“Humans see what they want to see!” Every individual is different. We all look at the world from various perspectives. Every perspective is different from the other. Traveling is one such experience that is understood vividly.
For some, traveling is a journey to self-discovery, while for others, traveling is to explore newness – cultures, environments, culinary, people, cities, etc. There are also some, who just travel to complete their bucket list or their social media feeds.
Somehow, it doesn’t matter what kind of a traveler are you as long as you are enjoying your own journey and the destination. Basically, traveling is to rejuvenate, destress, have fun, and reinvent yourself. Every time you travel you must feel a little better on your return to your everyday life.
There are various types of travelers in the world, some are a mix of everything, and some fall into a specific category. Let’s find out what travel category you fall into.

Sometimes it looks like, whatever they do, they do it for social media. These enthusiasts travel for social acceptance and attention. Maybe they find personal satisfaction in social acceptance. Wonder if they enjoy traveling or not!

The travel-dreamers: People who never travel in real but in their minds. Surely, they make real plans, but their plans often fail. Or postpone them only to postpone them further again.
