After reading A Moveable Feast, I feel that Hemingway tried to set himself apart from others by going to Paris.  Do you think that the book portraryed Hemingway as a traveler rather than a tourist? Just wondering what others thought.

Neither. He was setting himself up as resident - an ex-patriate from his own country and culture, which is what most people from one country living in another country for any period of time are considered.

By the way, note it's ex-patriate, not ex-patriot. People who live overseas don't necessarily give up, nor want to give up, their citizenship or allegiance to the "mother country." Any mother country.

Travelers tend to visit for more than a week, I'd say. Tourists tend to visit for a week or less, or some times maybe two weeks but not much more. Residents, or ex-pats, like to live in another country, and delve into another culture, long enough to "see it in each season, at least once."

Best,
hijo

(p.s., if this is my old pal Steve Higgins, you already know this from your time in London and just wanted to spark a discussion, as you have. Welcome).
