Are you an eco-focused tourist, a digital nomad, a cruise fanatic or a fan of all inclusive vacations? To find out which travel style best suits your individual personality, simply continue reading to discover a list of some of the most common lifestyle types for travellers.
If you would love to quit your 9 to 5 desk job in order to travel the world on your own terms, you may want to become a digital nomad. A digital nomad is an individual who works online from a laptop or smart phone and can therefore work from any location that has a decent WIFI location. Many digital nomads spend prolonged periods of time in regions where the cost of living is low such as locations in South East Asia such as Thailand and the Philippines and locations in Central America such as Costa Rica and Mexico.
Some digital nomads work as freelance graphic designers or web designers while others run lucrative travel blogs or ship products that they source on their adventures such as handicrafts around the world. For example, you may want to run an online jewelry store where you can sell hand made pieces of jewelry which you have picked up from different regions of the world as a digital nomad.
If you are the type of individual who would gladly offset their carbon emissions, in order to safeguard the environment and to travel with a clean conscience, you may be interested in green tourism. For example, you may choose to book your accommodation at eco friendly resorts. Some of which are in awe inspiring locations such as in lush jungles and on pristine beaches.
All inclusive tourists:
Other tourists prefer not having to worry about incurring incidental costs on their trips and love the fuss free nature of booking accommodation at luxurious all inclusive resorts. Where you don’t have to worry about paying for drinks, meals, activities or entertainment. If you want to book a romantic vacation for two, you also have the choice of booking accommodation at an all inclusive resort that caters exclusively to adult clientele.
If you like the idea of going to sleep at night and being able to wake up in a brand new country, it’s well worth taking your first cruise. As while you may only spend a limited amount of time in each location, you may come across destinations that you instantly fall in love with and will plan to visit for an in depth trip in the future. Another benefit of becoming a cruiser is that most cruise ships are also all inclusive so you won’t have to budget for food, drinks or entertainment while you’re on a cruise.
So after reading about the different types of lifestyles that suit different tourists, hopefully you’ve found a group that best suits your personality. For example, you may relate to being a green tourist or may be interested in the opportunity of becoming a digital nomad!
