Anthony Bourdain Cringes When Travelers Make These 3 Mistakes

There are two types of people in this world, according to Anthony Bourdain: travelers and tourists. You don't have to be an avid fan of his food-and-travel series, Parts Unknown, to guess which category the former chef falls into.

"Plans should be ephemeral, so be prepared to move away from them," Bourdain tells Money, explaining that the best adventures and local connections happen when he least expects it. For that reason, you'll never find him lining up for tourist attractions or partaking in an organized tour. "You can't take it in, driving by stuff. That's not satisfying," he says. Instead, he offers travel advice some might gawk at: Get lost, take risks, and talk to strangers. "It's those little human moments that are the ones that stick with you forever."

Follow Bourdain's lead and be mindful of these three common travel mistakes next time you're abroad.
