What’s up everybody? We are Marko and Alex. And you are watching Vagabrothers. And this video is about the types of people you’ll meet while traveling. For us, travel is not just about the places we go, it’s about the people we meet. Your travel buddies will show you new perspectives and change your life for the better. But there’ re certain people you’ll never forget for all the wrong reasons. Let’s meet them. First up: you have “The Partier.” These people travel only to get wasted and do crazy shit they would never do back home. Get down! National varieties include: Aussies, Brits, And of course, good ol’ fashioned Americans. Whoo……God bless the USA!!! Who knows where they are at midnight? But at check out time, there’s only one place to find them. [Vomiting sounds] Another common site is the “Cosmopolitan Casanova” An international ladies’ man, not just trying to get stamps in his passport, but a notches on his belt. So have you checked anything off your bucket list? Bucket list, dude? Forget that noise. We’re talking “fuck-it list” now! Here you go. These are for me. You can take two. Take two more. These will make a healthy guy. Fuck-it list. Engage! Next you have the “Old Jaded Traveler.” No matter where you are, the story is always the same. Should have been here 30 years ago, man. This place was paradise until you kids came and messed it all up! And then of course, there is the “Painfully Stingy Budget Traveler” especially common in India and Southeast Asia. This person is not exactly on a budget. They have money. They are just hellbent on getting the local price, even if it comes at the expense of locals. So I told the guy, “50 rupees ?,… please…” Locals pay half that. I can’t spend money I don’t have. I’m on a budget. Waiter…..another beer. Big one. Then you have “The Lone Wolf” that guy who hangs out in the communal area of the hostel but speaks to no one. His kryptonite – “The Overly Attached Solo Traveler” desperately searching for someone to travel with. Hey. What’s up? Are you traveling alone? Always. Let’s go together! The best travel moments are meaningful in a way that changes your life forever. But not according to this guy. For him the whole world is a giant tourist trap. Ladies and gentlemen, “The Authenticity Seeker.” It was so incredible. I mean, who really gets invited to a traditional Indian wedding? That’s amazing. I’m sorry to burst your bubble, ladies, but Indian weddings??? Soooo touristic. Tonight I’m going to an Indian funeral on the Ganges. We light the pyres at seven. You’re sure to come across the person who loses everything. I’ve lost my “passaporto” OK…..passport. Yes and a small chihuahua white. The person who’s disgusted by everything Have you seen the bathrooms in there? This place is disgusting. There is a drunk man on the floor passed out in his own vomit. Atrocious. The culturally shell-shocked. I know noone speaks English so I told him to drive me down the street. So bad…….I couldn’t even look at him He tried to kill me And it was so scary…. The “Indiana Jones Traveler” who dresses for a trip to Europe like it’s the search for El Dorado. The Planner: any deviation from “the plan” will cause a mental breakdown. Here’s your itinerary. Turn to page one. 6:47 wake up; 7:15 breakfast; and then we head straight to the first museum You know, I don’t really want to go to the museum. [scream] [cry]. Painfully common is “The Know-It-All.” The Know- It- All. This person takes a healthy curiosity with the world and turns it into an intellectual pissing contest. I’ll have the ramen and a century egg. Trust me. It’s all the rage in L.A. right now. [Orders in Japanese] Domo… I……..got this. Domo arigato Mr Robato All right guys.

  1. So ture! love ur vidoes -I know you have come to Cape Town, but have you done South Africa's "Garden Route", the "The Wild Coast" and "West Cost" area's lots more to offer and at the rand's exchange rate right now its pocket change for you guys. Hope to see you here soon. let me know if you need any help.

  2. Haha love this. Literally so true! When we were travelling around Europe we were just like THERE ARE BRITS & OZZIES & AMERICANS EVERYWHERE. Usually us Brits try to avoid other Brits Abroad hahaha

  3. wow things i didn't know ,my question is what kind of traveler are you both ( americans get a bad wrap some times do you guy fall under that same stereo type?)

