Added more than 6 travel destinations for 2019 ~ 2020
Improved destination-picking system - Oct 2019
Do you travel?
No, almost never
You see something which you really like but it is ridiculously expensive. What would you do?
I can get whatever I want, money is no object
Perhaps I can buy it once I get paid next month
I can forget about it, I'm already in debt!
You are driving along a mountain road and you approach a fork with three possible paths. Which path would you choose?
The well-marked path which everyone else follows
The lesser-known path which only a few travel
The unmarked path that promises amazingly spectacular views
Finally, it’s the WEEKEND! A friend invites you to a party, and another friend asks you to go for an outing. Which option would you go for?
I am a party animal, so I would definitely choose the party!
This is a difficult choice to make. Perhaps someone else could make this decision for me
Parties are far too noisy. Rather take me on a small trip to the countryside
By the age of 30, some people are looking to find a quiet place somewhere and retire there for the rest of their lives. What are your thoughts on this?
My career only started when I was 30! I am not the type of person who just wants to relax and be lazy
This is a beautiful dream. However, I would have to wait until I am at least 50 years old
These are my thoughts exactly! I am working extremely hard for this goal
This is already my reality
Would you ever try bungee jumping?
I have done this before. Best experience ever!
I am eager to try it sometime
I kind of want to try it but I am a bit scared
I really do not understand why on earth humans ever created this sport? Do they enjoy being tortured?
Do you believe that aliens exist?
There must be! Otherwise how would you explain crop circles, pyramids, Mayan Civilisation and UFOs?
Perhaps. There are already so many movies about it
Not a chance
There are billions of stars in the Milky Way similar to the Sun. With high probability, some of these stars have Earth-like planets. So I believe aliens exist.
Which occupation is more attractive to you?
None of the above
It is said that if you genuinely want to know a place, you have to visit its local market. How do you feel about this statement?
I love visiting markets. I enjoy the feeling of integrating into local culture
If I pass by, I will check it out
It’s so messy and smelly. No interest at all!
What do you think about traditional handicrafts?
I really love the superb quality of handmade items
As long as it is practical, I am not fussed whether it is handmade or not
I do not understand why people still waste so much time and energy on such things
Are you interested in local architecture when visiting a city?
Architecture is almost the only reason I travel
I would admire it but I do not particularly understand it
I have no interest in architecture at all
You decide to visit the mountain over a weekend and there are three ways for reaching the summit. Which option would you most likely go for?
The cable car
What used to be your favourite subject at school?
None of the above
Are you familiar with the magnum opus of Vincent van Gogh and Claude Oscar Monet?
Of course I am
I roughly have an idea
I have no interest in these people
If you could choose, where would your ideal place of residence be?
A prosperous metropolis
A small town surrounded by a river and mountains
Isolated at the foot of a snowy mountain, beach or forest
Would you bring your camera with you when travelling?
Of course. What is the point of all the gorgeous views if you cannot capture it
Yes, but mainly to create souvenirs for myself and those who travel with me
I have no interest in taking any pictures
Do you normally drink alcohol?
I cannot imagine my life without alcohol
Sometimes. I tend to enjoy the moment more when I am tipsy
I do not drink at all
A super popular restaurant just opened up in your neighbourhood. What do you do?
I cannot wait to try it!
If one day I have no clue what to eat for dinner, I will try this place out
I could not be bothered
Do you visit the bookstore often?
It's my absolute favourite place. I could stay there forever
Sometimes. I would pop in if I passed by
I would much rather buy books online
Where would you prefer to stay when travelling?
Youth Hostel / Guest house
With the locals
How would you describe your style when it comes to interior design?
Modern and fashionable
Sweet and fresh
Classic and elegant
Simple but not distasteful
Which movie would you prefer?
None of the above
How would you define yourself?
Somewhere in the middle
Where would you most likely be over a weekend?
A night club
A food stall
Would you be interested in meditation?
I meditate regularly
I heard that it could help you fall sleep. I would possibly try it when I have a chance
What on earth is that?
