15 Travelers I’ve Met
There are many types of travelers. We take a tongue-in-cheek look at some of the more common types.
1. The Complete Budget Traveler
The budget traveler is a complete budget traveler. He/she travels within a budget and doesn’t change it no matter what exciting opportunity comes along. This traveller will not consume any extra drinks unless someone buys it.
2. The Perennial Party animal
Perpetual party animals have one goal. They want to have fun, usually at a bar. These travelers find the best places to party. They might be better paired with the budget-minded traveler.
3. The flexible, go-anywhere traveler
Flexible, go-anywhere travelers are able to relax and enjoy their surroundings. You don’t need to plan – everything is fine.
4. The Methodical Planner
A methodical planner will not do anything that isn’t pre-planned. They are meticulously planned every second and feel abandoned when things go wrong, as they will. They will always find them wherever the plan directs.
5. The Modern Techie
Modern techies can only travel if they have the most up-to-date travel accessories and gadgets. Keep in touch with the techie to find out which items work and which items are a waste for your next trip.
6. The Avid Souvenir Buyer
An avid souvenir buyer is able to afford to buy anything that will remind them of their holiday. They are more interested in shopping at the shops and markets than spending time with the party animal. This animal is often unable to meet the baggage weight limit on their return journey.
7. The Know it All Traveler
Before traveling, the “know-it-all” traveler reviews everything in guidebooks and on the internet. The “fact-finder” is someone who enjoys asking the most detailed questions to the guides and interrupting them with facts. You don’t know who the “know it all” traveller should be with.
8. The Fancy Photographer
The most expensive and longest-lasting photographs will be taken by the fancy photographer. At any particular sight, other travellers will always be waiting for them. They like to be out early in the morning to catch the light.
9. The Constant Complainer
Constant complainer: The one who finds every aspect of the tour to be not up to their usual standards. They often claim to be frequent travellers, and they want to “talk to a higher authority”. You should probably stay at home and enjoy what is there.
10. The Helpless Traveler
The helpless traveler is a person who finds too much. The helpless traveler will often ask bizarre and sometimes useless questions. Often, someone will accompany the tour to take the helpless traveler under their wing and protect them from all dangers.
