 Travel means different things to different people. For some, it can be a journey of self-discovery, for others a broadening of cultural horizons or even a culinary quest. We can all agree that travelling is the best form of rejuvenation and re-invention for the urban-dwelling, perpetually stressed, jaded souls that we’ve morphed into. Here, we’ve identified the 10 kinds of traveler categories that we all fall into –


 Photographers


These are the travelers who can travel through time and space through images. They travel to take panoramic, mind blowing pictures. Their main aim to travel is to take photographs and Instagram them into beautiful stories.


 Foodies


These are people who have set out for gourmet expeditions in search of oh-so-scrumptious food. These travelers indulge in different cuisines and travel across the globe to satiate their soul with food.
