Apparently, the only REAL way to travel is to strap a 30 pound hiking pack on your back and hitchhike around while mooching off of complete strangers for accommodation.
If you travel that way, cool. Do you, man.
However, implying that anyone who doesn't want to travel that way is just a "tourist" or doing it wrong is fucking dumb. I don't know where this hipster travel fetish came from, but I'm tired of it.
WE. ARE. ALL. TOURISTS.
