We've all had that argument with our new friends at the hostel. To drink or not to drink? Is eating McDonald's during your trip really a bad thing? Are tourists and backpackers really all that different?
The truth is, all travellers have different intentions, so we're probably never going to agree. Which type of traveller are you?
