What’s Your Travel Personality?
Friday, July 10, 2009
Perhaps you have been on a trip with people where you spent time at similar destinations and attractions, but had completely different experiences. They enjoy filling every minute with action – and you couldn’t wait to get back to the hotel room to just relax. Or maybe you don’t understand why your traveling companion seems to resent your well-thought out itinerary and would rather just wing it.
• Love going to places you’ve never been?
• Keep your passport current – just in case?
• Laugh at the very idea of guide books?

• Sometimes like a relaxing vacation, sometimes a busy one?
• Handle the stress of travel without much anxiety?
• Like to be spontaneous and use the eenie, meenie, miney, moe kind of itinerary?
You’re an Easygoing Traveler
Low-maintenance people like you don’t need a big plan or a lot of sights to see. You like to go with the flow and are good relaxing by the pool or enjoying a night out. Pick a destination with plenty of options to choose from so you can create your own flow.
• Need to have a plan in place to reduce your stress?
• Want to know exactly what the hotel room looks like, where it is, and how to get there?
• Make sure you have a back-up plan for when things go wrong—because they will?
You’re a Structured Traveler
You don’t like surprises, so you plan details well in advance. You may prefer going to the same places each year to enjoy the familiar surroundings. Consider getting a vacation package that lets you book hotel, flight, car and activities well in advance. Many hotel sites let you see the rooms that you’ll be getting, too.
• Make a list of all possible activities – and then make sure you do them all?
• Find it hard to settle down in one location for very long?
• Get everyone up early and keep them going until they can’t stay awake anymore?
You’re an Active Traveler
You’ve worked hard, so you want to play hard and milk your vacation for all it’s worth. Look for places that have plenty of indoor and outdoor activities, as well as a comfortable hotel bed you can crash on at the end of your action-packed day. For example, Radisson hotels have Sleep Number beds that let you adjust the mattress firmness so it suits you perfectly.
Whatever your travel style, you can find destinations, vacation packages and hotel rooms to fit with Country Inns.
