Traveling is an experience, it teaches you about yourself and makes you independent. Some say the best part about travel is the people you meet. But not everyone is lucky every time, isn't it? Whether you travel for work or pleasure, you meet new people from different places and also learn about their culture.
From Paris with Love
Funny, weird, smart, over-smart, rude, annoying, intelligent, nerdy, inspiring, there are all kinds of people in this world. Some are so weird and annoying that you feel someone is playing a prank. But soon you realize that it is the truth of your life, and you are stuck with this person for the rest of your journey.
Suddenly, your journey seems much longer than what it actually is! Of course, there are some amazing people too who may sometimes make your experience even more worthwhile, and you feel blessed to have met them. So join us on the journey while we go 'traveler-watching' and try recognizing which one of them you may run into in your next wanderlust!
Different Travelers You'll Meet While Traveling
The Photography Lover
Photographer
A picture is worth thousand words, and traveling is a time to capture memories. But when you see 'the obsessed photographer', who captures every second of the journey and hurries to upload them on social media, you feel they should just put aside their cameras.

You just want them to enjoy the moment. It may also happen that your 'photographer friend' may accompany you on your trips. While you might frown at them for making you pose, you'll be glad that those pictures exist!
The Poser
Best Friends Taking Selfie
You come across many people who like to do some strange things, especially when it comes to posing for pictures, with selfies being popular off late.
This person simply loves to pose for pictures, be it saving the Leaning Tower of Pisa from falling or falling from a cliff! Then you have some reluctant and serious posers, who are always embarrassed to pose for a photo.
The Foodie

If you've traveled with a person who doesn't care about what he/she eats, you know how good it is to have 'the foodie' around. This person will leave no chance of tasting every authentic, weird dish of the place.
Family Enjoying Meal In Restaurant Together
Let us warn you; this food enthusiasm can be really infectious, and you may soon find yourself trying new and delicious food everyday.
The Romantic Honeymoon Couple
Playful Couple Making Selfie
This couple gets swept away in the sea of romance, while they can't get enough of each other. If the placeĀ is popular for 'honeymooners', be ready for PDA and couples giving poses in front of monuments, or like in 'Titanic'!
Tropical Honeymoon
And others like to go by the saying, "The couple that travels together stays together."
The Family Guy
The Family Guy
The guy who just can't travel without his family, and sometimes even dog! This family travels with twice as many bags as people in the family that often takes up other people's space.
Family Horseback Riding
Their conversations are always about their family or some other family and their personal matters. And with small kids around, there's no end to commotion and disturbance. However, if you are lucky enough, you may come across a good family as well!
The Adventurer
Adventurer
Adventurers are some of the best company to go exploring with and can be contagious! For some, travel means adventure and thrill that gives them adrenaline rush at every step. You'll always see them up to something when they are not pulling off any stunts.
Divers Entering Water
Even between big adventures, they have their own mini-adventures. And when they are not having any adventures, they are either sleeping or eating.
Mr. Bucket List

These adventure lovers are one of the most humble travelers you'll run into in your life; that is, if you are lucky enough to catch hold of them before they are off to tick the next thing on their bucket list.
Scuba Diving
They are always ready to have some company and would love it if you join them for the next day's skydiving, bungee jumping, or scuba diving, which you will definitely agree to (thanks to the beer that you had last night!).
The Obvious Tourists
Tourists Walking On Goa Beach
These travelers stand out in the crowd easily. You'll often spot them with a map in hand, trying to figure out directions or the ones trying to blend in with the locals. You'll often see them being dressed like locals, trying to adopt the ways of a certain place and culture.
The Nerdy Couple

Nerdy couples too can be seen leaving their comfort zones and injecting nerdiness in their trips as well. Of course, they like to do it in their own way and like to do prior research in detail before they decide upon a place.
Young Couple With Surfboard On Beach
They can be seen at the beaches surfing (pun intended!) and soaking themselves in every ounce of information before and after visiting the place as well.
The Wise Old Couple

You think you can beat them with your youthful energy? You need to think twice about it dude. They've been there done that, may be once at least, which is why they are the best and the cutest couple who can advise you on anything that you may need.

Believe us, it will be the best advise you'll ever get from anyone. If you get a chance, go exploring with them; chances are that you may come across a great place that may not even be on your list!
The Partier

For this traveler, everyday is a holiday and every night is a party! Whether it's by the seashore or in the middle of a dense forest, this person will always be the one to grab a beer and set the party mood.
Cocktails On The Table
Moreover, he/she will have plenty of personal experiences and stories to share, which would mostly involve partying and getting drunk! Of course, these guys are great and fun to hang out with.
Mr./Miss Wanderlusting
They are always ready for some or the other outing, be it a place nearby or far away. They have a passion for travel and won't miss out any place. They simply love to explore new places and always have a destination in mind. All their stories are about different places and not things or people.
Mr./Miss Know-It-All

Mr./Miss Know-It-All, aka the self-proclaimed guide. They'll tell you A - Z of every place that you mention. Even if you want to know a good place to eat, they'll tell you where, when, how, what time, and what exactly you should be eating at what place.
They'll also give you 10 reasons why you should have or shouldn't have gone to a particular place, and also warn you of some things and places if you want to have a great time.
The Eager Traveler
The person who is always up very early and ready to explore the place. They are always excited to see and explore new places and do new things, and are always ready for some more. They are a great company to travel with, and you will gain maximum in the company of this person.
The Good Guy/Girl
Smiling Guy
We often come across some simply good and sweet people, who will offer help without expecting anything in return. You will often get along with them very easily and make your tour worth remembering. At the end of it all, you'll feel glad that you met them.
Of course, there are other travelers like

1.The Noisy Traveler
2.The Heart-broken One
3.The Lazy Traveler
4.The Light Traveler
5.The Gadget-Savvy
So, go ahead and explore the world! No matter where you end up, you're sure to meet many, many new and interesting people, and probably end up adding some more weird characters to this list. After all, that's the surprise in life. You never know what or who you'll come across on the way.
