    Here's mine:
    You are a "Centric-Venturer Traveler".

    You fit between Venturers and Authentics but with a leaning towards the Venturer side. Three out of ten travelers (30%) place in your group, making you one of the largest segments of travelers. You have a broad interest in travel and are more flexible and adaptable than both Authentics and Venturers, with a willingness to sample new destinations.

    Unlike Venturers, you prefer at least a modest selection of good hotels before you visit an area. You also favor destinations where you're sure to find food that can be trusted and an efficient transportation system. But, when over-commercialization sets in, signified by many souvenir shops, the intrusion of fast food outlets, and the diesel smell from too many tourist buses, you will move on.

    The great capitals of Europe have long been favorites, but some of these now seem overcrowded and far too expensive. Therefore, when you go to Europe you might visit smaller towns and enjoy leisurely drives through the countryside. And, when you go into villages, you particularly enjoy staying at quaint inns in contrast to well-known hotels.

    Your interest in a diverse set of destinations means you could enjoy a cruise in the Greek Isles, a car trip through gold mining ghost towns in California, or a shopping spree in New York City equally well. You will probably return to a place that you particularly like every two to four years, interspersing other new destinations in between. In some respects, you can have the most satisfying travel experiences because of your ability to absorb, and like, such different types of places. If you follow the typical pattern for your personality, you travel both independently (probably with a spouse or a friend) and occasionally take a fully escorted tour. This might include international tours and domestic to see New England's fall colors, a visit to Southern mansions, or follow historic routes as part of a tour group. Depending upon your age, the Elderhostel program is largely made up of your type.

    While you don't enjoy large cruise ships, you've decided that smaller cruises are more interesting than you ever thought. You especially like the fact that cruises are easy and comfortable ways to explore new places because your hotel room goes with you wherever you are and you don't have to pack and unpack every day.

    You don't mind flying, but you're also content to drive to your destination. And unlike many of those towards the authentic end of the scale, you sometimes fly to your destination and then rent a car so you can explore on your own. You also mix up the kinds of lodging that you use. On the same trip you might stay at a three or four star hotel, an economy/budget motel, and a B&B.

    MEDIA HABITS: You enjoy quite a few shows on TV, read an occasional book, and some of the popular magazines.

    SHOPPING: You don't like paying more for anything than you have to, so while you might be interested in newfangled technological gadgets, you won't actually purchase them until they have proven themselves in the marketplace and their prices have dropped. In general, you stick to popular brands, believing that they've earned their prominence in the marketplace on their quality and reliability.

    SPORTS: You participate in sports such as golf, tennis, or basketball in your spare time and when you travel you enjoy leisurely hikes and bike rides.

    Suggested trips:

    DOMESTIC

    * Take a tour of the national parks in the U.S., especially by driving to these destinations.
    * Stay at Hana Maui resort on the remote west coast of Maui.
    * Check into a full-service spa in Arizona or New Mexico.
    * Take a small, more personally guided tour of Southern plantation homes.
    * Fly to San Francisco, rent a car and tour Redwood National Park, the Wine Country, and the small towns north of the Bay Area.

    ABROAD

    * Take a SeaDream Yacht Club cruise from Alexandria, Egypt, to Piraeus, Greece.
    * Rent a car and drive around Sicily.
    * Check into the beachfront Canouan Island resort in the Grenadines.
    * Sightsee in Bangkok, Istanbul, or Shanghai.
    * Hike in New Zealand.
    * Visit the souks, bazaars, and mosques of Cairo.
    * Hideout at a luxury resort in the Seychelles.
    * Sightsee in Tokyo and nearby towns.
    * Book a walking safari in Zambia.
    * Take a historical tour of St. Petersburg and Moscow.
    * Snorkel in Fiji.
    * Take a historical tour of Pompeii.
    * Explore the ruins on Angkor Wat with a private guide.
    * Attend a music festival in Salzburg.
    * Take the family to an all-inclusive resort in Costa Rica

    Your are a "Mid-Venturer Traveler".
    You have an insatiable intellectual curiosity, abundant common sense, and a friendly, outgoing personality. This combination of character traits usually contributes to success in your career. You are likely to hold a senior position of responsibility in your company and will continue to advance in the future. You're also an opinion leader. Others look to you for guidance and direction on what to buy, choices to make in their lives, and the kinds of trips that they might like to take.

