As I’ve traveled to different places, I have noticed a pattern in a certain type of people I saw in the more well-known places. Think Paris, London, Barcelona and yes, also Amsterdam. These fascinating individuals were mostly spotted in groups, seeming to be completely unaware of their surroundings and mostly crammed together in a small fraction of the city center.
I’m talking of course about the stereotype referred to as “tourists“. I always wonder why people choose to behave in a certain way: is it insecurity to travel alone, or do they simply love traveling in like-minded groups? Sometimes I do wonder however if that’s the case, when I look at the mostly sad faces staring out of a 60-person coach. But, as I said before, I spotted a few patterns that shine a satirical light on the behavior and actions of the tourists we’ve all encountered more than once. I’m not here to judge, but simply to observe.
