Why I Don’t Consider Myself A World Traveler

By  | 

An ongoing debate I’ve had with my family and a few close friends has been whether or not I’m a “World Traveler.”

Yes, I have been to locations all over the world. Yes, I’m not only willing, but have flown 20+ hours for a weekend in Asia at a moment’s notice.  I’m at some of my happiest seeing different topography, sights, and sounds.


There are many places I have no desire to go, either because I’m scared or uninterested. And that lack of curiosity and self-imposed limitations is why I don’t think I deserve the title of World Traveler.

To me that term has always meant someone with an insatiable curiosity to see all the sites and visit all regions on earth. And I don’t think I deserve to be classified with true adventurers like that. I will begrudgingly label myself jetsetter, but not world traveler.

What do you think qualifies as a World Traveler?
