If you don’t choose to go solo when you take a trip, choosing your travelling companion is extremely important. Your companion could be your lover, your spouse, a friend, a buddy, or even a pet. Things can easily go wrong during a trip: lost luggage, lost documents or credit cards, cancelled reservations, delayed flights, unexpected weather conditions, health issues, and so on. It is good to have a positive person with you when the unexpected happens, someone who will help you turn the unanticipated into an adventure. In other words, you want a person who is alto-astral, as they say in Brazilian Portuguese. Here are seven ways to say that in English. The words for an alto-astral person are in italics. Fill in the blanks with the opposite of each of the ideal travelling companion type, the ones you don’t want with you on a trip.
High-spirited people are fun to travel with because they are always enthusiastic and ready to see the humor in any situation, even when something goes awry. They usually have an abundance of positive energy. The opposite of a high-spirited person is an person; they are the ones who answer, “whatever” when asked to give an opinion.
People who are generally in a good mood are also excellent travelling companions because they simply expect everything to turn out all right, and don’t get stressed easily if problems do arise. The opposite of this person is a person, which is a person who shifts their emotions frequently and seemingly without reason.
People who have sunny dispositions usually lift other people’s spirits and they never get dramatic or spend time counting all the things that have gone wrong in a day. The opposite of a sunny person is a person, a person who is normally sad or dejected.
Upbeat people will brighten any situation with their humor. Their laughter releases endorphins and helps them better manage the stress of an unwanted situation. They have the self-confidence to know not to worry too much about something that is out of their control. The opposite of an upbeat person is a person, one who usually thinks bad things are probably going to happen.
Cheerful people don’t generally sweat the small stuff, and they mostly expect highs and lows on any trip, which helps them to cope well. The opposite of a cheerful person is a person, in other words, a person who is irritable, bad-tempered and complaining.
Positive people look towards the good side of things and have an innate intelligence about what they can or cannot achieve by speaking up, complaining or even threatening. They do not waste words and are respectful to the company representatives they have to deal with when things go wrong. The opposite of a positive person is, obviously, a person. This kind of person will focus on what might go wrong or went wrong, and they love to complain about it. They are the people who invariably see the glass as half empty.
And then there are the people who simply exude good vibrations, and they always make it easier to deal with problems because they can easily engage with just about anyone. The opposite of a person who has good vibes is a person. This type of person generally believes that only selfishness motivates human actions; they rarely believe in the integrity or sincerity of other people. This makes them distrustful travel companions who will continually think that someone is exploiting them.
