I am more a Trappist: that is a traveller who likes tourist traps but also likes specific Belgian beers

Okay, I like that classification. I have enough refrigerator magnets and wind chimes to prove I fall into that category.

It sometimes annoys me when traveling when people get all snobby and self-important and call themselves travellers instead of tourists. Who cares? A traveller doesn't know where he is going and a tourist doesn't know where he has been.

Don't you do the same with the last sentence?

Tourist is the person who goes to visit a well known place.

Traveller is the one who goes to live the unknown.

Trappist is the crazy dude who tries all the beers in the world.

Lambic is the sweet female who charms the world.

Haha, good one there. Now, if I could only meet Lambic....it's a name of a beer as well you see;)
