The traveler sees what he sees, the tourist sees what he has come to see.
A "tourist" has a list of famous places they have seen in pictures and movies, or learned of over the years. They make lists of the things they want to see on their journey, and the goal is to see the sights. They visit, take a tour or two, and pose for photographs so that their friends and family back home will see that they were there.
