The ladies over at Jet Setting Divas pointed blog readers in the direction of this travel profile quiz hosted by American Express' Travel site. 

I love things that try to tell me who I am 'cause they're usually super hi-larious. Though I will say I'm quite pleased with these results. I think they fit me to a T.

Apparently I'm a Gastronaut. 

What's that mean? Find out for yourself.
Everybody loves to travel with a Gastronaut. Whether regaling your mates with tales of yesteryear over a pint or just mulling over a snifter of brandy by the fire, you’re always good company. And, with an insatiable appetite for history, you bring more to the dinner party than snappy threads and a bottle of vino. You bring tasty lore and witty repartee.
Uhm, remember how I did nothing but eat and sleep and check out amazing historical stuff while I was in SE Asia? And remember how I went home and ate my face off? Uhm, yeah, I would say I'm probably an amateur foodie at heart. This is totally me. 

I'm the person who is currently attempting to learn to make my Taiwanese favorites like guo tie and tsong you bing and getting ready to embark on a Svíčková adventure. Yup. Guilty of being a gastronaut and so unapologetic.

Head over to http://www.nextpedition.com to find out what kind of traveler you are.  


  1. I think I am definitely a Gastronaut. Love checking out all the local faves any where we travel! I will go check out the quiz, you know, just to be sure :)

  2. I found you through 20SB, and have to say... you've won me over with just this very first post I've read.

    A few months ago I was in Prague for a short time and tried Svíčková... and wow... can I just say it was one of the most tasty things I've had. Between the sweet and salty and savory--just perfect!

    Being an amateur foodie is probably one of the best things about travel. The food around the world is, well... out of this world!

  3. Texa - Of course you are. We Texans totally love our food.

    Hayley - Hooray for a new reader! And you're right, I would make love to Svíčková if I could. So delicious.
