New Quiz: What’s Your Heaven on Earth?

What vacation would bring you bliss?

I believe that travel should be as blissful of an experience as possible. Otherwise, what’s the point of all the hassle – the travel time, the money spent, the uncomfortable conditions? When I travel, I try to not just travel for travel’s sake. Instead, I try to anticipate what I will really enjoy. A mediocre trip can put me off wandering the world, and I definitely don’t want that!

Of course, what makes a trip fabulous for all of us differs. And I’ve even found for me that it changes depending on what I need in my life. Right now, I’m in a low key, off the beaten path kind of mood. I’d love to stay at a small family farm or cabin. I’ve probably been listening to too many sounds of the city! Other times, all I’ve wanted is culture, city lights, and a fast pace of life. I think those have been the times in my life where I was feeling a bit under-stimulated and bored.

I suppose I think that the ideal vacation gets us away from the things we have too much of and gets us to more of the things we crave. It’s a pretty basic idea, but I think it’s one that is difficult to implement. How many of you have repeated a trip you once enjoyed years later only to find it dull and a disappointment? I know I have.

Our concept of an ideal trip or as I put it “heaven on earth” may be hard to grasp at times, so I thought it would be fun to write a quiz about it:Β What’s Your Heaven on Earth?Β This quiz will hopefully tell you what your ideal getaway is… at least for right now.

    Your Heaven on Earth is a Classic City

    You love big city glamour and the best that cities have to offer – culture, dining, people watching…
    You may even already live in one of the classic cities, but that doesn’t stop you from wanting to visit them all.

    When you travel, you like to try someone else’s life on for size. You like to imagine what it’s like to live in a great place.
    You may not be able to live like a VIP all the time, but it can be fun for a few days. You love to splurge a little.

    For your next vacation, try any of the great world cities you haven’t been to lately – or at all.
    London, New York, and Paris are right up your alley. You’d also love Rome, Rio, Tokyo, Sydney, and Shanghai!

    For a laid-back chica like me, I love the stimulating business of the city!!

    I would dream about staying in a nice high-end palace like a mansion up the hill with pools, a gym and an office.

    My Heaven on Earth is a “Grand Adventure” and this is true for me. If I could go on a vacation for a couple of weeks I would love to go snorkeling in Greece. The best vacation I ever took was my honeymoon @ a small resort, at night we went to plays and comedy shows, while drinking exotic concoctions. We also had the swimming pool to ourselves, so much fun. There were train rides, hayrides and antiquing. We were supposed to stay a week, but ended up calling our jobs to stay 2 weeks because we were having so much fun. We tried to go back to the resort 10yrs later, but alas, it had been bought out by a Holiday Inn, all the charm was gone.

    My Heaven on Earth is off the beaten path. It is rather true for me. While I have never tried it in reality, my heart longs to be somewhere so far off the corner of the earth, to experience a living that is totally new, to learn and gain some wisdom…

    My dream vacation, though, will be in Greece or Italy. I want to see for myself the places I have read and heard so much, places that had played important part in shaping human history…

    The best vacation I have ever took was a vacation to Bali I took with my family around 7 years ago. It was the best vacation not only because I get to spend it with people that mattered to me the most, but because it was also a vacation where I get to learn so much about an amazing culture…

    Thank you for this quiz, Kari. I really enjoyed taking it….
