Plus: Who's your PERFECT travel buddy?

We all know that traveling is very good for us — seeing new places, experiencing different cultures, and meeting new people helps to expand our world view and gives us experiences that shape our personalities and lives.

But we don't all travel in the same way. You might be someone who plans every detail of a trip, or you could be someone who spontaneously decides to get in the car and just drive. We all have our own travel styles, and our personalities shape the nature of the way we travel.



More than that, though, there are some signs that we naturally get along with better, which can extend to traveling, too. Have you ever put thought into why you choose the travel buddy you do? Is it because she's great at keeping schedules or is it because you never know where you're going to end up when you travel together?


It can be hard at first to pick the right travel buddy, but once you do, going away on trips is ALWAYS a good time.

Since the zodiac has much to say about the signs and their characteristics, it's not surprising that the stars can weigh in on what type of traveler we are. Find out your travel style according to your zodiac sign, because the stars know that getting there is or isn't half the fun for you. You'll also be able to find out which sign is the best travel buddy for you (for those of us who have a hard time choosing the best person to take a trip with).

ARIES (Mar 21 - Apr 19): The independent and brave traveler



Aries prefers to travel alone, that way they don't have to consult or compromise with anyone else when they want to do something daring like climbing Mount Kilimanjaro or visiting a volcano in Krakatoa, Indonesia. You're dynamic, athletic and don't want to waste time overthinking every detail. You want to explore places off the beaten path, not just go to every tourist spot.

TAURUS (Apr 20 - May 20): The satisfied traveler



During the physical act of traveling (say, by train or plane), Taurus appears to be asleep and disinterested, the truth is they're going over the details of the trip and already savoring them. Taurus people are extremely thorough when it comes to making plans, so they're always ready for a switch up.

Oh, the flight was delayed in London? Taurus has a whole itinerary for the layover. Beauty and food are also really important to Taurus, so they're going to want to sample all the specialties wherever they go. They will also make sure to experience whatever wonders a place has to offer.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): The culture-vulture traveler


Geminis love to travel with their friends and family members as they are extremely social by nature. They're also very adaptable and will want to fully experience the local customs of a particular place. If you travel with a Gemini, it may seem like you're doing a show on the Travel Channel because Geminis will want to try on traditional outfits, experience local customs and taste the regional cuisine.


Don't plan to spend too long in any one place or Gemini will get bored; they like to keep moving. Luckily, Gemini will be sure to pack all their devices and will have a number of books to read on the few minutes of downtime they might have.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22): The repeat visitor



Cancer likes to go somewhere, take a ton of pictures, get nostalgic thinking about the trip, and then go back there again. Cancers are the most sentimental traveler you'll meet, but by experiencing it over and over again, they solidify the memory forever.

They tend to like to go to places near the water and stay; they won't be jumping from place to place. If they go to Hawaii, they'll stay on Oahu and not even consider traveling to Kauai or Maui.

Your Perfect Travel Buddy: Pisces

LEO (July 23 - Aug 22): The stylish traveler



If you're looking for a traveling companion who likes to rough it, the Leo isn't your best choice; they're into luxury all the way. They'll stay in the finest hotels, dine on the most fabulous of meals, and in-between site seeing will make time for pampering and spa treatments.

Leos also love to travel with people because they love having an audience. And since they enjoy theater and music, places that have both extravagance and opulence are at the top of Leo's list of vacation destinations.

VIRGO (Aug 23 - Sep 22): The prepared traveler



A Virgo will have spent so much time analyzing that by the time they actually go on the trip, they've gotten the best deals at the lowest costs and have a number of freebies. The only danger is if the hotel room that looked so nice on the internet actually is a dump and you have to go somewhere else.

Virgos will want to stick to the original plan. Sure, if there are scorpions the size of your hand crawling up the wall next to the bed, but Virgo will be OK about staying somewhere else... unless the room has a view of a brick wall. Then, Virgo will be adverse to making a fuss and changing it. On the other hand, no matter what you might need — from Dramamine to a bottle opener — Virgo will have it.

LIBRA (Sept 23 - Oct 22): The flexible traveler


For a Libra, traveling can be an excuse for a romantic encounter, either with an existing partner or someone new they meet on their travels. They're mostly looking for something fun and chill, where they can decompress and have fun — nothing too taxing and nothing that will lead to any unnecessary conflict. Libras are fun to travel with because they can adapt to anywhere and they're open to trying new things.

SCORPIO (Oct 23 - Nov 21): The passionate traveler


A Scorpio is one of the most passionate and philosophical travelers in the zodiac. They prefer a more structured trip rather than a spontaneous weekend getaway, and will save up for a dream trip to a luxury resort on a secluded beach or a houseboat down the Nile.


A Scorpio will be deeply affected by the history of a place and will learn as much about it as possible. For every place a Scorpio visits, they will come away changed.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 - Dec 19): The constant traveler



If you can be born with a wanderlust gene, then Sagittarius individuals have it. They simply love to travel, and have a tendency to feel stifled and boxed in if they don't at least have a trip planned. As much as they travel, they still feel immense joy and wonder at everything they see, everything they experience and every new person they meet.

A Sagittarius loves any kind of trip, whether it's a spontaneous road trip, a bold adventure, or a luxury vacation. As long as there's a new experience to be had, they're happy.

CAPRICORN (Dec 20 - Jan 19): The organized traveler



Capricorns like to have their itinerary all planned out. They will make their seat selection as soon as they're able and will have all of their reservations in place long before their arrival time. Before their trip, they'll have read their guidebook, highlighting the not-to-be-missed places, and will have a firm vacation plan in place.

It's not that they're not flexible, it's that they're prepared in case something gets messed up. Capricorns aren't risk-takers and would be horrified if someone suggested they not book their hotel in advance. Not knowing every detail in advance is a nightmare for a Capricorn.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 - Feb 18): The purposeful traveler


Aquarians are often fighting for social justice, so their trips usually have some kind of purpose, like volunteering for the Peace Corps or taking their birthright tour in Israel. It's not that they can't go somewhere that's only for pleasure, it's just that it's more enjoyable for them if the trip has another layer of meaning.


Aquarians want to learn something or help somebody while they're traveling, and if that just means going somewhere that the person they're traveling with wants to go to, that's fine, too.

PISCES (Feb 19 - Mar 20): The kind traveler



If while on a trip a Pisces comes across someone who needs help or a sick animal, they will do everything in their power, even if it means missing out on a boat tour or seeing the Mayan ruins.

Pisces generally are not hard and fast with what kind of trips they like to take. They can do a luxury spa or a white water rafting adventure, and actually prefer something spontaneous, rather than something planned to the last detail. Pisces will use their imaginative and creative powers no matter where they go.
