Top four types of travellers to be avoided
If you are not travelling alone, you end up with people who are either fun to be with or downright annoying -- travellers who will make you plead for the trip to come to an end.
Huffingtonpost.com shares a list of such types of travellers:
- The latecomer: Travelling with people who are always late will screw up your plans. It is always better to tell such people to arrive much earlier than you really need to
- The motormouth: Sure you want to talk to the person you're travelling with, but you also enjoy some quality downtime. People who come go on talking, don't care if you're reading, listening to your iPod, watching a movie, or even trying to sleep. This annoying traveller needs stern and clear boundaries
- The lazy bones: Yes, vacations should be about relaxing, but they should not be about doing absolutely nothing throughout the day. It's okay to sit on the beach for hours on end, but the lazy bones like to sleep in until 11, then have lunch for long hours, then finally make it to the beach, where they'll nap the day away, and you'll be lucky if you even get a night out on the town the entire trip
- The overactive traveller: They will also ruin your travel plans in numerous ways. For example, waking up for a 4 a.m. hike on a 5,000 foot mountain or swimming with the sharks.
