All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware – Martin Buber
Today one can easily arrive at their destination, but we all have our different ways of getting there. So, what kind of traveler are you?
You’re an explorer, seeker of authentic travel experiences. A compulsive bucket-list keeper, you’ll pack as many destinations, sights and cultural experiences into your trip as time and energy allows. You’ve always got an eye out for the perfect souvenir and you’re up for sampling whatever the locals eat.
Top Destinations: India, South America, China
Cultural & History Buff
Cultural immersion is probably you’re favourite word when you’re reading up on things to see and places to explore. You prefer traveling solo as you seek freedom and time, to absorb and understand things at your own pace, be it history or architecture. Guidebooks and homestays is your go-to, as conversing with locals, attending regional festivals and going off the beaten path is your way of discovering how people truly live.
Top Destinations: Italy, Morocco, Cambodia
You’re dream is to get up close and personal with a herd of migrating wildebeest. You suffer from serious FOMOARWS (Fear of Missing Out on a Rare Wildlife Spectacle) which means you’ll happily spend hours crouched at a waterhole… waiting. You can pitch a tent in two minutes flat and you think everything tastes better when it’s been cooked on campfire.
Top Destinations: Kenya, Tanzania, Galapagos Islands
You’d much rather hit the designer shops than the beach, and you wouldn’t be caught dead in a sleeping bag. A great afternoon is one spent at a gallery opening rubbing shoulders with the ‘arterati’ followed by some serious people watching in a chic sidewalk café. You’ve sampled the signature dishes of all top restaurants and you know where to find the hottest nightlife action.
Top Destinations: New York, London, Singapore, Dubai
You look to challenge yourself through unique, immersive and adventurous travel expeditions that deliver a true sense of achievement. If you’re not climbing the nearest peak then you’re sandboarding or skydiving. Seeking activities that freak you out a little bit is your forte!
Top Destinations: New Zealand, South Africa, Spain
For you, holidays are about doing absolutely nothing – preferably while lying horizontal on a sun lounger. Exploring museums and galleries isn’t your style and the only souvenir you want to take home is a tan. Beach volleyball anyone? Pfffft… reaching for a pina colada is about as energetic as you’ll get.
Top Destinations: Barbados, Maldives, Greece
