Ten Annoying Things Every Travelling Hipster Says and Does

Travelling has become a popular pastime among young people over the last decade. While traveling and visiting the world is a wonderful activity to undergo, there are some super annoying and cliche things that young hipsters say and do while travelling the world. Ugh. Take a look at a few of them here!

1

“I’m going to find myself”

“I’m going to find myself”

Umm, no. You are not going to go travelling and find yourself. You are going to go travelling, get drunk at the full moon party, experiment with drugs preach about the spiritual effects of travel. Just be honest about it!

They’ll get a tattoo of a compass

They’ll get a tattoo of a compass

“Yeah dude, this compass represents my life as not being constrained by the effects of location. Home is wherever I am, you know?” Please stop. It’s too much.

Elephant pants are so cliche

Elephant pants are so cliche

If there is one thing that the travelling hipster loves then it is elephant printed harem pants. They all have them and they will wear them pretty much everywhere! By trying to be different, you actually end up being the same.

“Don’t worry about the money, man…”

“Don’t worry about the money, man…”

Okay so, most millennial travellers have not managed to save up or work for the money to go travelling all on their own. They have parents who pay for that stuff, but they would never tell you that! Normal people would need to budget for these things by using parking at airports deals.

5

They are not as environmentally friendly as they say they are

They are not as environmentally friendly as they say they are

“Dude it is so bad that we are using all of the planets resources on single use plastics” the hipster says as he boards one of the biggest carbon outputs on the planet - an airplane.

They’ll volunteer, but not in the places that need it the most

They’ll volunteer, but not in the places that need it the most

Plenty of travelling hipsters will claim that they have the strongest moral compass around, and yet they always seem to pick the most luxurious and pretty places to volunteer. Fancy helping to clear tons of human waste polluting the beaches? No thanks, i’d rather help these cute baby turtles get back to the ocean! Of course you would.

Hostels are more authentic

Hostels are more authentic

Are they, though? Really, what is the difference between your travel experience and someone staying in a hotel room? Namely the amount of people squished into one room is reduced and they’ll have the luxury of their own shower. Apart from that, not much. Just because you are staying in a hostel doesn't make your travels any more ‘authentic’ than anyone else's.

8

Travelling doesn't make you more interesting

Travelling doesn't make you more interesting

A lot of hipster travellers suffer from a narcissistic character. They think that traveling the world somehow makes them ten times more interesting than those people who have stayed at home, building a family and a career. People are interesting in different ways!

“I’m not a tourist, i’m travelling”

“I’m not a tourist, i’m travelling”

Are these not the same thing? The definition of a tourist is someone who is visiting a place that they have not been to before for a short period of time. Just because you are heading to another foreign country after the one that you are in doesn't make you a traveller rather than a tourist. You’re a tourist, face it.

They’ll update their Instagram on an hourly basis

They’ll update their Instagram on an hourly basis

No one wants to see every single thing that you are doing for twenty four hours a day, and we certainly don’t need ten pictures of the same monkey! Traveling hipsters will update their feeds on a regular basis with captions like “found my spirit animal in this monkey” or “so grateful to have found myself during my travels”.....ugh!
