Glampacking, poorpacking, road-tripping, eco-traveling, cultural traveling, gastro traveling... Phew! The list of travel styles go on and on. That's the beauty of this pursuit, we can shape our travel plans based on what suits our personality. From our choice of destination, our itinerary, even minute details such as our travel bags, our taste reflects our travel identity. Although I admit, sometimes our preferences seem to contradict our personalities. Like in my case, I love the islands and beaches you'd think I'm a backpack/duffle bag kind of girl but I'm a trolley type. More often than not, I'd rather endure the pain of dragging my trolley on the sand than carry a heavy load on my shoulders. But that's just me - hard to figure out.

Lois and I had been talking about the different people we've met on our travels and this inspired us to come up with the quiz on travel personalities. It's something we've devised on one of our brainstorms- just purely for fun. So if you are wondering about the kind of travel personality you have, get your pen and note pad ready!

Here you go:

    Had a hard time answering the quiz! :) I answered mostly Bs (the romantic) though, with one C (navigator). Contradictory, I know. Then again, I suppose many travelers are a hybrid of personality types. Mostly I just try to go with the flow, so I suppose all of the answers can actually apply depending on the situation, though perhaps not "a" in Scenario 1 hehe.
