Have you ever thought of with whom you are travelling? Obviously I know you do not travel with a spirit but with a person. The question is have you ever wondered whether that person really sits well with you when you are on a holiday OR are you able to adjust with your fellow travel mate? Like-minded people/groups are very rare to find. Often we run into some misunderstanding when we are travelling in a group… even if it is our friends or family. The reason is very simple… OUR NATURE VARIES.
Our zodiac (even though some may ignore this part in real) often guide us what kind of traveller we are and whom we can accompany. Our nature that is ruled by the celestial bodies somehow leads us to travel those places where we actually want to go. So in this article, after a wide research and survey, I have tried to bring out “what does your sun sign/zodiac says about your nature of travel”.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Endowed with the ability to overcome all obstacles that comes their way, the Aries are the most active travellers. Leading the pack, the Aries often prefer to travel solo and seek to explore the least travelled places. They are born dynamic with a sign of sure – footed goat and hence adventure activities like mountaineering, rock climbing, river rafting, trekking and biking are like fiesta. If you are travelling with an Aries then make sure that you are not lost in the mid of the journey… the Aries will never waste their time as they will find the fastest mode to reach their goals. They are the most courageous and independent travellers you will come across. Hence the choice is yours!!! Make up your mind when you are travelling with an Aries. Get set for something unusual and exotic to happen and follow their footsteps blindly. Well, here it’s not gonna favour you as the Aries are not going to adjust with you while travelling. On the other hand, the Aries traveller will prefer a wild natural exposure rather than ideally spending days at the shore. They hardly travel with their family and look for a passionate group. Since their energy level is very high they would naturally prefer off beat places in India like the Ladakh region, Garhwal Himalayan region, Lahaul-Spiti in Himachal Pradesh, vast ecosphere of Sikkim, Arunachal Pradesh and Meghalaya. If seeking for foreign locations then the Swiss Alps, Colorado and Rockies are in their mind.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Having the burst of bull… don’t think that they are the laziest people around as you will often find them restless. But at the same time they are imagining something. Yup!!! The Taurus travellers like to build their own castles in the air even when they are travelling. Thoughtful and hence they are good planner… so blindly you can rely on them even if you travel to some unexplored destinations. Remember that the Taurus traveller has done a good amount of research and you will be surprised to see some unexpected sights on the way. Although they are stubborn, but their patient nature leads their way… making them practical to the real world. In contrast they are also creative in nature. So you may notice that either they are playing with words… writing poems dedicating the diversified nature, painting OR arranging something unique – say a dinner in the mid of the ocean. They are determined where they want to go and are also independent. The Taurus traveller will often try to seek the taste of the rarest wines and shop for some unique items that reflect the cultural essence of that particular place. In other terms, a Taurus traveller will prefer a natural world as they are inborn sensuous. So if you give them the choice of picking one from the 7 wonders of the world… they will go for Macchu Picchu in Peru. On the other hand, a Taurus traveller looking for leisure will go for some popular foreign locations like Paris, Rome, Giza and Sydney and if adventure… they will prefer places like the Jungfrau region in Switzerland, Amazon in Brazil and Lake Baikal in Siberia. Amongst the Indian destinations they will often go for a leisure holiday in Andaman OR Goa and for an adventure vacation they will travel to Auli in the Garhwal Himalayan region, Nubra Valley in Jammu and Kashmir and Green Lake in Sikkim.
You share your sun sign with: Dawyne Johnson, Robert Pattinson, David Beckham, Sachin Tendulkar, William Shakespeare, Kane, George Clooney, Jessica Alba, Kelly Clarkson, Megan Fox, Madhuri Dixit and Jannet Jackson.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
The Gemini is gregarious in nature and so likes to travel with their friends and family. They are the most adaptable persons you will come across but usually they pay heed on travelling to the hustle and bustle of the city. If you are with a Gemini, then get accustomed to the local customs of that particular place where you are travelling. So, places having a rich culture attract the traveller in a Gemini. You may end up wearing traditional outfits and trying out some local dishes as well. One of the most unique features of the traveller in a Gemini… when travelling off course… is that they usually get bored sticking to the same place over days. Once they are done exploring one place they are ready for the next and thus they will prefer a package tour. Geminis would probably pack their cell phones, books, magazines and novels on holidays. On the other hand, being academic oriented they will like to travel cities like Hong Kong, Melbourne, Tokyo, London and Rio. But they will try to adjust with you if you are offering him or her an adventure holiday in the Indian Himalayan region OR wildlife safari in Ranthambore National Park.
