Travel is a good thing. It gets us away from our desks, pumps money into local economies and exposes us to new cultures and adventures. But for the locals of a particular area, tourists can be a nightmare. Would you want to live in a spot that's overcrowded with outsiders who don't always care what they leave in their path? So, locals have come up with names for whatever breed of tourists frequent their towns. If you hear any of these terms, realize that you might have overstayed your welcome.
