People travel for various reasons – it can be a journey of self-discovery, for others a broadening of cultural horizons or even a culinary quest. Everyone has different types of traveling – some may have a combination of a few styles.
You travel to gain a deeper understanding of architecture and history. You want to learn about the culture and heritage of places and you enjoy imparting your new-found knowledge to others. Your travels are well documented with photography, videos, and articles in a journal. You prefer to stay at luxury hotels and like to travel in style, comfort and security. You like to visit all of the important landmarks and museums, so a very articulate schedule is followed to ensure the ultimate experiences.
The Thrill Seeker
You have an insatiable need to travel and experience everything exciting. You like traveling with your tribe and encouraging others to find adventure in their travels. You are not concerned with planning or where you stay, as long as you are in the thick of the action. Your energy is contagious and you need a picture/video or 2 of your adventures to share with your followers.
Travel feeds your soul. Immersing yourself in the culture and day-to-day life of the people of a place is something that comes to you naturally. You tend to enjoy slow travel and extended periods of stay. You can be found at hostels, eating local food and drinking beer at the local watering hole. The Free-Spirits of travel – traveling far and traveling light.
You usually only travel to attend a function, convention, sporting event or concert. Your trip revolves around the occasion you are traveling for. All your money goes into preparing for the and finding the best places to stay close to the event. It’s not even about travel at this point…it’s all about the occasion.
You book the best hotel with every amenity you can think of so you don’t have to leave the hotel at all. You travel during peak seasons (work/school holiday time) and you will stay for 7-14 days. Your itinerary is pretty non-existent and you will usually go with the flow of the group you are traveling with.
Non-stop eating vibes. You will sample everything there is to taste. You visit the most expensive restaurants at your destination but will also indulge in street food as a midnight snack. Room service is on speed dial in case you come across something that looks good to order. Food festivals at the best.
The Nature Lover
You want to venture to the unexplored and uncharted territories. You shy away from urban city locales, and seek to expand their world-view with indigenous, non-mainstream experiences. A cabin on the lake, or a mountainous terrain is ideal. You indulge in hiking and cycling long trails and sitting around camp fires in the evenings. You hope to see and expose your travel companions to the beauty of natural scenery of the world.
