What Kind of Traveller Are You?

According to Laurence Sterne:

“Thus the whole circle of travellers may be reduced to the following heads:

Idle Travellers,

Inquisitive Travellers,

Lying Travellers,

Proud Travellers,

Vain Travellers,

Splenetic Travellers,

Then follow

The Travellers of Necessity,

The delinquent and felonious Traveller,

The unfortunate and innocent Traveller,

The simple Traveller,

And last of all (if you please) The Sentimental Traveller (meaning thereby myself)….”

[Laurence Sterne, A Sentimental Journey Through France and Italy, 1768].
