    1. Non sequitur. The person who travels may be a messenger. Just because they're always traveling.

    Is it an analogy at all?  No.

    Is it an attack on the person?  No.

    What question?  Well maybe, WHY you are always traveling, or HOW, might indicate whether you would need to be rich to do it.

    But most likely, non sequitur - it does not follow that a person who travels a lot is rich.
