What kind of tourist are you?



We got our visas approved for our overseas tour to America in June! *Happy dance!*

I stressed about all the paperwork, and we went in with four complete files proving that we have work here, with bank statements, letters from my brother, from work and from school. And more...

They did not ask for one single thing. They only wanted to know where we are going, what our occupations are (of course she wanted to know what an "archivist" is), and how we are going to pay for it.
Luckily we could say that we are going to stay with my brother.

It is a relief to finally being able to focus on planning the touristy things!

I am Googling all the free things (with kids) we can do, because our ZAR is worth nothing when converted!
Any suggestions about San Antonio in Texas?

That's why I immediately completed a questionnaire from Flight Centre in my Inbox today: "What kind of tourer are you? 
[Unfortunately it is not available on the web, but if you send me your email, I will be happy to forward it to you.]

I got the following result:
"You are a Youth Tourer!
This is for the young and the young at heart! Party like a rock star in the Greek Islands, leave what happens in Vegas in Vegas, or explore the exotic beaches of South East Asia. You make every minute of your holiday count with the coolest sights, activities and places to go specially selected so that you get all the best parts of each country you visit. You believe life is about making memories, visiting inspiring places and living in the moment."

You can also go and do the following quiz from The Science Channel: What kind of tourist are you? 

This quiz got the following result:
"34 - 66 Proceed with CautionColumbus you're not, but you definitely like to get away from time to time. You appreciate the comforts of home even when you're on the road. Not that we're saying there's anything wrong with that."


Please share what kind of Tourer (not an actual word for tourist?) are you?

Disclaimer: I am very excited about finally going on an overseas tour. (You will probably see some more touristy things here.)
I was not paid to mention Flight Centre.

  2. My brother also lives in the USA and we have been lucky enough to visit him twice in the last 4 years. You will find lots of cheap things in the US. Food is generally cheaper and clothes are much cheaper. Go to the Factory Outlets and you can buy lots of big brand clothes for Ackerman's prices. Let me know if you would like a few tips on travel in the US with a child.

  4. My results were:
    "You are a Coach Tourer!

    Your ideal holiday is seeing all the famous sights and sounds this world has to offer and not having to navigate foreign roads or public transport. Guided by local experts you always get the most out of your holiday, whether you go sightseeing through Paris at night or take a gondola through the watery canals of Venice. The hardest part about coach touring is deciding where to go."

    Can not wait for our trip to San Antonio!

  6. Yes, go to Christian Family Church (that's my church) - our founding pastors now pastor a church there!

    I like one day of sightseeing and doing things, and one day relaxing and taking it more easy, and so on. And at least 2 - 3 hours, just me and my camera exploring :)
