Dispuesto/listo

I think they are not always interchangeable.

Estoy dispuesto viajar. Besides meaning ready to travel, does it mean I'm open to the prospect of traveling?


I suspect listo and dispuesto don't always have the same meaning. Can someone clarify this?

JPablo is on a distinguished road
"Dispuesto" implies "willing" and "open" to traveling.

"Listo" means ready (even if you are not willing to travel...)

¡Felices fiestas navideñas, Poli!
