I am a multi type traveler. Given all those options, I can say that I love to do most forms of travelling. love the museums, sight-seeing, learning, but also love a good relaxing on the beach kind of vacation. Am happy with middle of the road accomadations, but certainly won't turn down a luxury suite if its in the cards!

First off, sorry this is so late. Secondly, I didn't plan a trip, because I couldn't with my lack of computer and my phones limitations. I did do the quiz, though. here
