand the geography and culture of my own bedroom, let alone a country.

Hi. Ive been to 5 continents (Europe Asia America (N&S) Africa and Australasia). Ive also been inside the Arctic Circle but havent done Antarctica. So I guess Im not a world traveller yet. I have flown Concorde too so Ive been higher up in the world travelling than any other airliner, unless the TU-144 went higher. Not sure.

If they were, then I'm just rushing out of kindergarten with a crayon drawing.
