5. The builder of things
The builder of things is a traveler who relishes a challenge and who doesn’t mind getting their hands dirty. They are relaxed, practical travelers and aren’t afraid of hard work that comes with little or no material reward — that isn’t why they’re there. It could be constructing homes for underprivileged families in Vietnam, or helping to build a community church in Kenya — what matters to them is building something physical that can change the lives of many and will remain for years to come.
- Most likely to be found carrying bricks and mortar, or chatting with locals in the midday sun.
