旅游还是旅行? Tour or Travel ?

     

      在我们的潜意识里总会觉得,旅游跟旅行到底有什么区别,不都是在出发前挑个心中想念多时的地方,待到定好出发的时间,背上行囊,放下学业、工作,搭上驶往目的地的火车,在内心无数次期待着未来几天在异地他乡美好的旅途。如果我们都是这样想的,那我们都错了。在这不妨为大家谈谈旅游与旅行的区别。
So what is the difference between touring and traveling? In both situations, you pick a destination before hitting the road, you start out at a certain time, you get your suitcase or backpacks and get on a train that goes to your dreaming place with all the expectations you have in your mind. If so, you are making a mistake.

      旅游是一种消遣和消费的过程,花钱享受异地的风光、风情、美食和服务。有人说旅游就是从你活腻味的地方到别人活腻味的地方去。讲究走得顺利,住得舒适,玩得开心,食得美味,购得称心如意。讲究这些时,一遇到飞机误点,旅馆脏乱,景区拥挤或者是刮风下雨,购物挨宰等等,便会怒气冲冲,怨天尤人,觉得十分扫兴倒霉。
Touring is leisure and spending money to enjoy different sceneries, cultures, gourmet foods and excellent services. One wants to travel smooth, live comfortable, have fun, eat well when taking a tour. Because of the high expectation, one often complains when there is a flight delay, when the hotel is dirty, the tourism spot is crowded, the weather is not nice or getting ripped off when buying souvenirs. They get angry; they regard their whole trip ruined.

      旅行则是一种体验和感悟的过程。体验自然,感悟人生,不惧怕遭遇雨雪风霜和艰难险阻,把一切都视为人生的一种经历,一种体验,随遇而安,始终保持着平和的心态,沉着应对,这就是旅行。
Traveling, on the other hand, is an experience of embracing nature, pandering on life, not afraid of getting caught in extreme weather and difficult situations. Everything is an experience, everything is worth the trip. Go with the flow,deal with any and keep calm in the mind. This is traveling.
