Recently I was thinking about my lack of trips on the horizon, and I realized hey, I don’t have to travel internationally when I can travel internetally.
Just like international tourism, internetal tourism involves going to sites and looking at things. However, internetal tourists don’t have to put on pants.
Wondering which type of tourist you are? Let’s find out.
A. When it comes to pulling out your phone, do you prefer to do it:
- During dinner to show your friends pictures of your recent trip to Hong Kong
- During disputes to show your friends that according to Google, their side is wrong
B. When it comes to complaining about your connections, which of the following words typically precedes “connections”:
C. When it comes to regaling your friends with exotic stories, do you normally talk about:
- Your last visit to the Sub-Saharan Desert
- Your last visit to that super weird subreddit
D. When you pick up new phrases, these are usually in the form of:
- Foreign languages
E. When you say “I’ll write” you mean:
- A postcard containing just one sentence, something like: “Wish you were here.”
- An email containing no text just a Buzzfeed link, with the subject: “Aww baby pig friends with baby deer”
F. When you worry about your financial safety, your biggest threat is:
- Your cash being stolen by child pickpockets with small hands
- All your personal information stolen by teenage hackers over wireless LANs
G. When you say you’re going on Safari, you mean:
- In Africa, with all the animals and khaki clothes
- On your iphone or computer (because you need to open a browser other than Chrome)
If you answered mostly 1s, you are an international tourist.
If you answered mostly 2s, you are an internetal tourist and you are just like me.
What sites do you spend most of your time on– ancient, archaeological, or web? (Web. Blogs and Buzzfeed)
Do you have any trips coming up? Where are you going? (Trader Joes. Yes it counts.)
Did you just get back from a trip? Where did you go? (Ego trip, briefly. Yes it counts.)
