Who are the worst travelers/backpackers you have ever met? For me it is the Finns. Holy shit they are autistic and I say this as a Norwegian who are notorious for being socially moronic
>meet up
>the guy does not smile when we greet
>is just quiet, and refuses to hold the conversation going, gives simple one word responses
>insults my English proficiency because he claimed I used the wrong terminology (I didn’t)
>randomly stops and takes pictures of planes
>only has one set of clothing and washes them in the sink for the whole trip (1-2 months)
>rest goes alright. When we are about to part ways instead of saying goodbye, he runs/waddles on a red light and fricks off, sending me a message saying goodbye
2nd Finn
>more social antennas, but holy frick is it hard to keep the convo going
>refuses to ask questions back
>talks about his alcohol habits and his education and nothing else

    You forgot to mention the bad part. Finndude is introverted, fails to compliment you on your English, wants to keep to himself, and saves money on laundry. That is really the worst traveling person you have ever met? Wow, you have a lot of life to live.

    Europeans in general have awful senses of humor and pretty frigid personalities. Bunch of joyless homosexuals.

      Maybe the northerners
      I'm fricking hilarious, and my buddies are too. But you would be probably turned off by our antisemitism, racism, national chauvinistic statements and alike.
      Or maybe they just don't like USA. I mean, I avoid Serbs

    Germans. Because holy shit, they are fricking everywhere. You can travel for 200 miles across a single lane dirt road and if there's a hostel at the end, there'll be Germans there, and they'll be complaining about the lack of proper bread in this country.

    That's it? You didn't get robbed, assaulted, or molested? You woke up with all your kidneys? He didn't even snore? Your entire complaint is that the random guy you met up with had mild aspergers?
    What a lame fricking thread. Go backpack in Eastern Europe for a month. You'll get 10x worse on the first night.

    Worst are probably South Americans while they can be fun to party with, backpacking or spending any outdoor time with them is a stupid decision.

    Best probably have to be Americans they are always fun to backpack and travel with there’s such a sense of adventure with them I never been able to feel with anybody else, never met more generous people in my life backpacking across the states.
