About This Quiz

There's a quote that says, "travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer," and it couldn't be more accurate. The experiences you have, things you try and quality time you spend with yourself, nature and whoever you're traveling with all add more to your life than money ever could. You'll come back from your travels with a newfound appreciation for what you have and all the beautiful places this world has given you. What's the best part of traveling? Well, that entirely depends on who you are as a person. Maybe you only travel for work and don't get away on many vacations. Would you travel differently for work than pleasure?

Traveling for work usually means you don't get to see the sights, sounds and smells of the location you're traveling to. But if you really wanted to, you could find a way to get a good experience outside the conference room at your hotel. Traveling for pleasure is a whole different game. You're more likely to bring fun clothes, guide books and leave plenty of room in your suitcase for trinkets you pick up along the way. What kind of traveler do you think you are, whether you're traveling for work or for fun? Take this quiz to find out!
