Well, the way you choose to spend the downtime says a lot about what type of traveller you are.
If you’re the kind of person that thinks ‘bungee jumping or shark cave diving’ when you’re about to book a flight from Johannesburg to Port Elizabeth then you probably fall into this category. Adventure travellers often like to travel in small groups of kindred spirits who will share the thrill, excitement and adrenaline rush – whether it’s scuba diving, hiking or paragliding on the cards!
History is what drives you. You seek to gain a deeper understanding of heritage, cultures, traditions and ancestors. You try and travel often, stay in, or near, hotels with historical significance and plan your excursions in advance. If you are considering a flight to Johannesburg, a Soweto tour and a visit to the Apartheid Museum should be on the cards. And if you’re booking that flight to Cape Town a tour to Robben Island and the winelands should feature on your ‘to do’ list.
If it’s not planned, it’s a problem. After all, planning makes perfect, right? Things, like having a set budget and packing essential items based on the weather, are important to you. You prefer to know exactly where you’re going and what you’re going to do once there. So, if you’re booking your flight from Durban to East London chances are that you already know exactly which excursions you’ll go on and what areas you’ll be exploring.
You mostly travel for personal or spiritual development. You often enjoy visiting shrines and holy places in a city like Cape Town or would fly to Johannesburg to explore something like the Buddhist Temple at Bronkhorstspruit, to inhale the peace and quiet that these places invariably offer.
The nature lover
You love beautiful scenery and choose destinations where you’ll be able to convene with Mother Nature. Places like Namaqualand or the Garden Route are favourite desinations. You may also dream about that flight from Cape Town to Hoedspruit to be at one with nature in the magnificence of the Kruger National Park.
It’s pretty difficult for you to step out of your comfort zone. You prefer to stay near home and would rather take a flight from Durban to Port Elizabeth instead of a flight to Lubumbashi. You prefer to travel with family or close friends and probably leave most of the planning to them!
