Ever wonder where to go according to your personality?

Ever wonder where to go according to your personality?


With a limited amount of vacation time throughout the year, it is vital that any type of journey you intend to do, is to the correct destination where you will enjoy every minute of it. While we all love travel in a general sense, the truth is that there are so many types of trips and travelers, as personalities on the planet. For some, the idea of disappearing without a cell phone or human contact for a week sounds like a small piece of paradise, while others prefer to live in the lap of luxury in some urban destination.

In the following list we will take a look at the different types of trips according to the personality of each traveler with the hope that it will make it much easier to choose your next destination. Whether it’s an African safari or a hammock on the Pacific islands, your journey is waiting for you!

The Classic Journey
They are types of trips that are organized with love and consistency. For that reason, traveling to a new place without a safe plan will be stressful. These travelers get satisfaction from organization and order and they love being in charge. They will prefer a fully-services and tailor-made vacation, where everything is designed for them. In turn they will be more attracted to guided tours and often local visits. Try a holiday through the wineries of Tuscany, Italy. You will not be able to aim for a more classic trip than this one.

The Harmonic Journey
Ideal for travelers who give great value to peace and harmony. In their daily lives they feel a deep responsibility towards others, so in their free time, they know that they deserve a little time to focus on themselves. If this is your case, we recommend a retreat to Amanjena in Marrakech, Morocco. Ideal to relax.

The Cultural Journey
The regular travelers at these types of trips love to have intellectual discussions and often have a very high cultural level. The vacations that can keep you intellectually stimulated will be the most satisfying. Try a trip to a place with a lot of history and art. With tons of museums, university campuses and a rich history of literature, such as London, the perfect destination.

The Wild Journey
They are types of travel for independent people and that adapt easily. They enjoy being outdoors and have a penchant for extreme and exciting activities. If this is your case, you will surely enjoy a liberating trip where you can travel alone or with some friends and immerse yourself in the open air. New Zealand is the ideal place, because while you are there you can try some of the crazy activities that New Zealand is known for, including bungee jumping, canyoning and parachuting.

The Academic Trip
This journey is for thinkers. For those who love logic and innovation, philosophy and art. We recommend a visit to Florence, Italy, where the impressive architecture, art and history of the Renaissance live, it will delight you. A tour of Florence’s cathedral and the dome designed by Filippo Brunelleschi will leave you breathless.

The Tranquil Journey
Those who join this modality are cheerful, and will enjoy a holiday in the Maldives Islands. A day at the beach could involve relaxing, diving, sailing or a game of beach volleyball. At night, you can go for dinner to one of your luxury hotels restaurants. Just sit back, relax and do nothing.

The Unconventional Trip
It is an artistic and idealistic journey. Ideal for hedonistic people who enjoy living, and lead unconventional lifestyles, which are often in search of authenticity or meaning. A trip to India would make you very happy, if this is your case. With a rich history and tradition of spirituality, with these types of trips you can continue your search for a meaningful life. India also has a vibrant artistic scene; Bollywood, poetry and literature.

The Party/ Social life lovers Journey
For group travelers that love to socializing, these types of trips are intense, but fun is the guaranteed element. If you identify with this travelers, you will love escaping to a party destination where you can meet new people, hang out with friends and dance the night away. For endless socializing in a great location, nothing really can beat Ibiza.

The Extreme Journey
These types of trips are energetic, intense, and ideal for those who like to stay active. Addicted to adrenaline and sports fans, so they never stop moving. Clearly, the extreme journey is for them. Sign up to jump with the heli-ski between mountains, or descend in a cage to swim with white sharks in South Africa.

The Artistic Journey
For those who love art, music and writing, and feel better when they come to share their artistic passions with others, they will enjoy more of a trip to a city with a rich literary and artistic history. Paris is a great place to start. There are thousands of attractions; from the Louvre and the Musee d’Orsay to the cafés where Hemingway drank coffee, to the bohemian streets of Montmartre.

The Ecological Journey
Ideal for those who care deeply about others and the world around them. These travelers would benefit from an ecotourism vacation where they will get to relax, experience nature, while they can be sure that they will not have a negative impact on the environment. There are a lot of options for this, but we recommend a trip to the Galapagos Islands, where you can learn about the delicate ecosystem preserved day by day, and even swim with sea lions and penguins.

The Competitive Trip
These types of trips are ideal for hard-working and competitive travelers. Competitive travelers love to drive, prosper, and be in charge. They often devote themselves to extremely stressful careers, which means they are seriously in need of a little free time to rest and recharge. We would like to send these guys to some place of luxury and relaxation, where they will be pampered and cared for. The Four Seasons Resort Maui in Wailea should serve. Forbes has named it one of the best beach resorts in the world and is great for both relaxation and outdoor activity, so it can satisfy your competitive side. When you return home, in addition, you can boast about your epic escape.
