There are certain notions associated with travel enthusiasts that are far from reality.It is more of a misconception to stereotype travellers. There is much more to travelling than just exploring places. Travelling brings people closer to the culture and traditions of the visiting land and bridges differences.
Let’s explore some common stereotypes associated with travellers.
Travellers are arrogant people exploring the world
Some believe that travellers are the rudest and the most arrogant people on the Earth. However, that is absolutely untrue! In fact, they are often friendly, sharing their incredible experiences with others. Sometimes, they get too close to share even the minutest details of their travel with you. Again, this should not be mistaken for show off as they merely intend to share their excitement with you.
Travellers have a lot of money
There is a misconception that people who constantly travel have lots of money. However, it is not always the case. There are travellers who have a minimal budget for a trip. How about backpacking and couch surfing? These are for those who love inexpensive and adventurous trips. Travel is the “special something” global nomads save for. People enthusiastic about travelling cut down their expenses to arrange funding for trips.
Not following itinerary can cause confusions
Well, many people believe that if you do not follow an itinerary, you might not be able to explore a destination to its fullest. There is no denial that having a planned list of things to do before you head out helps to save time and make the best of one’s trip.
However, surprise and unexpected explorations can also be fun and thrilling. You don’t need to go always by the book. Who knows you may even land up at something so unusually delightful that was never included in your itinerary!
You Must Buy Souvenirs from Places
Many people often buy small decorative or gift items as souvenirs. However, do you think it is really important or worth your money?
Isn’t it better to avoid these and buy something that you really desire or need? In an age where you can keep photographs as memories, do you really need souvenirs?
These are some of the misconceptions or stereotypes people usually have about travellers. Follow your heart and go out on self-discovery with every trip by just abandoning the stereotypes.
