Water signs: Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces
Water signs can be intuitive, sensitive, intense, emotional and nurturing. Family vacations or getaways with close friends are ideal for water signs.
If a Cancer has the need to travel, this is usually in search for the feeling of home. They want their horizons widened and their perspective changed. To meet a country, they will gladly live, breathe and eat with the locals, sensing their tradition, customs and family values.
Scorpios are strange travellers, for they can get so attached to a location that they might even choose to leave home and inhabit it. Close to water and they feel good sticking with seas or rivers on their move.
We are often misled by the nature of Pisces, calm and quiet as if they don’t have any preferences regarding travel. A need a trip for the seaside, cocktails and crazy nights out, in search of their identity.
Booking.com recommends: a trip to iconic Paris, France to stay in a stylish apartment where you can relax on a boat ride on the Seine, enjoy traditional French cuisine and soak up the romantic atmosphere. Stay in the heart of Paris at the beautifully present Apartments Du Louvre, a perfect home away from home stay. Set in a quiet street in Les Halles the fully equipped apartments boast an ideal location just 650 yards from the Louvre Museum and a short walk to the Champs-Élysées district.
Fire signs: Aries, Leo and Sagittarius
Fire signs are (not surprisingly) fiery, energetic, lively, fun and optimistic people. They want an adventurous holiday where they can be constantly on the move, right where the action is.
Aries think that their vacation should be an active adventure. They like hiking, exploring new places, and enjoy less popular destinations, where they can socialize with the locals and find new grounding.
Leos are attracted to warm, cozy places, capital cities that can be seen from space, and in search for a view on royal residences and palaces. They like luxurious destinations that offer a lot of sun, and their innate activity forces them to see as much as possible during their trip.
Sagittarius representatives love travel so much that they don’t even care where they are going. When they reach their travel destination, they will instantly plan a new one, and use every single moment to breathe in every scent of the place they have visited.
A South African safari holiday is the perfect trip – combining beaches and restaurants with travelling across African plains to spot the most incredible wildlife and meeting new people.
Booking.com recommends: Dungbeetle River Lodge offers safari-style accommodation right on the banks of the Sundays River. The terrace decks offer striking river views and guests can enjoy a freshly cooked breakfast each morning. This is a great base for exploring what South Africa has to offer and it’s just a few miles from the Addo Elephant National Park.
Earth signs: Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn
Earth signs are practical, organised, resourceful, ambitious, and curious.
Someone as hedonistic as a Taurus needs a vacation to be able to rest, sleep, float on water and enjoy local specialities, but the most important thing they need is their personal contact with planet Earth. True gastronomes who love food, bazaars and traditional craft workshops.
Virgos will respectfully learn many things on their travels, accurate historical data and traditions, but in fact, they are truly fascinated by the differences in wildlife, by mountains and temples.
A Capricorn will want to visit a popular destination to understand what all the fuss is about. Doing everything from A to Z, sightseeing and nightlife, in time they might discover that there’s no place like home.
Booking.com recommends: Carneros Resort & Spa is perched atop Napa Valley and boasts three outdoor pools, three gourmet restaurants and an award-winning spa. The suites and cottage come with a furnished patio, outdoor dining area, outdoor shower and guests can make use of the free bicycle hire to explore the grounds. Buena Vista Winery, Viansa Winery, Cline Cellars and other Napa Valley wineries are within 12 minutes’ drive.
Air signs: Gemini, Libra and Aquarius
Air signs are often adventurous, sociable, independent, open-minded, inventive and curious. When travelling, their greatest joy lies in getting lost, meeting local people and communicating in whichever language comes useful.
Ready to learn, absorb and discover, a curious Gemini will love to travel the world in this lifetime. They’re also very adaptable and will want to fully experience the local customs of a particular place.
Libras see their vacation as a unique opportunity to acquire new knowledge and meet interesting people. Educational trips, antique shops, meeting the locals and if possible – having a picture from every single popular location they have ever visited.
Aquarians really want their travel adventures to be unique. They will never return from a vacation without a good book, a local guide or a new app that will keep them in the same time zone. They love a change of course, spontaneity and freedom to fly wherever they are moved by the moment.
Booking.com recommends: an exciting ski holiday to Banff, Canada where you can take part in extreme activities or simply relax with a hot drink and delicious food in the crisp mountain air. Moose Hotel & Suites is just a one minute walk from the heart of Banff and features a spa centre and on-site bar and units have patios or a balcony for you to relax. The onsite Meadow Spa & Pools features treatment rooms, an outdoor hot pool, indoor swimming pool as well as rooftop hot pools with views of the Canadian Rocky Mountains.
