Summer is fast approaching and we’ve got some great news to help you plan your exciting holiday ideas.
Expedia has launched the largest summer sale in the company’s history and to help you choose between the 12,000 participating hotels worldwide, they’ve developed two tools to help you out; Geotargeted hotel deals and the Blogger Bucket List App.
Dave and I are excited to tell you about the Travel Blogger Bucket List as we are one of the Adventure Travel contributors.
As a way to help travelers book the perfect summer trip, Expedia has partnered with some of the world’s most influential travel bloggers and we are thrilled to be a part of it. To participate, consumers can download the Blogger Bucket List App via Expedia’s Facebook page to take a quiz to determine your Beach Travel profile.
What type of beachgoer are you?
This fun and interactive quiz will determine if you are an Adventure lovin’ adrenaline seeking beachgoer, an international foodie expert, a good old fashioned beach bum or a History and Culture Buff. There are all sorts of travel types out there, find out where you belong!
Fifteen influential bloggers have selected destinations that correspond with each of the Beach Travel profiles. So a traveler whose profile is “Foodie” would be presented with blogger recommendations to visit cities such as Tokyo, or Bangkok, or New York City. “Adventure” travelers would see blogger recommendations to visit Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, to hunt with eagles, or Reykjavic, Iceland, to experience dog sledding. “Party” people will be encouraged to enjoy Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, or Ibiza, Spain, among numerous other destinations. “Exotic” travelers would be advised to visit Pohnpei, Micronesia, or the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador. Travelers who fit each profile will be presented with a broad number of prospective travel destinations. And travelers can retake the quiz at will, to examine travel recommendations for any of the categories such as.
We tried the app and found out that we’re a Rowin’ Paddlin’ Singaporean Dude. Just like Johnny Jett!