You share your sun sign with: Johnny Depp, Morgan Freeman, Chris Evans, Mark Wahlberg, Dave Franco, Mithun Chakroborty, Idina Menzel, Kate Upton, Jesy Nelson and Angelina Jolie.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
The lady here is a mermaid and man here is a sailor. Yes buddies… the Cancer people love to stick to water and hence if you propose a beach holiday, he or she is always ready to travel with you. A Cancer could be a perfect companion if you are seeking for a leisure holiday in Kerala or rejuvenating escape to Bali, Hawaii or Maldives. They are the most sentimental travellers you will come across and you will often experience days of nostalgia with them. The Cancer people like to visit their memories and hence you will find them visiting the same destinations year after year. In other terms, a Cancer traveller doesn’t like to hop around and thus they prefer customized tour packages. If you ask a Cancerian for a week holiday in Switzerland in return they will ask… how about an Ocean Cruise in the Mediterranean Sea?
You share your sun sign with: Tom Cruise, Vin Diesel, Nelson Mandela, Will Ferrel, Tom Hanks, Sylvester Stallone, Lindsay Lohan, Selena Gomez, Ashley Tisdale, Karishma Kapoor, Katrina Kaif and Cheryl Cole.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
If you want to treat the world history with excessive indulgence then you better travel in style with a Leo. They mostly refrain from hazardous holidays like trekking, skiing or biking but seek to dig into the cultural and heritage clamour. Being the sun sign-beater, the majestic and royal Leos will search for a luxury holiday package in Rajasthan and prefer a 5 star accommodation in Lake Palace, Udaipur. So… be ready for a luxury HOLIDAY IN INDIA when you are travelling with a Leo. Everything that they will try out while travelling will reflect royalty and elegance. If you offer them an exotic continental dish… they will simply deny and in return they will offer you free of cost Maharaja Thali. You never know that travelling with a Leo on road may end up whizzing through streets on the classic and smooth 1965 Bentley S3 Saloon. Well… the Leo as a traveller is always determined and exuberant and mostly likes to travel in a group. They love music, and would plan a vacation around a big concert. Hence their ideal foreign locations are Athens, Giza, Rome and Jordan and from the list of Indian destinations… Agra, Udaipur, Jaipur, Khajuraho and Hampi will their picks.
You share your sun sign with: Barack Obama, Daniel Radcliffe, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Chris Hemsworth, Triple H, Sanjay Dutt, Sandra Bullock, Halle Berry, Mia Kunis, Kajol, Madonna and J Lo.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
“Damn!!! The hotel room as you saw on the internet while booking is absolutely different when you stepped into…” buddy!!! Then you are dead if you are travelling with a Virgo. They love to stick according to their plans and hence make sure everything is well managed. A Virgo will often go for a trusted tour operator and will make a list of all the essential items to carry… what to see, shop and savour. So if you are travelling with a Virgo then you are likely not to miss anything as he or she would have done the homework. On the other hand, Virgo people are caring and fun loving. So if everything is going according to a plan then they are the big time entertainer. They are not going to leave you to rest in peace. A traveller in a Virgo will always seek to travel unexplored places having some productive purpose. They often travel purposely as they love to gain practical skills. They are methodical and love to analyze things where ever they go. If you are travelling with a Virgo… say to Bishnupur in West Bengal, which is one of the unexplored heritage sites in India… you will notice that he or she is studying in details the terracotta work. In other terms, they prefer a skillful holiday in Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Rajasthan in India and from foreign locations they will pick Paris and Rome.
You share your sun sign with: Adam Sandler, Paul Walker, Ronaldo, Jack Black, Akshay Kumar, Rishi Kapoor, Rupert Grint, Cameron Diaz, Beyonce Knowles, Kareena Kapoor and Keke Palmer.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
The Libra people mostly like to travel to a balanced environment where they can have a bit of activity and bit of basking. An enamouring holiday in Goa could be an ideal pick for a Libra. So they will love to go to places where things are organized. As a traveller they will often want to be accompanied by a sweetheart person but at the same time they are open to meeting strangers. An inborn diplomat, they often like to participate in social and communal activities. Although the Libra travellers mostly seek a leisure holiday, they don’t require grandeur like Leos do. If they are travelling in a group travel package… you can expect them to control each and every unexpected circumstance. On the other hand, being romantic at times they love a little bit of privacy. So don’t knock the Libra door where it is written “Do Not Disturb”. In addition, the Libra loves to try out unique food and wine. Travelling with a Libra is really fun as they can adjust themselves to any place as they don’t have such preferences. Still a backwater holiday in Kerala may stir their mood graciously than camping in Pangong Lake in Ladakh. Their ideal vacation list will have San Francisco, Las Vegas, Miami and Los Angeles amongst the foreign locations and Goa, Kerala, Andaman and Himachal Pradesh from Indian destinations.
You share your sun sign with: Zac Efron, Will Smith, Josh Hutcherson, Hugh Jackman, Amitabh Bachchan, Hilary Duff, Avril Lavigne and Bella Thorne.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
A bit reserved when they are travelling. For the Scorpio… vacation time is for romance. You will often notice that a Scorpio will often stretch their pocket on booking private villas or a luxury beach resort on a secluded beach. Well… as a traveller, in other terms, they are very curious and loves to dig into petty matters. Even an ideal terracotta brick lying in front of the heritage wall will seem like a part of history to a Scorpio. Nonetheless, a structured holiday will be their first preference rather than going for an unexpected weekend escape. The Scorpios are one of the most passionate and philosophical travellers and loves to stick to a diverse landscape. Travelling with a Scorpio, you may at times have to be intense and overcome challenges. Visiting the Pyramids in Egypt and the Great Wall of China would always appeal to them. They can withstand any climatic conditions.
