I’ve been really trying to branch out lately and learn more about traveling, travel blogging and find my own path in the mass of travel bloggers out there. I belong to a few travel groups on Facebook that I truly love and appreciate for all the help, information, inspiration and support they offer. And I’ve noticed some travelers are judgemental about other travelers – as in this way is “true” travel, or that way in “not real” travel. It got me thinking is there really a “true” way to travel and my conclusion is how can there be when there are so many different travelers out there! What Kind of Traveler Are You?
Some like to get lost and enjoy no fixed plans, just go where their heart desires and stay in one place for how ever long they deem needed.
Some enjoy the planning, choosing of destinations and attractions, planning ahead for ease of stress.
Some have fixed time and try to do as much in the little time they have and try to maximize their experience while traveling.
Some travel for months or even years on end.
Some have only a week or two a year to travel.
Some enjoy basking in the sun on beaches and splashing in the water, while others prefer wandering cities and meeting new people, and some rather explore the natural world.
Some travelers enjoy the luxury of posh hotels and fancy restaurant and flying first class.
Some prefer the simpler things – a bed in a hostel and a snack from a street-food vendor.
Some are somewhere in between.
No matter what kind of traveler you are, do what works for you, enjoy what you enjoy. There is no need to judge one traveler to another, we are all travelers and not one way is better than another’s or the RIGHT way. We all have the choice to choose how, where, when and why we travel – so let’s all accept each other for what we have to offer.
Everyone has a story!
