TOURIST OR TRAVELER? ΤΟΥΡΙΣΤΑΣ Η ΤΑΞΙΔΙΩΤΗΣ;

I dont think of my self as a tourist;Im a traveler. The difference is one of time, I’d explain: Whereas the tourist general hurries back home at the end of few weeks or months, the traveler belonging no more to one place than the next, moves slowly. over periods of years, for one part of the earth to another…. another important difference between tourist and traveler is that the former accept his own civilization without question; not so the traveler who copares it the others and reject those elements he finds not his living….

Σου στέλνω κάρτες

από ένα μέρος

που δεν είμαι.

Δεν είμαστε τουρίστες

είμαστε ταξιδιώτες.

Τουρίστας είναι κάποιος

που σκέπτεται να επιστρέψει

σπίτι του

τη στιγμή που φτάνει

στο προοπισμό του.

Ενω ένας ταξιδιώτης

μπορεί να μην επιστρέψει ποτε!
