If you're mostly A's:
N A T U R E A D V E N T U R E - It seems like your ideal vacation is taking in all of nature's beauty and going on a hiking and/or camping extravaganza is it. I love being surrounded by nature and getting in some good exercise along the way through the hiking and adventures. Leave all the fashion and beauty at home because this trip is all about hanging with friends or family and just being real around the campfire drinking a beer at night. A nature adventure is also great for lower budgets and not as many days off, could work as a 3 day weekend trip.
If you're mostly B's:
C I T Y C H I C G E T A W A Y - Sometimes you want to get away to experience a city that's different from yours. Exploring the exciting hustle and bustle of NYC or LA can be a fun trip in itself. And not to mention the yummy restaurants, cool bars, and unique experiences that can only happen at those places. So just pick a fun and bustling city in the USA and go explore as if you were a local whether its a quick weekend trip or an entire week.
If you're mostly C's:
P A R I S I S F O R L O V E R S - In need of that ultimate couples getaway?? Paris will solve all of your problems. My husband and I are obsessed with traveling to Paris and fall in love with the city and each other more every time we go. Paris gives you that European and cultural experience to walk down the cobblestone streets, enjoy a lovely chat over a mid day rose and charcuterie, and explore the historical landmarks. I highly recommend taking at least 4-6 days to fully immerse yourself in the Parisian culture to unwind and enjoy this way of life. Paris is both relaxing and luxurious all at the same time.
If you're mostly D's:
T R O P I C A L P A R A D I S E- A little vitamin C could never hurt, especially when it's overlooking a gorgeous beach sunset with a drink in your hand. Now that sounds like a vacation I need more than once a year ha! If you need to just relax and unwind, this is such a hassle free and great way to escape. The great thing about a tropical paradise is you can make it as cheap or as luxurious as you want by picking a local beach nearby or flying to a tropical paradise on some island. It's all up to you on what you want your vacation to be and probably takes the least planning of all of the vacations I have been on. Basically just get there and wander to find some good food and views.
If you're mostly E's:
C U L T U R A L E X P E R I E N C E- Exploring a new culture can be so exciting, especially if you go somewhere you have no clue about! Whether it's a large city in China or small town in Thailand, there is literally so much to be seen. You are up for adventure and are not afraid to be outside your comfort zone to learn so much. Going to a foreign country with friends or family really brings you all together and leaves you with memories you will never forget. These types of trips will need the most time spent since the flights may be long, most money to explore and see everything you want, and most time to plan beforehand. These can seem daunting but trust me they are worth it.
