Couples Travel Quiz Tag

Run Disney 5k, Disneyland, USA

I so enjoyed reading Marcella from What A Wonderful World Couple’s Travel Quiz Tag. It reminded me of this programme I used to watch when I was a kid, called Mr and Mrs. Each partner was asked a set of questions and then their spouse would be asked the same questions and had to try and guess their partner’s answers, often with hilarious results.

This quiz devised by Sarah from Endless Distances is like the modern day, online, travel version and David and I had such fun answering these questions (and going through our photo archives.)

So how do you think we did? I’m calling it a draw! Now we’ve told you our answers, why not tell us yours?!

Do you prefer travelling solo or with another? Who’s your favourite travel buddy and how well do you know them? Will you have a crack at the quiz?

  • This is SO fun! Kel and I haven’t actually done much travelling together. It’s 100% something we want to do more of.

    • It’s hilarious! We tried it on our friends at the weekend and had such a laugh! Travelling together is so much fun – it’s also relationship building, I think if you can travel together, you can survive anything together 🙂

      • It’s really something we need to do more often! I might use this tag as a way to get some excitement about such things. Haha.

  • Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Haha that was super fun, especially as I know the both of you. I could use a David when it comes to packing but how does he know which clothes you want to wear?

    • LOL! He’s not clever enough to guess my outfits although it would be nice if he was! I dump all my clothes and stuff on the bed and he magically fits it all into my case or if I’m lucky and we’re travelling together my case and his case, because one case is never enough! You’ll have to try this on Mr NQN and report back, it’s so fun!

  • Lorelle Catalano

    What a great quiz Sammie. Loads of fun and great to compare answers at the end! Xx #WanderfulWednesday

  • Ahhh yay I’m so glad you did the travel quiz tag!! I’m so happy that you and Marcella gave it a shot, from its humble beginnings as Dan and I struggled in the heatwave of Budapest trying to entertain ourselves in a spot of shade haha. I love that you have an “icecream and donuts” reputation… that is probably the best reputation to have ;P Let me know whenever you come across gluten free donuts on your travels, they are my FAVORITE!!!

    • I will make finding good gluten free donuts my new mission! We had such fun with this and we’ve been trying it on different sets of friends ever since! It’s just hilarious!

  • merilyn

    you two!!! … the adorables!
    here’s to you both!
    much love m:)X

  • Such a fun read!! I love that you guys are so in synch when you travel! 🙂

    • You must try it! It’s such fun! David is so competitive and he aced it. He’s really proud of himself! LOL!

  • This was great! I laughed the whole way though (except at the part about David not sharing his food, that would kill me). I think I’m going to try this one with Mike.

    • In his defence, he is getting better at sharing his food, just not as much as I’d like! You must try it on Mike, if you don’t make it a blog post, please report back! We’ve been trying it out on our friends too and it’s so funny!

  • This is such a fun little quiz! I definitely prefer travelling with Jesse. We are the perfect travel buddies!

    • Even if you don’t want to do this quiz on the blog, try out the spoken version! It’s so much fun! We’ve been trying it out on all our friends this week and we’ve all been rolling around laughing!

  • I love posts like this 🙂 You seem like very well matched travel partners! I’m not great at packing either but I’m too much of a control freak to let anyone else pack for me, either. If I let S pack for me I’d end up with 2 t shirts and one pair of shorts for a week long trip. Sigh.

    • I guess we are pretty well matched. You two will have to try this out – it’s so fun! I should add, that I lay out all my stuff, David just packs it professionally in the case. I would never let him choose my outfits, perish the thought!
