12-21 You didn’t inherit a very strong adventuress gene. You’ll get your kicks from watching “Lost” and “The Amazing Race,” thank you very much. Let those younger people take silly risks. Your idea of roughing it is a single at the Hilton, though that’s not necessarily a bad idea if it’s combined with a great shopping trip in San Francisco or Paris.
22-31 You like the comforts of home, and prefer to take them with you when you travel. Cruises and guided tours, where everything is conveniently pre-arranged, are your cup of tea. Still, you’ll be the one bugging the tour guide for extra information, and will most likely stay in touch with some of your new traveling companions.
32-41 You prefer extended travel—more than two weeks—and love meeting foreign people and learning about their cultures. You’re not opposed to guided tours. But during the free time you’ll most likely find something more interesting to do than stay in your hotel and wash your hair.
41-48 You’re open to the moment. You inherited all the adventure genes of both your parents. You’re the supreme adventuress, up for anything, without question. You love traveling to out-of-the-way places, though this has, on occasion, caused you a little trouble. Your friends are constantly amazed at the experiences you’ve had. They can’t wait to see what you’ll be up to next.
