Plenty of travel guides can give you destination information, but only the Bakpak Europe GO Kit will help you to understand your personal travel style and preferences through a fun collection of discovery quizzes. Are you a fast or slow traveler? Should you plan on a big or small budget? Do you travel to experience culture, natural beauty or excitement? Will you like London or Rome better?
