Day after day, different types of travelers hit the ground running to travel the world. Buoyed by the prospect of exploring a new horizon, these are constantly on the lookout for locations and destinations. While all the travelers share the same passion for traveling, what defines or divides them is their style and character. So, whether you are a quintessential backpacker or a thorough explorer, you will most certainly make your way into this list of different traveler types.

1. Solo Traveler (Relaxed and Unconcerned)


The ones who have had enough of the familiar picture. The ones who want to engage completely with their new surroundings, all alone. The ones who bask in the glory of solitude and realize who they truly are. Forces of nature are their only companion, which lets them report more vivid memories from their trips. The ones with enhanced narration skills.

2. Urban Traveler (Smooth and Glossy)


These types know what they are doing. They belong to the no-nonsense category. They set off with a meticulously packed luggage and know their return dates. They look slick and sharp. The ones who have a thing for deep alleyways, bright city lights, museums, cuisines, and bars. These lots are probably holding corporate jobs, have their cabin decked in the corner and brunch is quite possibly their favorite meal.
