While on a trip, you can come across numerous kinds of travelers. Travel is an entertaining exercise and can give you a lot of pleasure. Other than being able to see new things, you can come across many people traveling along with you who can make the trip more interesting for you. Usually, you can find these 7 types of fellow travelers on your trip.

These people inspire you with their zest for life, and determination to enjoy life despite limitations and restrictions.
