Everyone would probably like to think of themselves as the carefree traveler. Loving the prospect of hopping on a plane or train and taking off to have a relaxing holiday, whether this be exploring or laying on the beach all day.
Most of you though I’m betting when faced with actually looking at your personality when traveling, may realise that you may not be that carefree traveler that everyone loves to be around all the time.
:: Here’s why I’m not so much fun to travel with ::
I get hangry. You know, the anger that comes with being hungry? It’s a real thing. If I’m with people who can’t decide where to eat when I’m hungry, I turn into a beast. If I have to keep suggesting restaurants and pointing out places only to be shut down numerous times, I will probably walk off and meet you later, after I have gotten food of course.
I have no patience for slow walkers. I walk fast, and if you can’t keep up, I will just keep going. I will probably obnoxiously mention the fact that you are SO slow too. Sorry.
:: Here’s why I’m an excellent travel companion ::
I’m a planner. You don’t know/want to plan out where to stay? I’ll take care of it. You want to know what there is to do where we are visiting? I’ve got a list. Want restaurant reservations made? Done. I’m happy to take the lead when no one else wants to.
I am organised. I’ve got all the tickets printed, hotel confirmations printed, checklist of documents needed, you name it. It’s probably in my bag (except that one time I forgot my residence card, least I had everyone else’s documents).
What are the pros and cons to your travel personality?
