Mostly A’s: If most of your answers are A’s, you are a wild person in search of adrenaline and breathlessness. You love to move and take risks almost as much as you like boasting about those risks to your friends after. For these reasons, a ski trip in the Swiss alps would be the best one for you—you can race down increasingly hard trails with your friends and finish off an exhausting day with a good drink and raucous conversation by a warm fire only to start the day again tomorrow.
Mostly B’s: You are clearly an intellectual. You search for new knowledge everywhere you go and enjoy figuring things out. A solo cultural trip to the Machu Picchu would be ideal for you, a trip during which you are immersed in a new culture and soak up all the knowledge you can while no one disturbs you or your quest and an opportunity at a whole new outlook on the world.
Mostly C’s: You like things to be simple and fun, and so long as the company is good, you don’t mind what you are doing. For you, the ideal trip would be a stay in a Caribbean All-Included hotel where you could spend your days laughing and drinking on a beach with your most important friends. You want to relax, let go of your life back home, live in the moment and enjoy, and this low-effort sea-shore trip is the best way to do it.
