Drum roll please. Your ‘holidayer’ options are:
Not quite sure what type of ‘holidayer’ you are?
We’ve provided a handy quiz that should help narrow down the options for you (and add a bit of Friday fun!).
Confession: I got mostly b’s, which means that I discovered I am ‘The Nostalgic Ned’.
As The Nostalgic Ned:
“It’s been months, or even years, since your last family reunion, where Uncle Bob was belting out some golden oldies and Aunty Patsy was dancing on the table. You’ve been yearning for another good old knees-up and there’s no time like the present. Get the gang together and make some more memories for the family album”.
I initially thought that I must have completed the quiz wrong. Of course I’m close to my family! I live with them, and some of the extended family is only a 1 hour plane ride way.
As someone who considers holidays to be ‘me-time’ (long breaks overseas, shorter weekend breaks with friends), it was strange to think of a family-reunion style holiday, rather than the usual weekend hangouts and dinners – until I had a good ponder about it.
The quiz was right. It had been ages since the close family and I had simply relaxed together, without the intrusion of everyday stress. As for the extended clan, websites and apps like Facebook are growing in popularity as a way to keep updated with family (both near and far), but they certainly cannot replace those special connections only gained from spending time together. Sure you know that your niece just won the long-jump championships, but when was the last time you just had a good giggle together?
So it looks like I’m due for a holiday with all the family (and I couldn’t be happier about it!).
Back to you. Curious to discover what sort of ‘holidayer’ you are? Why you deserve a break? Complete the quiz & find out!
(Then book yourself that break using your promo code :)).
