Pain is temporary. Quitting lasts forever Lance Armstrong It’s always too early to quit. Norman Vincent Peale If you quit once, it becomes a habit.
You are the armchair photographer who scours the globe searching for that iconic image. You have a “Been there, done that” approach to life. You are the master multi-tasker, have all of the techy gear, including the latest iphone and every travel app to go with it. By day, you can be found hanging on the edge of a cliff attempting to capture your best angle but at night, you’ll most likely be found sitting in a group of all-night revellers singing rounds of Bye, Bye, Bye by NSync at closing time.
You live a life similar to that of the Thrill Seeker, #noregrets but you have your limits, just not so much when it comes to your spending. Pppffffttt…after all, you have a lifetime to worry about debt. Now is not the time. Your trips abroad tend to be at least two weeks in length because you want to squeeze as much out of an experience as possible. And because you don’t want to waste a minute, you choose your travel destinations by doing a ton of online research first. And to pay it forward, similarly, you are most likely to leave an online review to help guide your fellow traveller. And while you always have a loose itinerary floating around in your head as to what you want to see and do, you are also open to new experiences should they call.
Like a yogi at an Indian ashram…you are flexible. A great book to take along on your travels would be “The Lost Girls: Three Friends, Four Continents. One Unconventional Detour Around the World” by Jennifer Baggett, Holly C Corbett and Amanda Pressner. The Grammer is a social free spirit that is often considered the most fun to travel with.
The Grammer travels best with the Thrill Seeker and the Stamp Collector.

I’m Diane Molzan, founder of the Digital Travel Academy
I’m a traveller just like you. My travel style is Allocentric but truthfully, I’m probably a mix of all of the travel styles – depending on the moon, the tides and whatever hormonal shifts are going on with me at the moment.
I started the Digital Travel Academy to show other travellers how they can build a career out of doing what they love most – travelling. I’ll be sharing all my insider tricks and tips. And if I come across a great industry deal, I’ll give you the scoop on that too.
So be sure to stay subscribed.
In the meantime, I am building a course that offers a step-by-step guide that will show you how to start your own travel business and make good money at it. More details on that to follow but for now, let’s keep in touch.
You can drop me a line any time at firstname.lastname@example.org. I love connecting with fellow travellers.
Until next time, safe travels!
