Tripoto

If you're not the solo type but have still decided to explore the world, you'll have to search for the perfect travel companion who will make all the difference. And trust me, not all friends are best to go on adventures with.

Engineers are practical, serious and patient, and these personality traits translate well when traveling. Don’t assume Engineers are serious all the time; they definitely know how to have a good time.   

Check out the reasons why if you know one, you need to travel with him. 

1. An engineer isn't afraid to do research before making any major travel plan. When you're about to book those tickets, he will remind you that some site will probably have a 25% discount coupon coming up soon and you should wait to save your money.

2. Engineers appreciate tradition, so if you're looking to connect with locals, the engineer traveler is all about that. For them, nothing is more enjoyable than getting to know a cool tradition.

3. Engineers know how to fix things. You're on a vacation and suddenly your GoPro is not working? An engineer is like your own personal handyman. He will not only fix it but also explain it to you (in layman's terms) what went wrong.

4. Engineers are perceived to be very serious, but they have a secret super talent: they are hilarious. They are super social and are able to adapt to any situation.

8. They are well versed in statistics and probability. When planning a getaway, he will know the best time to buy tickets. 

9. Engineers know how to “use the space allotted in the most efficient way.” That means if you have five people all trying to go on a roadtrip, they will make everyone's luggage, alcohol, and food fit into the trunk of the car.

Hey! I usually really enjoy the articles written by you but I'm sorry to say this was supremely disappointing. Very stereotypical view of all engineers.

Don't get me wrong, I am not saying the article is bad. I am a marketeer myself and have always appreciated quality content. This seems just like one of those fad articles.Better luck next time.
