Traveling has the benefit of getting to know a lot of people. People with different backgrounds, people from different countries, people with different ideas. If you travel frequently you might have come across some of the following types of traveler:
- The budget traveler
Living on a strict..often on a daily budget. No extra expenses are allowed. Usually, they have a very clear idea on where and when they wanna go and what they wanna see. Good budget planning skills but might miss out on different things due to less flexibility.
- The solo traveler
Exploring alone.. He shows up out of the blue and disappears as if Harry Potter puts on his invisibility cloak. He is usually very spontaneous and has no fear of spending time alone.
- The traveling couple
Those guys putting their relationship to the ultimate test. Eat, sleep, hike, spend every second together.
- The „need a buddy“ traveler
He needs a travel buddy. Never could he imagine traveling by himself. He needs someone to share the taxi, to share the room, to share stories with.
- The luxury traveler
„Where do you usually spend your nights? In hostels?“ – „What the heck is a hostel? I think you’ve just mispronounced ‘hotel’!“ Only staying at hotels. Doesn’t want to mingle with the mob in hostels. Has (or pretends to have) a good income.
- The escape traveler
Short-term or long-term traveling – this guy just needed to get away from home for some time.
- The chaotic traveler
He basically has no idea where he is going. Maybe he has a few fixed points in his agenda.. a few things he actually wants to see. However, he just goes back and forth as he pleases until he eventually passes one of the fixed points.
- The blogging traveler
„Are you coming for a beer tonight?“ – „Sorry, I can’t. Need to finish this post..“ Always on the lookout for a catchy post, an exciting story.
I might have forgotten one or another. Feel free to add missing types of traveler 🙂
