Your travel persona
Leave it to the Huffington Post to always have some odd travel post. Today, a writer posted a blog on “Where to go based on your favorite alcoholic beverage.” I’m not much of a drinker — and, apparently, the HuffPo deemed it appropriate to start with the booze (leave it to the journalists) — but when I do drink, I go for the vodka bottle. According to the HuffPo, that means I dig urban environments and boutique hotels. The writer also says this means I’m self-aware and to-the-point in my communications. Makes sense, I suppose.
But man can’t travel by drinking preferences alone, right? So I canvassed the HuffPo — home to every “Where to go based on X, Y or Z” list on Earth — to find other similar stories to build a “travel persona” for yours truly. My results:
Where to travel based on your personality type: This was one was tricky, as I felt I fit into several categories, but I ultimately went with “scholarly,” which says I should go somewhere where logic and innovation are appreciated. Suggested destination: Florence, Italy.
Where to travel based on your American Girl doll: I posted a link to this the other day, and I don’t own any dolls (shocking, I know), but, if I were a little girl, I’d probably want Felicity or Samantha. Suggested destinations: Vienna, Austria or Tuscany, Italy.
Where to go based on your favorite alcoholic beverage: As we’ve already mentioned, I need to go somewhere urban. Suggested destination: Madrid, Spain.
Tripzard: This site asks you oodles of questions, from ideal weather, to how concerned are you about crime, and how you like to eat on vacation. Suggested destinations: San Antonio, Hawaii, USVI, Portugal, Greece.
There you have it: I like urban environments, warmish weather and intellectual places, so I should head to Europe. Since I can’t afford Europe, I’ll have to settle for Greek food down the street from my house and then a trip to the art museum. What’s your travel persona?
