Which Type of Traveler Are You?

If there’s one thing you quickly realize when you start galloping around the world, it’s that not all travelers are created equal. And that’s a good thing, because if they were, traveling would probably be a lot more boring and lacking in variety.

Travelers come in all shapes and colors and they naturally gravitate towards the people they identify with. Sometimes, it might take a few trips for you to really find your tribe, but even when you think you found who you are, you can change in the future!

    There comes a time when a traveler feels like defining themselves. So, which type of traveler are you?

    1. The Adventurer

    Adventurers are always looking for new challenges; they rarely stand still as they’re always part of some exciting mission. They usually avoid the obvious sites and attractions, and tend to be the true off-the-beaten-track travelers.

    Why take the train to Machu Picchu if you can explore the Inca Trail? Why spend time in a museum when you can paraglide over the city? Why eat the same food all the time if you can try so many different flavors? If it’s not new, interesting, and at least a bit challenging, it’s not for them!

    2. The Romantic

    Romantics travel with their hearts. They believe they’ll find the love of their lives on a trip, and if they’re already with someone, they’ll make sure it’s unforgettable.

    If they find a person they click with, everything else becomes secondary, and therefore, romantics are known to change their travel plans completely just to be with that person. It’s no surprise their heart is broken easily, as many times their love is not reciprocated.

    3. The Party Goer

    This unique group only cares about having a great time with a drink in their hand. They might not know the name of the capital of the country they’re visiting, but they sure know the best beer in town!

    They tend to sleep during the morning, sometimes at the beach, curing massive hangovers, only to wake up badly sunburned. Party goers tend to walk around museums like zombies, complaining they can’t buy alcohol inside. Locals love to profit from them, but hate their behavior.

    Mini Guide to Indonesia

    Indonesia is the largest archipelago in the world with just over 17,000 islands. It has a population of roughly 261 million people, though over half lives on the island of Java. The nation has a long trading history with other Asian countries and has also been invaded by the Dutch and English Empires.

It’s also a nature lover’s paradise, with plenty of fauna, volcanoes, beaches, and diving sites.
