A mix. I would like to visit historical places, meet people, learn their language, music and culture. I'm not a food enthusiast. I'm always a bit hesitant when it comes to trying new foods

I definitely feel like I would be a mix of all these types, and it also depends on the destination I am at. If I was in the Caribbean, I would want to do pretty much everything. I'd want to eat the food, and go on hikes and adventures. If I was in Europe, I would probably want to go to the museums and again try the food. I feel like I would definitely try to do a little bit of everything.

I am definitely a mix. I love trying local cuisine and finding all the non-touristy restaurants. But I am a sucker for museums...I always try to hit whatever museums or art galleries are in the area.

Wow, such a good question! it really depends on where I am going, how long I get to be there, and how much cost is an issue. My idea of the perfect/dream travel scenario would be to spend a year biking through all the countries in Europe, reading books, drinking coffee, and eating all the yummy food and wine!

I am more of a museum type of person, always inspired by the great history of our ancestors and the level of coolness they had, how peaceful their lives were without all the technology

I have a built-in instinct for exploration and travel so i think for me a blended approach would work well. Food tourist can have the taste of them all as he can observe nature and environment while having delicious food around the corner and can also integrate archaelogical aspect very well
