I really like meeting other people when traveling even though I am quite an introvert. Most people are relaxed tourists who are having a good time, and keep up with conversations. They all have interesting stories and some have inspired me. However I have encountered the annoying people, and I try to stay away from them. These are the main types of people I do not like: Disrespectful tourists who want to be treated like gods, while I was in Thailand I met people who were condescending to the locals Anyone from Khaosan road in Thailand who claims to have found their way in life based on a handful of experiences with psychedelics and a buddha tattoo (I am joking in a way, but so many people were cringeworthy there) People who disregard everyone's experiences as "authentic". I have had lectures from people who claim that I have not experienced a country until I have done so and so Who have you met that just irritated you? Or on the positive side, do you have stories about those who inspired you?
