8 Types of Unique and Rare Travelers

Home » 8 Types of Unique and Rare Travelers

Besides meeting the fun crazy bunch, or the inspiration gurus, sometimes you may cross your path with this group of slightly more unique or rare types of travelers. They usually “operate” in a sub-culture group and definitely have a value they believe in, which makes them a little different from the rest of the travelers.

8 Types of Unique and Rare Travelers You May Meet When You Travel:

Number 1 – The Adrenaline Rush Travelers

Adrenaline junkies are more likely to book an adventure holiday, following adrenaline-fuelled pursuits such as skydiving, paragliding or ice climbing. They cannot sit still and have a day wasted by doing nothing. Somethings need to keep them going everyday even when they are on vacation! 🙂
