Everybody has their personal style and it reflects on everything that they do. Of course, the way you plan your holidays is among those things. Check if your travelling style places you into one of these 5 categories.
The Resourceful Budget Keepers
It is amazing on how little money these guys can travel. They use Couch Surfing or some other cheap or free type of accommodation. They always know all about discount cards, free walk tours, happy hours and budget restaurants with amazing food. They sacrifice their comfort, at times, but you definitely want to know all about their travels, because everybody can use some of their tips.
The Classy Consumers of Finer Things
They save money for exotic destinations, but only if there’s a five-star hotel there. Flawless room service, comfy rental car and gourmet restaurants are their idea of a good time. They’re not always crazy rich, but they don’t mind skipping two or three holidays in order to save up for a luxurious one.
The Relentless Planners
It is good to be prepared, but these guys can definitely make an Olympic discipline out of sightseeing. They know their map and their daily plans by heart two days before their journey starts. They have their travel guide in their hands at all times and they dread spontaneous activities that chip into their daily schedule. Perhaps they’re happiest in organized group travels that promise the most sight-seeing for your money.
The Romantic Nomads
These are usually backpackers that grew up, founded a family and bought one of those amazing and affordable used caravans. Now, they enjoy their nomadic style of travelling with their family and it seems that they couldn’t be happier about it. They know all the coolest beaches, places and camping sites. They know a thousand ways to build a safe fire, prepare a meal out of nothing and their phones are filled with contacts of families all over the world that travel the same way. Their kids have seen their entire country and more and they are very resourceful and independent.
The Restless Party Goers
These guys don’t get to see that much daytime. Their destinations are Thailand, Vegas, Greek party islands or places with music festivals. They usually travel in groups and sleep throughout their day, if they sleep at all. Night is their time and bar hopping is their favourite sightseeing activity. They’re the ones with dark sunglasses, sleeping the entire trip home.
The Solo Soul Seekers
When you think about it, there are many subgroups here. Some of the lonely nomads are trying to get over something that happened in their lives by filling it with nice experiences. Other want to get to know more about themselves and take the travels as the opportunity to think their lives through. Usually, they are those minimalistic packers that never check their bags in. Their backpack is filled with books, e-book readers and their camera equipment.
There’s no right or wrong way to travel, as long as you’re enjoying yourself and getting the experience you hoped for. Travel builds your character and enriches your soul, so enjoy it as much as you can, regardless of your personal travelling style. Who knows, perhaps you even change it in time.
