About This Quiz

There's a mindful saying that goes, "Everywhere you go, there you are." While our soul is truly at home in any location, certain places just feel a little more comfortable and a bit more cozy for our deepest self. It's as if we were always meant to find that culture and to immerse ourselves in that setting.

The more you travel, the more you gain an appreciation for the massive and subtle differences that exist between destinations. You also become aware that your travel companions may have radically different experiences of the places you visit. We are all drawn towards the kind of energy that somehow just feels right to us, and the details of what that looks like will vary significantly from one person to another.

Maybe you're the kind of person who is meticulous in all that you do. If you consider yourself to be a zen artist who is focused on cultivating inner peace while you work creatively on the aesthetics of your environment, there's a country in Asia that we're leaning towards for you.

Perhaps you're more of an independent spirit who likes to go their own way. If you are a bit of a pioneer who is also very polite, warm and friendly to strangers that you meet, there's a North American country that seems to be calling your name.

Pack your bags. We're heading to that place where your soul will feel right at home.
