Have you ever felt the urge of going away? Did you ever think that people who are looking for a stable and predictable life were strange? If that is the case, the odds are that you have been bitten by the travel bug. You love to jump in the unknown and explore the world. Samuel Jackson describes traveling as a means “to regulate imagination by reality, and instead of thinking how things may be, to see them as they are.” Let’s see if you are a born traveler.

You don’t drive the nicest car out there, you don’t wear name brands and luxury is not your thing. Instead, you’d rather spend all your money on a trip to Machu Picchu or and learn how to tango in Buenos Aires. Experiences are always better than material possessions in your opinion.
