1. Backpacking trip.
I've done a few. I now prefer to carry a small daypack, and a wheeled carry-on. As far as couch surfing... today, I dont like sleeping on the ground or floor. I still do it some, but, I've become less interested.

2. Solo trip.
I've solo traveled lots in Mexico. It has its pros and cons. I am considering a solo cruise, as I want to see Iceland.

3. Luxury trip.
Haven't done this. But, I'm retired, and am thinking "I can't take it with me". LOL

4. Romantic trip.
This has been fun a few times.

5. Road trip.
Yep. Many times. I prefer to drive NO MORE than 6 hours per day. I like to do spur-of-the-moment side trips while traveling. I like to stop and walk around every hour or so. I use "bathroom break" as an excuse, when traveling with others.

6. Cruise trip.
One time, on Carnival. I enjoyed it immensely. I especially enjoyed the RELAXTION of the experience. And, it was relatively inexpensive.

7. Off the grid trip.
Ive done Big Bend (TX), some trips in Mexico, the Grand Canyon. Wilderness backpacking is for young folks. Or, for folks with good knees, hips, flexibility, balance, etc.
Hmm... maybe I should do another?

8. Last minute trip.
I've done some. These were short trips and FUN! But, my personality favors doing random stuff, side trips, etc, just for the possibility of an "adventure".

9. A trip that scares you.
Whatever takes you out of your comfort zone - we say, go for it! Pushing yourself out of your comfort zone is the most simple way to expand your horizons and broaden your perspective. And honestly, isn’t that why we love to travel in the first place?
I think that when I solo travel, I'm always pushing my comfort zone.
