20 Characteristics of Every Seasoned Traveler

The more I travel and meet new travelers, the more I realize how much we have in common. If you’re someone who’s constantly on the road, you’ll definitely see yourself in this post! Here are 20 things every world traveler has in common:

1. They’re curious

This is probably the primary reason people travel: to discover the unknown. Magazines, newspapers and TV shows won’t cut it for the world traveler; they need to see it with their own eyes.

2. They have a sense of direction

Travelers are excellent map readers, but that doesn’t mean they necessarily follow the map. So, although their plans may change, they always know where they’re going.

3. They adapt quickly

It’s really uncommon to see a stressed out seasoned traveler. If the conditions change, they change with them. No more buses today? No worries, I’ll enjoy the nightlife!
