The Doers, the Watchers, the Wanderers.
You may or may not know that Travelers are made up of different categories. This article could help you to identify the people you meet in your sojourn. To quote Ben Groundwater of the Sydney Morning Herald.
The Doers, arrive with expectations: they line up at the museums to see the important pieces, take the open-topped bus tour around the city to get their bearings, climb all the things that are there to be climbed, see all the things that are supposed to be seen, and, if they do all that, walk away thinking mission accomplished.
The Watchers, on the other hand, prefer a less mapped out experience. Theyre the kind of traveler who could spend a whole afternoon in one café, sipping coffee after coffee or beer after beer, chatting to people, and watching the citys life go by.
The Wanderers, are those with no fixed ideas on what to do, or where to go. There is no real purpose for traveling, its just another place in which to do what they want to do at home hang out, get drunk, and lie in the sun. Not that theres anything wrong with that.
Now, which category do you belong or are you some what in the middle?

We are a family of three, living in Chiangrai which is a province in the North of Thailand. We love to interact with travellers from different parts of the world and hope to learn and appreciate each other's customs, culture and religion. Hopefully this will create a harmonious world to live in.
We have been host to several travellers who came to home stay and thus, have amassed more than five years of experience. Check this out: http://freewebs.com/homestaytravel
