19. Don’t be all pretentious about the way you travel. You’re not that special, bro.
This rule came about as I was gchatting with a friend about how great I am at having awesome trips, and he was all, “I’m pretty great at travelling, too.” One of us might have even said “I’m not a tourist. I’m a traveller.” Ugh, I know. So this rule is mostly a reminder to myself to not brag about my own particular way of travelling, because, come on, that’s terrible.
