It's official. Travel not only shapes you, it also determines your personality! Where and how you choose to travel says a lot about what kind of a person you are. The mystery behind why you prefer mountains more than beaches or why camping has more sheen for you than a stay at the Venetian, is finally ready to be unraveled.

Find out your personality type based on the following destination choices.

Mountains: The Spiritual Recluse

There is magic in the mountains just like in Pokhara, Nepal. And they call out yearningly to a few. If you are one of them, you are a person who seeks for something beyond the materialistic world around us. You like to be on your own, listen to your thoughts and are a good company to yourself. You are a thinker and long to live in a world where people look beyond the temptations of material chaos.

Beaches: The Jovial John

The beaches are fun. And there is no doubt about that. If you are a beach bum, you are someone who loves people and is often loved by people. You accommodate all kinds of people in your life without judging anyone. You love the outdoors and are a smooth conversationalist. A good balance of wits and humility, beach bums are lovable and fun!

Metropolis: The City Slicker

New York, Tokyo, London. Are these your dream destinations?  If yes, then you are the quintessential city slicker. You find order in chaos and thrive in the hustle bustle of life just as Times Square in NYC. You have a strong identity of your own that stands out because of your confidence. A lover of all good things, for you the city is almost like another living person. Breathing, surviving with you.

Forests: The Jungle Junkie

Most of us would get terrified of the dense forests. But not you. The forest knows you as well as you know it. It is a welcome place to you, the bites and leeches notwithstanding. If you're in love with the jungle, you are probably a Jungle Junkie. You are fascinated by natures creations and believe that all answers can be got from the study of nature. You find solace in animals and plants rather than human beings and often find yourself talking to them. You don't like to hoard stuff and live off a few essentials.

The Countryside: The Humble Harry

Life would be so much better if only it could get a bit simpler, right? If youd choose a ranch rather than a plush boutique hotel, you could be the Humble Harry. You don't take yourself too seriously and don't harbor a big ego. You love to take it slow and are a fan of rustic home cooking and barbecues. You love to get your hands dirty in the soil and are a farmer at heart. You like to know everyone around you on first name basis and are one of the rare people today who take friendship seriously.

The human mind is fluid. You could be the Jovial John in one holiday and the Humble Harry for another. But the destination that really calls out to you is ideal for your inherent personality. I am the Spiritual Recluse. What about you?
