Humans are social animals. You gonna meet new people while you're travelling or maybe just commuting to your work, its inevitable. There are plenty of personalities under one roof when you stay at a Hostel when you travel. Let's see how many you have ever spotted:
1) Solo Travellers
They may have come planned and have researched about the whole trip but are always open for suggestions and are open to tag along with. They all usually start with 'Why they started travelling solo' and ends with sharing some coolest experiences.
2) Duo Travellers
These people want nothing more than each other's back. Always fun to chat with as they'll tell embarrassing stories about each other.
They may seem adventurous as they booked a hostel instead of a hotel but it's always the same story, the male partner doesn't want her female partner to talk with any random dudes for long. What if they take her away!
4) Group of Friends Travelling
If you see a group of friends, don't even try. They are not looking for extras and your conversations will be limited to "Hi", "How are you doing" and "Thank You". Instead, they are looking for a vacation to strengthen their bonds and are usually alienated with the idea of solo travelling.
5) Expert Travellers
They are cool and calm no matter what condition they are in. You'll find them mingling with locals to get their work done. If you have any problem, you can always approach them for solutions.
6) Digital Nomads
Geeks and Nerds. They always take a corner table at some cafe juicing the WiFi but don't worry they get pretty wild by night.
When you see a group of people around this one guy, you have spotted him. They love to tell people stories on How they survived the Shimla-Spiti-Manali Circuit and can go on and on.
Minding their own business, reading a nice book with a nice hot cup of coffee in one hand or listening to some music with headphones plugged in while browsing their phone. They want anything but a party.
If you hear someone laughing out loud like a maniac, that's him. He's the guy that keeps on insisting other people for pub crawling, drinking games, and judges other people for relaxing.
Always seen with a camera in one hand, documenting everything. Eventually, people get comfortable with them because everyone wants to be in a video after they are drunk.
11) Flirting Around
They can't keep their hormones to themselves. Always looking for an opening to slide in, no matter what's your status: divorcee, committed, married, engaged, they are there with some trashy pick up lines.
Eventually, we all get homesick but if you spot a person 24×7 on video calls describing how he spent his day, I m not sure they should be travelling in the first place.
Well, these are some common personalities I usually see when I m out but its cool to have different people around. In the end, we all learn something from each other one way or another.
