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

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!

When it comes to picking a post-secondary school, there are a lot of factors that should be considered. Schools are generally assessed for the quality of their academics, as well as the various other factors that affect student life, like housing, food, athletics, and extracurriculars.
