About This Quiz
Have you ever gone on vacation and just fallen in love with wherever it was you went? Maybe it was the culture, the food, the people or just the whole environment. It was such a change from where you came from that it seemed like you found paradise. That happens more often than you'd think. And for real, some places on Earth really do seem like paradise, especially when you compare them to places where you've maybe grown restless or had some bad experiences. The fact is we often become enamored with new and exotic things just because they're so new and unique. We want to experience them all the time, even if that means running away from what we know and immersing ourselves fully in that new and wonderful thing.
Whatever the reason that might be motivating you, love of something new or dislike of something old, there's always a chance you just want to take off and disappear to a land far away. There's nothing wrong with that feeling, though you should probably make sure it's cool before you act on that feeling. But regardless of how it goes down if you want to disappear, we bet we can guess where you'd like to do it. Just take the quiz and see!

It' a struggle, but I manage.

Rain or shine, there's always something to do.
Nah, it's all part of the experience.
Are you the kind of tourist who hits up museums in other countries?
I'm not a big museum person.
I can't get enough of museums!
Definitely, there's always at least one on my list.
I'm not against a museum, but I doubt I'd go out of my way.

Beaches are nice, but not my main interest.
A beach is integral to a good vacation.
If you were going to disappear closer to home, what city would you choose?
