Distant lands, faraway places, where dreams meet reality with unforgettable experiences. There are many different exciting ways to see the world. So which tourist type are you?
1. The Flip-Floppers
You know this kind: they can’t decide on anything: what to do, where to eat, or where to stay. They’re very relaxed and tend to go with the crowd, or with whatever the crowd says.
2. The Preachers
The preacher knows what’s best for you, even though you don’t! They tell you what to do and when to do it. They probably make great friends for flip-floppers, no?
3. The Bromads
The Bromads are groups of men who travel, forming bonds and discovering the world together. They’re frequently found traveling world tours or extended travel excursions.
4. The Turtles
These are often new backpackers who consider themselves to be travelers and not tourists. They’re often well-educated, young, and don’t have kids. Why are they called turtles? They carry just about all of their belongings in their backpacks.
5. The Flash-Packers
To them, money is no object. They have disposable income to go anywhere, see anything and go whenever they want. Lucky dogs.
6. The Thrift Drifters
Is that another item from the hotel gift shop? Go figure!
The thrift drifters need help in deciding where their money is best spent. In contrast to flash-packers, these tourists are more concerned about costs, but for them, staying in a vacation rental property in lieu of a hotel is a much better option to help save cash. They can enjoy much nicer amenities, and still go home with money in the bank. That is, if they can resist buying another trinket from the gift shop!
7. The Gap-Packers
They are probably classified as travelers who are “between” life’s different stages. Whether it’s between school and their first job or something else, they’re traveling as a way to experience life before it moves to the next phase.
8. The Lone Backpacker
They’re more inclined to prefer solitude, serenity and peace. Alone.
9. The World Weary
They’ve been traveling for quite some time, and they’re pretty tired of the going. They’re not phased anymore by the excitement of it, but they also don’t want to stop. They would rather stay in some lame hotel than rent a vacation home that they can stay and play in.
10. The Meanderthals
Personal hygiene is not so important. Neither is where they’re traveling to next. It’s all a toss-up for the meanderthals, and they like it that way.
11. The Hitchedhikers
That’s the married couple who are barely speaking to each other. Bored, would you say?
12. The Chic Packer
This is the female traveler who never leaves home without her heels, blowdryer, or nail polish: the incessant diva.
Tourists run a wide range of eclectic characteristics, as their choice of travel destinations briefly sets them apart from most of society during their escapades, with different food tastes, entertainment choices, and social skills, but they all share the same commonality: travel. But no matter what kind of traveler you are, staying in a vacation rental is a wise choice.
