Jason and I are not the same types of travelers. We make a great team, but I'm usually the catalyst with a travel wishlist a mile long. I want to experience as many different cultures, food, and religions as authentically as I can. See places that have lots of historical significance. Understand art in the context in which it was created. Basically, travel is what makes my heart beat faster.
Jason wants to be outside in nature. See natural wonders. Go to places with beautiful beaches and spend all of his time outdoors. He likes to go with the flow when he travels and likes other people to plan for him.
Where we converge is that we are NOT "relax at the beach/pool" types of people. (Not that there's anything wrong with that.) We constantly want to be experiencing something new. We're both problem solvers and don't get ruffled when things don't go our way. Balance is the key for us with regard to activities. Also, Jason lets me plan. This works out great for me because I generally have a pretty specific idea of what I want to accomplish everywhere I go. As long as I include some outdoorsy things, Jason is a happy camper.
We both took this quiz a while back that describes each of us pretty well. It also lists travel destinations that would be ideal for each personality type.
I'm a Mid-Venturer. Jason is a Mid-Authentic.
What type of traveler are you?
