My Dream Vacation: What’s Yours?

My Dream Vacation: What's Yours?

When you think about the perfect vacation what comes to mind? For me, it’s something relaxing and soothing where I can just chill and let loose. I have yet to experience this vacation, but it’s on my bucket list of things to do!

I was curious to see where I would fit in on American Express Travel’s Nextpedition Travel Profiler Quiz and my results came on par with what I thought they would. I know what I like and don’t like and the Travel Profile for me was spot on. I’m a Zenturian.

So what does being a Zenturian say about my travel preferences? Well, for starters it says I like peace and order and fits right in there with the ultimate goal of  my perfect vacation- relaxation. I prefer natural over man made so the spot would have to be somewhere with beautiful scenery that is exclusive so it’s not too crowded. I can’t relax when there’s too many people around.

My trip would be jetsetting to the best spa resorts  in Europe (because I’ve always wanted to go there). I can just picture it now spending a few days in each spa resort taking in the healthy fare, experiencing the beautiful scenery and being pampered. My first stop would be  a resort in one of the most breathtaking parts of Germany- Hochsauerland- where I will spend two amazing days. I’ll get a full-body peel with sea-salt, Ayurveda back massage with warm oil and soak in a outdoor jacuzzi filled with Sauerland meadow herbs and catch up on reading and just taking in everything.

My next stop will a few days spent in Austria with its snowcapped mountains and crystal blue lakes. Think deluxe facials and chocolate body wraps and a visit to the lake to sit and meditate. Ahhh I can just picture it now!

Last but not least, I would finish my dream vacation off with a visit to the one of the prettiest regions in Italy- Tuscany. I’ll spend three days exploring the amazing Tuscan countryside and sampling the local fare, getting Mediterranean massages and chilling in Dead Sea salt baths.

I’ll come home feeling like a million bucks and feeling so much better both mentally and physically. From this Zenturian’s point of view, this would be the best vacation ever!
