Typical characteristics

You use expressions like “I did… (certain country)” to refer to the fact that you have been to a country. You love sightseeing and it is your biggest dream to see all seven world wonders before you die. Waiting in line for hours and being around big crowds of tourists is not a problem for you. In fact you love it because it means you have come to the right place to take the perfect selfie that will get more likes than all the other ones before that. You are going to do Latin America once and you are going to do it right.