You share your sun sign with: Leonardo DiCaprio, Shah Rukh Khan, Ryan Gosling, Wayne Rooney, Julia Roberts, Anne Hathaway, Emma Stone, Lorde, Aishwarya Rai and Katy Perry.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
In reality they are the most talkative people you will come across but when they are travelling they seek for peace. Ah! DO NOT INTEFERE when they are quiet… else you are going to ruin your holiday. The Sagittarians are inborn travellers and love both adventure and leisure holidays. As a traveller you will enjoy their company as the traveller in a Sagittarius will drive you to some unexplored places like the remote Zanskar region, Kutch in Gujarat and far North East India. They also love to explore new culture and try to learn when travelling. But remember guys… don’t blindly depend on a Sagittarius as they are not good planners and are largely dependent on their fellow companion. They are free birds and hence taking such burdens is not their cup of tea. As I said that they look for peace while travelling and hence tries to escape the crowd. A typical Sagittarius will pick remote places and won’t even mind trekking and camping. So their ideal foreign picks will be Tromso in Northern Norway, Alaska, Jackson Hole and Wyoming.
You share your sun sign with: Brad Pitt, Walt Disney, Aaron Rodgers, Arjun Rampal, Scarlett Johansson, Lia Marie Johnson and Britney Spears.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
When you are travelling with a Capri then make sure that you are having some good time. Well, the Capris love to be accompanied by hi-fi people… not just they need a company. As they love things to happen in an organized way, they will prefer people who are organized and knowledgeable. Similarly, they love to travel those places where things are easily available. For example, they won’t stop at a shop for shopping, rather they will be visiting a mall if they are in a city OR when they are travelling they will visit those traditional and vibrant markets. So if you ask a Capri to spend a couple of days in the remote Zanskar region with only a few packets of Maggie and bread for meals… then things may not match with you. On the other hand, they are always ready for places like Kerala, Goa, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh in India and Bilbao, Perpignon, Cape Town, Melbourne, Sydney and Queensland from foreign locations. In other terms, like any typical traveller, the Capris like unexpected things and outdoor activities.
You share your sun sign with: Liam Hemsworth, Jim Carrey, Hrithik Roshan, Salman Khan, Norman Reedus, Jinxx, Dolly Parton, Muhammad Ali, Pitbull and Rayan Lopez.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
A Spa and Ayurvedic holiday in Kerala is what motivates an Aquarian. Although their interest varies a lot when it comes to travel, they mostly seek for a leisure holiday in the midst of a vast ecosphere. So a backwater cruise in Allepppey may strike them the most rather than houseboats in Srinagar. They are the real stargazers and you will often notice that they will start to correlate the real world with the scene they saw once in a motion picture. Being progressive by nature… the Aqua often fights against injustice. So traveling to places like Nigeria and Middle East countries are always on the menu. In other terms, a traveller in an Aqua is always a planner but at the same time they are dependent on their travel companion. They are hardly solo travellers.
You share your sun sign with: Taylor Lautner, Cristiano Ronaldo, Bob Marley, Justin Timberlake, Tom Hiddleston, Christian Bale, Chloe Moretz, Alicia Keys, Preity Zinta, and Jennifer Aniston
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
They love to remain simple as by their nature. The Pisces are the kindest travellers you will come across and often you will find them helping out others. So on their way, even if they are travelling somewhere and notice a sick animal, they will try their best to aid them. Well… the Pisces travellers do not have any specific choice of destination. They love both adventure and leisure but will often look for peace where ever they go. So a holiday in the Lakswadweep Islands OR an exotic weekend vacation in Coorg is in their list. For adventure they will stick to easy treks in the Garhwal Himalaya… hence the valley of flowers trek is in their adventure activities menu. If you are accompanied by a Pisces then make sure that you are able to adjust to their imaginative world and emotional nature. They are romantics and love to spend time in the midst of diversified nature. They don’t believe in showing off things like booking a 5 Star accommodation OR reserving a vintage car. So a budget holiday in Spain is perfect for them. Hence from their travel diary you can pick some foreign locations like Ireland and British Columbian Coast.
You share your sun sign with: Steve Jobs, Daniel Craig, Aamir Khan, Bruce Willis, Garrett Clayton, Kesha Sebert, Rihanna and Justin Bieber.
So… what do you think? Who is your right travel partner? Let’s share your feedback below in the comment box. Well… I’m a Taurus and I assume Aries, Sagi and Pisces are the right travel partners for me.
