Quick! Close your eyes and picture your ideal itinerary. Whether you’re strolling the streets of Paris with a companion (and croissant in hand!), or sunbathing solo on a Hawaiian beach, the getaway you yearn to take is like a window to your tastes, traits, and aspirations. Read on to learn what your dream vacation says about you!
Long to visit Iceland? You’re an observant leader.
Like something out of a fairy tale, where near-neon Northern Lights warm up the night sky and geysers rival skyscrapers for sheer dramatic effect, Iceland is a world of unique splendor. And it appeals to you not only because you recharge in nature, but because you’re an out-of-the-box thinker who is more than comfortable with forging your own course. A true trendsetter, you’re always spotting the rare and wonderful, be it a hot new restaurant or an exotic travel locale.
Dreaming of Paris? You’re a resourceful free spirit.
With art on every corner — including in the pastry shops brimming with decadent inventions — the City of Light is a beacon for creative types like you. More than that, Paris is an “open-ended story,” a place of meandering streets and endless history that allows you to lose yourself in the best way possible. You’re so imaginative and independent, you don’t need a firm itinerary (or even a map!) to guide you. It’s the exploration itself that you find most rewarding.
Want to tour Tuscany? You’re a complex idealist.
The region where the Renaissance took root is still a cultural marvel. But what makes Tuscany unique is its blend of cosmopolitan sophistication and rural romance. Whether you yearn to take in its many museums or simply sip wine while drinking in the landscape, you’re just as multifaceted and complicated as Italy itself.
Are the beaches of Hawaii calling? You’re a nuanced, visual thinker.
A feast for the senses, the Hawaiian islands reflect your joyful energy. Highly sensitive to even the most subtle of changes in your environment, you likely have a flair for decor and design, and infuse your home with natural touches and lush plants that remind you of the paradise you’ll one day visit.
Is Australia your dream getaway? You’re a detail-oriented doer.
Bold and assertive, you never let anything stop you, and your travel aspirations are as lofty as your personal goals. More than meticulous, you won’t embark on your dream trip until every detail is planned to perfection. After all, Australia is a once-in-a-lifetime destination, and you wouldn’t have it any other way.
