Find out your Travel Personality
What is a Zimmer? A traveller who plans well, knows where they’re going and how to stay in touch when they get there. Zimmers can visit any place and have a great time. They’re the ultimate traveller. But have you ever thought about what kind of traveller you are? Like people, travellers have different styles too. In this piece, we’ll discuss four traveller types: the “Holi,” the “Explorer,” the “IGer,” and the “Adventurer.” Each type has its own way of travelling and seeing the world. No matter your travel style, there’s no right or wrong way. It’s all about what makes you happy and fulfilled. So, what kind of traveller are you?
A Holi traveller loves being part of the culture they visit. They enjoy new foods, local festivals, and learning about their destination’s history and customs.
Marrakech, Morroco, is the perfect place for Holi travellers. It has a rich mix of history, architecture, and tasty food.
Holi travellers need to see the Koutoubia Mosque, a symbol of Marrakech’s past. This tall 12th-century mosque stands over 70 meters tall. It was built during the Almohad dynasty and is a great example of Moroccan architecture.
Moroccan food is full of flavours and spices. Holi travellers should try the tagine, a famous slow-cooked stew. It can have chicken, lamb, beef, or veggies and is spiced with cumin, cinnamon, and saffron.
Holi travellers will also enjoy Morocco’s music and dance. The best place for this is Jemaa el Fnaa, the city’s main square, where fun street performers entertain people.
Holi travellers need data to research the traditions and local customs of the place they’re visiting. Their eSIM plan is their gateway to experiencing new cultures to the fullest.
Holi travellers would need 2.5GB – 4GB (per week) eSIM plans on their trips.

Explorers are always on the hunt for new and exciting experiences. They enjoy going off the standard path and finding hidden treasures, like a scenic hike or a small, unknown museum.
Reykjavik, Iceland, is surrounded by stunning landscapes, natural wonders, hidden thermal pools, waterfalls, and hiking trails—an Explorer’s paradise.
The Blue Lagoon is world famous, but an explorer would look for the lesser-known hot springs and veer away from all the tourists. Reykjadalur, a geothermal valley not far from Reykjavik, has a peaceful and secluded spot to relax in a natural hot river.
Iceland is home to many unique geological formations, including lava tubes. These underground tunnels are formed by molten lava flowing beneath the earth’s surface. Explorers can book a tour of the Raufarhólshellir lava tube, just a short drive from Reykjavik.
Iceland’s ice caves are an Explorer’s dream. The glaciers give travellers a chance to explore a unique terrain of ice caves and frozen tunnels. Whether you’re an experienced Explorer or new to it all, exploring an ice cave in Iceland is a thrilling and unforgettable experience.

IGers are constantly taking pictures and sharing their trips with their social media followers. They may even visit famous landmarks just so they can get the perfect shot.
The famous and charming Paris is visited by millions of tourists every year. It’s an iconic city known for its architecture, art and style. It has many picture-worthy spots ideal for an IGer.
First and most obvious, IGers should stop by the Eiffel Tower. A selfie or a full shot of the structure makes for a great Instagram post. An IGer doesn’t go to Paris without getting a photo at the tower.
Next, an IGer would enjoy the colourful Montmartre area, home to the famous Sacré-Coeur Basilica. The site has narrow streets with cute shops and cafes, perfect for more artsy photos. IGers love to show off their eye for style.
Then there’s the Palace of Versailles. The palace’s architecture and beautiful gardens make excellent photo backdrops. A few tips for IGers; find the Hall of Mirrors or the fountains for some fantastic shots that will leave their followers in awe.
It’s no surprise that compared to other travel personalities, the IGer needs a lot of data with their eSIM plan. Their travel plans are centred around creating content to share online with their followers, and they need the most data for that.
7GB – 10GB (per week) eSIM plans suit an IGer.

Were you the friend that was always ready to do the dare everyone else was scared of? You ever try bungee jumping, skydiving, or rafting and enjoyed it? You might be an Adventurer. They love an adrenaline rush.
Queenstown, New Zealand, is the “adventure capital of the world.” Adventurers will find several activities there that are sure to get their hearts racing.
Adventurers should look up the Nevis Bungy. Located in a remote canyon, it’s 134-metre-high and delivers a thrilling jump and breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape.
There’s the Shotover Jet boat ride which is an exhilarating experience. It’s a boat ride through the narrow Shotover Canyon with 360-degree spins and tight turns. It’s a typical Adventurer-type activity. Hold on tight and prepare to get soaked.
The Skyline Queenstown Gondola and Luge is another thrilling activity. It starts with a scenic lift to the top of a mountain, followed by a descent down on a gravity-powered go-kart. Adventurers can marvel at the beautiful views while winding down an exciting track. The luge ride is sure to satisfy any Adventurer’s need for speed.
Explorers and Adventurers aren’t on their phones much during their travels. They still need to stay connected, but they’re more focused on discovering hidden gems and daring activities.
850MB – 1.5GB (per week) eSIM plans would be enough if you’re an Adventurer or Explorer.

Ultimately, whether you’re a Holi traveller, Explorer, IGer, Adventurer, or a combination of these personalities, you’re a Zimmer. The world is yours to explore and enjoy in your own special way.
