There are few certainties in life, but with a few seasons under our collective belts we’ve noticed a few trends over the years.  Here are the 7 types of people you’re guaranteed to meet when working a season…

summer takeover's seven types of people

The Ride or Die

Did we just become best friends??  

Meeting your Summer Takeover soul mate will undoubtedly be one of the highlights of your holiday.  They have your back, and you have theirs, through the highs (shots on the strip) to the lows (smearing aloe vera gel all over your sunburnt body).  They’ll be an absolute rock when the post-summer blues hit, you might want to put their number on speed-dial…

The Know It All

They’ll be able to tell you everything you need to know, from DJs confirmed on a venues line up to the temperature of the swimming pool.  Once you realise they’re making everything up as you go along, you’ll be laughing into your vodka coke each time they open their mouth…

The Social Media Celebrity

An aspiring model by day, this person won’t be seen poolside without eyelashes, heels and jewellery.  Usually found recreating poses seen on Kylie Jenner’s Instagram, if she ropes you into being her personal photographer for the day you’ll spend it trying to get the perfect ‘candid’ shot that she 100% knew was being taken…

The Liability

Likely to go MIA in the middle of a night out, and will reappear a couple of days later with zero explanation, wearing a mish mash of other people’s clothes and an unbothered expression.  Never go out on your own with them, look away for a second and they’ll be gone – if you manage to find them later they’ll probably be running riot along the strip, with a bottle of shots…

seven types of people you'll meet when working abroad

The Party Animal

A genetic marvel, no matter how much they drink the Party Animal will never experience a hangover.  Because they’ve never experienced the repercussions of constant binge drinking – they are an absolute machine that can’t be stopped, and the life and soul of any party.  Always game for a good time, they’ll use any excuse for a shot/cocktail/fish bowl.  Will look at you with suspicion if you mention “a quiet one”.  Most likely to have a signature dance move.

The Lightweight

Most likely to be heard exclaiming “I don’t know how I got so drunk last night!” – they have yet to accept that their alcohol tolerance levels aren’t up there with your average person’s, which hasn’t once ended well for them.  Between total memory loss, being sick, crying, fighting, injuries, lost belongings, and dreadful hangovers – they should probably stick to the WKDs, but are usually the ones that think it’ll be fun to split a bottle of Absinthe…

The Casanova

This person has roughly 3 holiday romances per week as a minimum, and knows exactly what to say to get someone to go for a midnight swim.  Part impressed, part disgusted, you’re not really sure what to make of it all, but you’ll give them credit – at least they’re consistent!


At least you know the entertainment is sorted…
