There are all kinds of travellers out there, each one seeking something different in their pursuit of an enjoyable experience overseas. Before you head off on your next adventure, take a moment to consider what category of traveller you would place yourself in today’s travel scene from the options below.
A Squirrel: A Thirst for Collecting
If you are someone that adores building a memorabilia library of your travels at home, you could well be a squirrel traveller. Squirrels look to acquire anything and everything from their holiday destinations to take home as a reminder of their stay, whether it’s ‘I Heart Location X’ T-shirts, beer mats or street art or paintings from local artists.
Simply put, squirrel travellers are those that love to have items to show off to family and friends and display their experiences in a physical manner. Travelling with a squirrel is great, as you can guarantee they will never forget the ins and outs of any visit!
An Eagle: Driven by Escapism
They say that if you are something of a thrill-seeking, adrenaline fanatic on your travels, you are labelled an eagle. That’s because you are more likely to push the heights of your holiday and explore beyond the assumed boundaries of being a tourist, venturing off the beaten track to take risks and discover new, exciting experiences. Nor are they phased by issues on a holiday, such as delayed or cancelled flights or trains.
If you want a holiday where you don’t have to face daunting dilemmas or a guilty conscience by breaking the rules, it’s probably not a good idea to plan a trip with an eagle traveller that wants anything but a basic, laid-back holiday.
A Caterpillar: Keen for Life-Changing Experiences
If you are a traveller that doesn’t consider a holiday to be successful unless you have changed in some way as an individual as a result, then you are probably a caterpillar. Caterpillar travellers strive morning, noon and night to enrich themselves, both socially and culturally, on holiday.
Whether it’s museums and stunning architecture or the local markets and street food stalls, a caterpillar wants to soak up every drop of culture and use it to influence their mindset on life.
A Shark: Organized with a Capital ‘O’
For those who enjoy travelling on the fly, you may struggle to enjoy holidaying with a shark. A shark traveller is someone who feels the need to organize every minute detail of your trip, from airport car parking through to local restaurant reservations.
Although some sharks may come across a little overbearing when it comes to travel arrangements, it can work to your advantage, as their thirst for knowledge may ensure you see every sight to give you the best possible travel experience.
