I suspect that many of you reading travel from time to time but I’m curious as to what “type” of traveler you’d categorize yourself as?
Of course these labels can change so it might be fun to revisit this poll in a year from now. I’ll be posting the results next week and if you think I’ve missed a major category of traveler, let me know and I’ll be sure to add it to the list.
I see some discrepancy here.
Except backpacker, all other categories are with respect to time. i.e. ‘how long we travel’ whereas the last category is for ‘we travel as what’.
I mean backpacker can fit in anywhere with the above.
Anil, correct me if I am wrong, I haven’t voted yet.
You’re right, I didn’t notice that when I was setting up the poll. I suppose one could be a long term/vacationing/etc. backpacker. Perhaps that would be better suited to ‘student’ traveler? I’m open to any suggestions you may have.
Well, as per this list, I am a vacationer but generally travel as a flashpacker or a backpacker. Which one I should vote for then ?
Hmm…I should add an alternative option somehow. I’ll leave the final decision up to you. I suppose for backpacker I was thinking more the student type but these comments have me thinking. I could have done a much better job of defining!
I’m currently on a rtw backpacking trip and I love doing adventure/outdoorsy stuff. Which box do I tick? 😉
haha, I could have added an ‘all of the above’ or ‘a combination’ but I suppose I’ll make it difficult 😛
Well, I’m retired, so I’m certainly not a vacationer. I’m about to set off on my third RTW, but I won’t be gone as long as a year, and I have every intention of being home in around seven months. And although I travel with a convertible backpack, I usually stay in guesthouses rather than hostels. I guess I’d have to vote “none of the above”….
Works for me – these categories are hardly rigid, quite the opposite in fact 🙂
