This kind of traveller, invariably complains on TripAdvisor, that hotel rooms and lifts in Europe are too small, that lights go out when the generator stops in safari and eco lodges, or that prices at restaurants around the Duormo in Florence, or Sydney Harbour on Circular Quay with wonderful views of World Heritage Listed architectural treasures are too expensive!
They get bored watching wildlife because, once you have seen one lion, they all look the same!
The inappropriate expectations traveller needs a reality check, or possibly, to consider not leaving their home town, or country of origin!
At home they will of course, never be concerned an hotel room was too small, the lift too tiny, or the prices too expensive at iconic locations; then again, maybe they will, because nothing ever quite lives up to their expectations. They do, after all need something to complain about.
These kind of travellers can be a real killjoy as travel companions, or amongst a tour group. Everything will always be too expensive, too small, or not as good as what they left behind in their own country.
The inappropriate expectations traveller will always have their enjoyment of a place or attraction, or even dining experience marred by the need to compare it to standards that apply to their home country and usually limited experience.
Saddest of all, these kinds of travellers usually lack the insight to thoroughly research their accomodation and trip in advance. They should always check to ensure internet access is free and uninterrupted, not, God forbid, non-existent. They should book into hotels that are just like the ones they are familiar with at home, the kind that are indistinguishable from one country to another. They should ensure power will run 24/7 and that hot water will run, even in the remotest places on earth for their shower. They should only ever travel places colonised by fast food outlets, so they can eat at Macdonald's, where they can pretty much be gauranteed cheap and predictable menu items, just like they could have eaten at home.
The inappropriate expectations travellers seem to miss the whole point of travelling in the first place; to meet, experience and learn from people unlike yourself. To discover more about humanity, human achievement, diverse places, species and eco systems. Part of every genuine traveller's experience involves a willingness and desire, to step outside of one's comfort zone and be open to new and sometimes testing experiences!