  4. hey guys I'm a new subscriber & after watching the videos I hv 2 say dt u guys r awsm……..ur videos r too defernt….

  5. Hey guys – I think you've nailed this one. You got all the travelers that you'll never forget – Excellent work!!

  6. How about the "Young Experience-Junkie"? You know, young people who view the wider world
    solely through the lens of what sensual pleasure/fun/thrill they can have?
    Then again, it beats walking around being depressed all the time……

  7. I work in Ecuador and too often run into the worst backpackers who think they are beacons of knowledge and wisdom because they hiked to Machu Picchu last week and then did ayahuasca and saw the meaning of life. Traveling is supposed to humble you, not make you insufferable!

  8. Haha this was funny and true. It's those people who visit but don't travel. They're already too self absorbed to absorb the experience.

  9. This is great. I've met all these types of people on trips and it's hilarious seeing them portrayed in this manner.

  10. I am a lone wolf, i don't want to be, but i am socially awkward so talking to someone can make me anxious. What do i do?? 😣

  11. you seem to enjoy India and Indians. Have you ever vlogged over here. Pls come down to my place while couchsurfing when you are in Mumbai !

  12. LOL. You forgot one more. The Stressed Out Dad (me) who tries to get the family to the airport/train station the day before it takes off. BTW, we hit just about every spot you guys recommend, from Sweden to Berlin, Quebec to Montreal. So far so good. keep up the good work and hopefully see you guys on the road one day.

  13. HAHA I'm the one disgusted by everything not gonna lie 😂😂😂 who wouldn't be disgusted by a drunk dude in his own vomit tho am I right

  14. Bahaha first time I've lolled out loud at a travel vid! 🤣 the fuckit list!! annnd… a chihuahua.. white! Painfully accurate ALL of these characters!

  15. You can add china tour group who travel in very big group and act like no one else is around them other than their group.they can even cross the road without looking left and right and then walking slowly in the middle of the road while crossing.and there is japanese who see their new surroundings through the lense of the camera.they have to photograph everything.

  16. Lol …. You guys are a riot!!! Loved the heads-up on the types of 'travelers-with-a-purpose' we will at sometimes come across. God help us all!

  17. Lol you forgot the travellers that only take a selfie and then leave to post on their social media but dont actually stop to enjoy or get to know a place

  18. People think that brits aren’t that bad. The British government have had to send British police officers to Malaga and Ibiza. Hmmm

  19. We didn't fit into a stereotype or a fusion. But we recognise a number of your characters from our experiences as Travel Thoughts on the road.

  20. No offense but when foreigners think they've got a great bargain in Asia have 99% been ripped off and the price has been tripled lol


  21. 😂😆😂 loved this and have encountered every one! 2 others to add the "loud westerner(typically American)" who you can hear their ENTIRE conversation on the bus or in the restaurant (I'm American, and I've realized just how loud we can be!) AND the "if you don't travel the way I do, then you really didn't go to that place" person … example of this, we were told "you HAVE to do a desert safari in Dubai or else it's like you weren't even there!" Well we had already been in the deserts of Tunisia and had ridden camels and seen falcons, so we wanted to rather spend time with friends in Dubai and try a local restaurant.

    I think those 2 rub me the wrong way, because sometimes I can be like that and it's hard to see your flaws in someone else!

    Definitely learning to mirror and match the culture I'm in out of respect and not be too loud.

    Learning that everyone's travel style is different, so each traveler has to decide for themselves what is important to do/see. Of course giving helpful tips if asked is great, but realizing a person won't travel the exact same way you do.

    Thanks for all your helpful travel videos (& humorous ones too!)

  22. You know who's more annoying ? Twats like you 2 who think they've been there and done it all. Grow up rich uni brats

  23. #1 the partier: Don't forget the Germans, the Irish and then there are the South Africans who will drink them all under the table.
