The Right Vacation for Your Personality


Everyone’s chronological list of vacation’s taken generally follows the same path. When we are younger, we visit amusement parks like Disney World with our parents. Around 11, families move to the cruise line, where both the parents and kids have something they like on board. Around 18, we decide its time to take our own trip and invariably head for somewhere hot with our friends. As we mature into adults, we circle back to taking our own kids to the amusement parks.

Finally, around the age of 50, you have the right income level, decision-making skills, and freedom to go wherever you want. So now, how do you decide? You could go where your friends go, spin a globe, or find the vacation that’s on sale. If you have a bit of time to think, however, look at your personality to find your perfect retreat.

High-energy: South America

You love people, music, culture, and food. You love dancing and lights, and probably are the life of the party wherever you go.

South America is for you. With lots of high-energy carnivals, friendly locals, and high-tempo music, you will feel right at home.

San Nicolas, Argentina

Scholar: Old Europe

When you go on vacation, you want to learn, it’s your version of relaxing.

Try Old Europe. Whether your scholarly discipline of choice is history, architecture, wine, scripture, or any other library-bound topic, Europe has something for you.

London, England

Laid-back: Bahamas

Vacation to you means one thing: no more clocks.

The Bahamas is known for its island lifestyle. Take a week on the beach, eat whenever you feel ready, and rise with the chirping of real birds, not a ringtone bird.

Nassau, Bahamas

History Buff: Havana, Cuba

Until recently, Cuba was relatively cut off from the rest of the world. Now, it’s a cultural hotspot. With distinct periods of history that can be seen in the various area’s architecture, Havana is now a must-go for the history-lover.

Extroverted: Tokyo, Japan

You are people-oriented, outgoing, and love a good party.

Japan is the place for you. With bars, restaurants, clubs, and hotels aimed at getting people to talk, your extroversion will be the norm.

Introverted: Algonquin Park, Canada

Your version of a holiday is one as far away from human interaction as humanly possible.

Luckily, you don’t have to go far. Canada is full of amazing National Parks that can make you feel a million miles from the closest neighbour.

Try Algonquin National Park. One of Canada’s largest, you can take an entire week of isolated activities and never see the same spot twice.