    You love to travel, especially to foreign destinations and you seek new experiences and new destinations for almost all trips you take. You enjoy being physically active on trips but unlike your pure venturer friends, you don't want to take such extreme vacations and are more likely to plan your trips—set an itinerary of places you want to visit and schedules when you will be there. You also insist on a comfortable bed at night (sleeping under the stars generally doesn't interest you), a warm shower, and meals that you can trust rather than taking a chance on native foods. You listen carefully to the unique travel tales of your friends and associates, or read heavily, to learn about the hidden, out-of-the-way places that have not yet become popular or have only recently gotten some publicity. Another name for your group is the jet-set. Your interest in what's new and what's happening leads you to be one of the first to visit destinations that seem to have a new ambience, or book a few days at a new spa or resort you read about in a travel magazine, or tour a country that until recently was closed to visitors.

    History holds a great fascination for many mid-venturers. But if you've seen Buckingham Palace and the Eiffel Tower, or traced Paul Revere's route in New England, you don't need to repeat the experience. Rather, you'd prefer to stop in lesser-known cities or seek out an ancient monastery or old fort that may not be listed in most guidebooks.

    MEDIA HABITS: Typically you read more than most—books, magazines and newspapers—and watch TV less. Consistent with your travel interests, you particularly like fact-based television shows or dramas in a historic setting, and programs that explain the workings of some of our modern marvels. You hold strong opinions about much of what you see happening in the world, especially politics, and strongly prefer commentators who agree with your views.

    SHOPPING: You like technology but typically you will not be the first to try out new hi-tech products. You're likely to get on the bandwagon when the new product or service has shown that it has some relevance to your daily business or home life. But you are still willing to buy these items long before they have become so popular that they have dropped dramatically in price.

    SPORTS:Exercise and good health habits—proper diet, some use of vitamins and supplements, and following a disciplined routine to get enough sleep and exercise, even when you travel—is likely to be part of your daily routine.

    Suggested trips:

    DOMESTIC


    Take a luxury pack trip through Colorado's Ute Mountain Tribal Park.
    Kayak around Kauai.
    Consider a rafting trip down the Grand Canyon, or a mule ride up and down the canyon.
    Take a helicopter trip on the big island of Hawaii to see sights that few others do.
    Drive on route 49 through the gold country of California.
    Snorkel or scuba dive in one of the less-popular Caribbean islands, such as Bonaire.

    ABROAD


    Scuba dive around the Bay Islands, Honduras.
    Drive the coast of Portugal.
    Take a multi-sport tour of the Netherlands.
    Balloon around northern Thailand.
    Spend a week at a dive resort in the Maldives.
    Check into a Dead Sea spa.
    Go truffle sniffing in France or Monaco.
    Take a gastronomic tour of Lyon.
    Rent a National Trust property in the English countryside.
    Track the footsteps of the Ottoman Empire in Turkey with a private guide.
    Take a cruise on a small luxury line such as Seabourn or Silversea, with customized shore excursions.
    Check out Malaysia's Langkawi, for its remoteness and its very comfortable accommodations.
    Pamper yourself at the St. Regis on Bora Bora.
    Explore the sights of Jaipur, India, or Kyoto, Japan.
    Take a luxury tour of Bhutan.
    Christine + Will (married 7/20/07) + Ainsleigh (born 6/25/08) + Nolan (born 11/9/10) + Delaney (born 12/31/13) = One Very Happy Family!

            Thanks for that, it was fun.
