WHAT TYPE OF TRAVELLER ARE YOU?
Everybody loves to travel the world, let’s be real.
I don’t know anyone who has come back from a holiday and said: “I’m never travelling again“. If you have, you simply haven’t experienced the destination in the way that suits you best!
We are all different; we all have different things that we desire, find relaxing and enjoyable. So to ensure you have the best travel experience, why not try and figure out what type of traveller you might be!
Here are 10 types of travellers with 5 different holiday destinations that would suit your personal travel style.
Before I start… This post is merely a bit of fun! I am a mix of a lot of the travel types on this list; I really do love experiencing anything new regardless of where it might be! But if I really had to choose, I think it would be a combination of Adventurer, Nature Lover and Off the Beaten Track.
There’s really no need for labels these days, so let’s just keep this as a little bit of fun!
But what type of traveller are you?
You love to try new things, to step into the unknown and try daring and out of the ordinary activities. Things like Skydiving, Mountain Hikes, Rock Climbing, Off Roading, Scuba Diving and Bungee jumping are right up your alley. You love to explore new places with amazing views and finding areas that no one else knows about. Stepping out of your comfort zone is nothing but a thrill!
Destinations: India, Costa Rica, Nepal, Madagascar, Chile
Laying on the beach, sun baking with a cocktail in hand is paradise for you. You love warm, tropical weather, sitting on the beach while sipping on a coconut. Your suitcase is full of suntan oil, swimwear, sun hats and flip-flops. A relaxing holiday would win for you any day.
Destinations: Hawaii, Bora Bora, Maldives, Mexico, Thailand
You use travel as a way to ‘find yourself’. Being on your own is refreshing; you can do whatever you want without any questions or hesitations. Taking a walk into nature, exploring a city and laying on a beach is already amazing; but doing it on your own in the peace and quiet is 10 times better.
Destinations: Canada, New Zealand, Ireland, Norway, Finland
Packing light and only carrying the essentials is how you role. You book a one-way ticket and let the travel do the talking. There are no limitations on where you go, where you stay and what you will do… You’re simply up for anything!
Destinations: Indonesia, Central Europe, Vietnam, India, Cambodia
You like to take the same vacation every year. A destination, hotel and itinerary are already planned for your repeat holiday. You’ve made friends with a driver who picks you up at every arrival and takes you around your designated country, simply because you love the idea of having a place you can escape to when your everyday life gets a little too hectic.
Maybe you go down to a local river every year… No matter where it may be, you love going back to a place that almost feels like home.
Destinations: Bali, New Zealand, Fiji, Thailand, Australia
You love to explore the beautiful cities around the world. Architecture, delicious cafes, museums, theatres and bars are the place for you. Screw camping in the wilderness, you want to be in concrete jungles instead.
Destinations: Paris, New York, Amsterdam, Rome, Istanbul, London
Being in the hands of nature is something that makes you the happiest. There is nothing better than seeing the work of our world with no distractions from society. You love incredible views, beautiful scenery and natural phenomenon. Staying away from the cities and people is your kind of luxury.
Destinations: Alaska, Africa, Iceland, Canada, Antarctica
Why stay in backpackers when you can stay in the Fairmont Chateâu? You like to save your money and spend your time to relaxing in a comfortable bed with an indoor pool and free breakfast. You like to travel in luxury. I mean, why not?
Destinations: Austria, The Bahamas, French Polynesia, Las Vegas, The Maldives
Alcohol, full moon parties, clubs and dance. You love to travel to get a partying experience like no other. You like making new friends, having a good time and waking up the next day with a killer hangover.
Destinations: Greece, Ibiza, Croatia, Brazil, Barcelona
Off the Beaten Track
Travelling somewhere unknown and away from tourism, is something you love. You don’t like being around crowds of tourists with flashing cameras and maps in hand. You like to explore countries that no one knows about, that no one recommends and that people will question when you tell them about your visit.
Destinations: Mongolia, Bolivia, Bhutan, Madagascar, Myanmar
As I always say, travel is a gift. No matter who or where you are, you can travel the world in a way that suits you.
These types of travellers are very stereotypical and nothing but a bit of fun. I am a complete mix, and you can be too!
Enjoy your time travelling the globe, and hey, don’t forget to answer…
