Traveling solo can be a great way to meet Mr. Right ... but it can also bring you up close and personal with Mr. Wrong.
Metro has a handy list of the "types" you might encounter on the road.
The show-off. He's been there. He's done that. And he'll put a damper on anything you see as new and exciting.
The mama's boy. He's on his own for the first time, and it shows. If he needs you to buckle his backpack, run the other way.
The musician. A good time at first, you'll soon find out that he makes room for that guitar by "forgetting" his clean undies.
The enthusiast. He's constantly breathless, constantly thrilled with everything around him. He'll exhaust you in one day.
The boozer. Pretty self-explanatory. Whatever you might want to do, he'll suggest knocking back a few before ... or after ... or during.
