Planning a travel is exciting, but selecting a destination is another story altogether. There are a lot of factors to take into consideration like time of the year, fellow travelers, budget, etc. But have you ever chosen your travel destinations based on your sun-sign? Since your sun sign revolves around your characteristics and personality, it can actually help you pick a place that has the perfect temperament for you. Check out these travel destinations in India that are perfect for you to take a road trip to, according to your sun sign.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
The ever-energetic Aries is the poster kid for every traveler who is filled with the wanderlust of the adventurous kind. Always up for anything exciting, Aries would rather jump off a cliff than relaxing at the beach. Extreme and exotic destinations like Ladakh, Spiti, and Meghalaya are tailor-made for the Aries amongst us. The demanding nature of the travel that they prefer, makes the trustworthy Ford Endeavour a perfect companion for an Aries explorer.
Dominant Characteristic: Adventurous
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Emerging from the exact opposite end of the spectrum are Taureans. A Taurean loves his/her vacations and wants to use them to relax to the fullest. They cannot be bothered with extreme sports, long hikes, or breaking a sweat even. And why should they be when there are things like room service and private beaches? A lazy retreat in Goa or staycations in the city would be ideal for a Taurean.
Dominant Characteristic: Laidback
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
A Gemini believes that travel is the best teacher. Known for their skill to adapt to any situation, they are partial toward interaction with nature, different cultures, animals etc. National parks like Ranthambore, Jim Corbett or Kaziranga, that are teeming with wildlife, or destinations like Kasol and Ziro Valley are an amazing place to know more about India’s culture, flora, and fauna. Add the dependable Ford EcoSport and you have the perfect travel plans for Geminis.
Dominant Characteristic: Adaptable and Always Keen to Learn
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Make way for the water baby! A Cancerian takes the fact that they are a water sign pretty seriously. As long the destination has some sort of a water body involved, they are happy. The one thing they like more than pools, beaches and ponds are family vacations. They prefer driving to the same destination every year with their family because it feels like home, rather than try something foreign. The road trip along the coastal regions of Goa and Pondicherry or the backwaters in Kerala, spell the perfect holiday for a Cancerian.
Dominant Characteristic: Homely
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Whether it’s travel or life in general, Leos like to go the whole nine yards. Intricately involved in every little detail, a Leo must have everything planned to perfection. Being the real-life royals that they are, Leos prefer to holiday in style just like the royals before them. Palaces in Jaipur, Udaipur, and Jaisalmer feels like a homecoming to them. They also would like visiting forts, palaces and other sites of ancient grandeur like Hampi and Khajuraho.
Dominant Characteristic: Larger Than Life
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
“Planning makes everything better,” is the motto of every Virgo. A Virgo would plan their holiday based on all the research they do. They love lists and would jot down every single thing before setting off. This ensures you never miss out on anything while on holiday but it also leaves little space for spontaneity. A scenic road trip to tried and tested destinations like Manali, Shimla, Udaipur, Goa or Kerala is a Virgo’s idea of an ideal vacation.
Dominant Characteristic: Planners
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Planning a trip for a Libran is a dream. They try to see the positives in everything and also adapt themselves well enough. Always on the lookout for the perfect balance, Librans like a little bit of everything when it comes to travel. The picturesque hamlets of Dharamsala and Mussoorie make for great travel destinations. To add a tad bit more adventure into the mix, a Libran should visit the beautiful state of Sikkim in the trustworthy Ford EcoSport that takes care of the road for you while you indulge in the good food, great views, and special company!
Dominant Characteristic: No-fuss, balanced
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
This one is a toughie. A Scorpio is literally impossible to gauge. One moment they would prefer something simple and the very next, they would be as audacious as possible. This trait however, makes Scorpions some of the most hard-core travelers there are. They love a challenge, and hence an exhilarating drive and hardcore trek to the blistering cold of the North would be something up their alley. And at the same time, they wouldn’t say no to a cozy cabin in the woods of Kasol or a private villa in Goa either! Keeping up with the Scorpios is a demanding job that can only be fulfilled by a sturdy vehicle like the Ford Endeavour.
Dominant Characteristic: Strong-headed
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Sagittarians are fun and fickle at the same time. Seeming to have a lot of good luck, Sagittarians are not some of the best planners you’d meet. They basically are always up for anything interesting, whether it’s travel or life. A Sagittarian is a person who would just hop into their car and drive off to wherever the road takes them. Hence, exploring the unexplored on a road trip would be the song to a Sagittarians’’ beat – places like Tawang, Varanasi, Varkala – anything that’s not really usual is just about right for them.
Dominant Characteristic: Carefree
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Practical and posh is the best way to describe a Capricorn. They love to travel, adventure and holidays but, in an organized fashion. For a Capricorn, going to a well-known establishment in a posh locale is travel done right. Take them to royal Rajasthan or heavenly Gulmarg and they’d be the happiest.
Dominant Characteristic: Practical
Aquarius (January 20 to February 18)
If there’s anyone that makes for good company, it’s an Aquarian. Friendly and undemanding, that’s exactly what an Aquarian expects out of their travels too. It’s easier to find them at a chilled-out destination rather than on some heavy-duty adventure. A spa-cation in Kerala backwaters or shacking up at a resort in Gokarna, after a relatively no-hassle drive, is the kind of getaways that an Aquarian is after.
Dominant Characteristic: Friendly
Pisces (February 19 to March 20)
The most otherworldly of all signs, Pisceans find simple things the most fascinating. Always one to prefer nature over man-made wonders, a Piscean would rather a simple meal and rustic lodging in a breath-taking place than the full royal treatment in an extravagant hotel. They would love to drive off to the middle of nowhere and just pitch a tent. Places like the far-flung Andamans and the misty hamlet of Vattakanal are ideal places for them to lose themselves to their surroundings.
Dominant Characteristic: Intuitive
Now all you got to do is grab your fellow sun-sign mates and get on the road!
