Travellers who need to go home immediately

Backpacker Twats

  1. The party ‘bro.’

I thought I’d left these blokes behind at university. Apparently not. I’m sure this applies to some female travellers as well, but these have been almost exclusively male in my experience. On the rare occasion that they’re found outside their natural habitat of the party hostel (which I avoid like the plague), these guys are unbearable.

Their interactions consist of suggesting we play a drinking game, because they’re incapable of having an actual conversation, shouting “DRINK”, or shouting “weeeeyyyyyyyyy,” when someone gives in and succumbs to their idea of “fun.”

They’re also incapable of a bus journey or a day out without having several beers on them, and only interact with locals who are pulling their pint or plying them with free shots.

They often round their night off by vomiting or pissing in the street, which they probably wouldn’t do in their own country but who cares about that, eh?! They’re on holiday. WEEEEEEEYYYYYYY!

  1. The stop at nothing selfie shotter

I’m pretty sure that this doesn’t apply just to people travelling, but this is definitely exacerbated because of some of the locations you’re in. This person wants to get the perfect picture. What’s wrong with that? Nothing, normally.

However, if you’re on the side of a mountain or the edge of a narrow trekking path and think it’s acceptable to push people out of the way, think again, my friend. Your idiocy is putting your own, and other people’s lives at risk.

It costs nothing to be patient and wait, or politely to ask someone to move out of the way. But don’t bulldoze your way through, no matter where you are.
