Travelers are a unique bunch. It seems that no matter where you go, it’s easy to find someone who is just traveling through. There are many different types of travelers, however, and with a careful eye, you can easily identify the type you’re viewing by how they dress, act, and even where they’re going. Adrenaline junkie travelers are looking for the next thrill and are dressed to play. Retiree travelers might stick to tour groups and proudly show off pictures of their grandkids. Romantic travelers often stick close together, want plenty of private time, or don’t care about who sees their public displays of affection. First-time travelers may look nervous and ask for directions a lot. Partiers go wherever the music and drinks are. Hotels can benefit from being able to identify and cater to a wealth of traveling types.

Travelling is one of the most beautiful experiences a person can have. This world is a vast and marvellous place; filled with brilliant views and fantastic wonders of architecture, art, and culture. The various cultures are one of the richest aspects of these world wonders. There’s so many people on this planet, and they all have a story -they’re all doing something different. However, when you’re in an airport and trying to find the path of least resistance, being able to tell those different cultures and types of individuals apart could be a really handy trick. Generalizations aren’t always correct, but more often than not they’re at least a little bit true, and every extra minute of peace you can find at a bustling airport is worth the risk of being a little bit un-p.c.
They say you should never judge a book by its cover, but sometimes we just can’t help ourselves. Sometimes, it can be really helpful to be a little bit sweeping in your first impressions of people. When in the security line, a quick look at the wardrobe of the people in front of you can help to decipher which line will be the best. You want to veer towards those in business suits. Business travellers are efficient, experienced, and in a hurry -they’re rarely pulled aside for extra screening and they have minimal luggage to scan.
On the matter of travellers to avoid at the airport, keep an eye out for strollers and walkers. We all love babies and our grandparents, but quite frankly the airport is the time we probably love them least. For the family of 5 toting around diaper bags, snack bags, medicine bags, and all of Fisher Price’s fall collection of toys, it’s going to be a long day at the airport. Try to keep clear of these folk if you’re in a hurry.
As previously stated, generalizations aren’t always nice, and sometimes are completely wrong. You just may run into a family of 5 that runs like a well oiled machine when in an airport, and yes, it is possible that you line up behind a first time business traveler who didn’t think to bring slip-on shoes. However, more often than not, these little tips and things to watch for will help expedite your airport experience and make it as stress free as airports can possibly get.
