February 15, 2021

Whether traveling alone or in a group, each person has a distinct personality that comes to life to secure a hassle-free trip to the other parts of the world. Go through the list below to find out which kind of traveler you are in your circle of friends: 1. The Super Organized Planner You’re definitely the designated fixer of the itinerary. All pit stops and tourist spots are run by you for the fastest, most efficient way to get there. Getting everyone from Point A to B isn’t just a skill—it’s a talent, and one you do oh-so very well! You know the best time to visit the places listed in your itinerary, as well as how much time you’ll be spending there. Also, you’re always seen with the next type of traveler in your group, The Expense Tracker. Last Seen: Making an intricate route for your multi-city tour in Europe. 2. The Expense Tracker The one friend everyone is grateful for because he or she specializes in budgeting. From spotting seat sales, booking a cozy but affordable hotel room to finding the cheapest food stalls, you’re certainly the man (or woman) for the job. You believe in making the most with what you have, which means every dollar you spend in your trip was well thought of. With you, traveling can be pocket-friendly! Last Seen: Browsing through the most cost-effective Airbnb listings for your trip to Thailand. 3. The Social Media Updater You can never leave the hotel room without the pocket wi-fi. You’re mostly on your phone, constantly updating your stories, posting photos for the ‘gram, or tweeting out anecdotes. Social media is your travel diary, and you’re happy to share to the world that you’re having a blast during your travel. Last Seen: Taking a selfie with Jeju Island’s picturesque scenery as backdrop. 4. The Ultra Foodie You can never leave the hotel room without the pocket wi-fi. You’re mostly on your phone, constantly updating your stories, posting photos for the ‘gram, or tweeting out anecdotes. Social media is your travel diary, and you’re happy to share to the world that you’re having a blast during your travel. Last Seen: Taking a selfie with Jeju Island’s picturesque scenery as backdrop. 5. The Solo Wanderer Traveling alone doesn’t scare you—in fact, it quiets your mind and relaxes you. #MeTime You don’t mind breaking off from your group or exploring other places, because this piques your curiosity. Talking to strangers doesn’t bother you and you gain new friends. You always come back with a new story or souvenir from where you came from, and you seamlessly join your friends in for the next stop for the trip. Last Seen: MIA in one of the group shots your friends took while you were exploring the streets of Venice. 6. The Thrill- and Adventure-Seeker There’s always one person in the group who wants to try one thing outside of the itinerary. Whether it’s hunting for local bars or joining a festival, you’re definitely the life of the party. You have a thirst for exciting activities and places to see, and your friends never fail to enjoy themselves with your suggestions. Last Seen: Following a hiking trail in South Africa that leads to a stunning view. 7. The Laidback Explorer You’re the chill friend among the group. You go with the flow, and you agree with almost everything your friends suggest that you do. For you, travel should be about the right balance between chilling out and discovering new things. You’re definitely the balance to your buddy, The Thrill- and Adventure-Seeker. Last Seen: Swimming at your Airbnb’s pool area while waiting for your friends to decide where to go next. 8. The Camera Guy or Girl Of course, a barkada won’t be complete without the resident pro photographer. Whether it’s taking a candid photo of your friends walking around the city or the beautiful facade of buildings, your eye for detail is impeccable. You always know where the lighting is on point. Your photos will definitely be borrowed by your friends to post on Instagram—with credit, of course. Last Seen: Taking photos of the architecture in Paris.
