An everyday tourist is a flaneur, someone with curiosity, who seeks new experiences and has an eye for the road less travelled. He/she takes the time to look, listen and reflect on everyday experiences.

What is an everyday tourist? 

I try to live my life with the curiosity of a tourist everyday.  I love to flaneur everyday wherever I am. I love to Tweet and write about my adventures.
