Rookie Roamer

You're a Rookie Roamer! Any day spent in the great outdoors is an adventure in your eyes, and you're happy to travel far and wide for a good day out. You love the open road, or rail, or sea for that matter - and you take the scenic route whenever you're able. You're always up for a challenge, whether it's scaling new heights, covering long distances or trying something new, but you like to take things at your own pace - all the more time to soak up the sights. In the evenings, you enjoy meeting up with friends to listen to good music and reminisce, swapping tales of past experiences and planning future expeditions.
