    Default Where do you like to go on vacation?

    What are some of your favorite vacation spots? My (suspected INTP) boyfriend and I have our first chance to take a summer vacation, and I'm trying to come up with ideas.

    I love taking trips and exploring, but he can be a bit of a homebody and would prefer spending vacation time on the computer. He's the first person I've met who actually expressed a dislike of traveling, which surprised me. I want him to have a really fun introduction to vacationing with me, so he'll be more open to it in the future.

    Is he an outdoorsy type or more of an urban rat?

    I'm guessing there's a preference for the former, so why not go some place with a lot of INTP-ish activities. That is, museums, bookstores, camera/tech stores, beer bars, etc.

    In other words a big city like New York or San Francisco. Or even better, Portland, OR.

    If you have a passport, Vancouver is fun.

    I don't think he's very outdoorsy. He doesn't see the fun in camping and hates sand, so beaches are out of the question.

    Good suggestions! I've never been to California, so San Francisco might be cool.

    Seconded. Best sushi in North America.

    And the first place I ever saw a Starbucks across the street from a Starbucks.

    San Fran is great. Is he a beer geek (a lot of INTPs are). You've got the Anchor brewery there, and a great beer bar in the Haight called 'Toronado'. And there's SFMOMA for shared ISFP/INTP art appreciation, and all that great food, too. Seems like a safe bet.

    Funny how much latitude there is in MBTI types. I love the outdoors and can't get enough of camping and hiking. But I'm also a big city person, too.

    Being an INTP that does not like the outdoors, but who does like to observe, one of my favourite cities is Florence. Italy in general. But it is rather busy when I am too I'ish. Then Norway is the perfect alternative.

    The Rockies.... Italy.. South of France. Northern Sweden... Ireland is fun. Go on a long North American road trip! The possibilities are endless.
