The Traveller is a mini-boss that foolishly stands between Kratos and his objective. The majority of his attacks come in the form of large, broad horizontal swings of his greatsword. You can parry these, but we found it far easier to simply dodge them. The unblockable attacks consist of thunderous ground stomps. Give him room to throw his tantrum and you'll be good.

Make sure to utilize Freya during the fight to keep him peppered with arrows that enhance Kratos' elemental damage and Runic Attacks. Fights in God of War Ragnarök are all about patience and waiting for your opening. So, take your time, learn The Traveller's moves, and punish him when an opening arrives. Then when it comes time to execute that glorious finisher, enjoy it.
