How do you see the world?

July 10, 2018

This month, we're asking you how you see the world — and giving you a chance to win a trip for two from National Geographic Journeys with G Adventures. Think you have an idea of how you'd like to see the world? Check out our suggestions below — then take our quiz to discover more destinations that align with your travel style!

If you see yourself: Tasting your way through your next destination

Then you'll love: Morocco

Morocco's cuisine is, much like its scenery, bright, vibrant, and without a dull moment (or, in the case of food, a dull bite). Intensely spiced tagines glistening with dried fruit; crisp mint teas and fluffy couscous piled high with fragrant stewed meats and vegetables; and preserved lemons, marinated olives, and fresh sardines are just some of the flavours you can expect to encounter here.

If you see yourself: Spotting amazing local wildlife, up close

Then you'll love: Borneo

Borneo, in Southeast Asia, is one of the world's most biodiverse regions. From bats and frogs to Bornean Sun Bears and orangutans, there is no shortage of opportunities to encounter animals in the wild (from a safe and respectful distance and occasionally at conservation centres). A visit to Borneo will surely leave you with a sense of awe and appreciation for Earth’s magnificent wildlife.

If you see yourself: Immersing yourself in local lore

Then you'll love: Jordan

There is evidence of human activity in Jordan from more than 200,000 years ago — so you know this Middle Eastern country has a rich, storied, diverse history. Learn from locals as you tour iconic sites like Petra, and dig into fantastic food while hearing stories about Jordan's fascinating and ancient past.

If you see yourself: Exploring off the beaten path

Then you'll love: Myanmar

You might feel like you're discovering new frontiers and blazing new trails in Myanmar. From stunning monasteries to bustling markets, Myanmar is a place like no other.

If you see yourself: On two wheels

Then you'll love: Burgundy

Sure, getting active isn't the first thing you might think of when you picture France's scenic Burgundy region (you probably think of wine or cheese), but there are few better areas to go for a bike ride. Not only will your ride be beautiful, but it will be well-rewarded at the finish line with some of the best food in Europe.

If you see yourself: Dancing in a parade

Then you'll love: Mexico

Specifically, Mexico during Día de los Muertos, otherwise known as the Day of the Dead. The annual festival is rooted in tradition and observances, and if you have a taste for the theatric (and the spectacular), you'll appreciate the bright colours, meaningful rituals, and cultural significance of the celebration.

Still not sure how you see the world? Take our quiz to find out — and you might win a trip for two with National Geographic Journeys with G Adventures.
