The American Studying Abroad

This person never seems to study for their classes. And they drink a lot because they’re usually underage back home.

Your International Flatmate(s)

This person (or in my case people) are difficult to live with because of the language barrier, but somehow you make it work. You love them.

 

The Bar Man You Love

ALWAYS gives you extra stuff in your drink and a few on him.

The Bar Man You Hate

Charges you every. single. time.

The Techy

The Techy has G-Pros and selfie sticks and tripods and cannons and hand-held cameras and camera bags and a microchip in their wrist that tells the weather.

The Love of Your Life

You move to another country, meet the person who makes you laugh, feel pretty, safe, warm.. And then you have to leave him because your visa isn’t forever.

Your Friend Soul Mate

giphy (1)

This is the person who was born on another continent and speaks another language natively but seems to understand you more than the people you grew up with. You and this person will be friends forever and no matter the distance, you’ll always have stuff to talk about.

The Person You Pretend to Understand But Really Can’t

So they don’t talk English very well. But you nod in agreement all the same.

The A-Typical Backpacker

This person is usually pretty chill and game for anything. They live out of a backpackΒ and love the nomadic life. Y’all get along pretty well.

The Travel Snob

The stamp counting, country naming, activity story telling butt head you never want to see again.

The One with All the Booze

giphy

Somehow, this one person seems to always have booze. Sometimes its beer in a can while others is a flask of whiskey. You aren’t sure how they can afford all of it but don’t argue when they offer you some.

Yourself

You didn’t know you didn’t really know yourself. But you are so happy to have met the real you.

  1. Lol, that’s great list. I can easily fit most of the people I’ve met while studying abroad in those categories. πŸ™‚
