One thing that I have found is that when traveling, there will be people from all walks of life. Rich people, poor people, smart people, stupid people, funny people, sad people, inspiring people, ridiculous people, helpless people and the list goes on.
1. The First Time Traveler
The first time traveler is usually excited and sometimes a little apprehensive. Yet they have enthusiasm for discovery and look for opportunities to learn. Everything is exciting and new. However there could be the first time traveler who is expecting everything to be like it is at home and leave the tour disappointed. Let all the new people discover that the world is different and they can be enjoyed.
2. The Travel Guru
The travel guru knows it all. They read everything that they can prior to the tour and then they like to impress you with their knowledge and sometimes they speak the native language. They will provide advice on all things and there will be times that you wished you had someone else to talk to. However, you can still learn something from him / her.
3. The Adventure Man / Woman
The adventure man / woman personifies adventure. They dress for the adventure occasion and even act the part. Not like other travelers who simply enjoy adventure. Great people to be with during adventures but not necessarily the best dinner companion.
4. The Party Animal
The party animal prefers to start the day with brunch. He / she finds it difficult to get up early in the morning due to the party during the previous evening. Great people but will slow down serious travelers.
5. The Warring Couple
The warring couple are on the tour because one of them wanted to go. During the tour this fact will come out and there will be unsavoury scenes. Find a place some distance away and continue to enjoy your holiday.
6. The High Spending Traveler
The high spending traveler expects to get whatever he / she wants in any place. Can be much fun if they are generous but sometimes difficult to be with.
7. The Normal Traveler
Yes there are many normal travelers out there. They are like you and me enjoying the company of others and being a friend when it is needed. Easy to get along with and has a great sense of humor.
In summary, whatever the kind of traveler you meet, do not judge too harshly. Everyone must have their day but some want it more often. Have fun and try to find the normal traveler and all will be well.
