We travel for numerous reasons: because we need a break from work, because we fancy a romantic getaway, or because we want to tick a place off our bucket list. But one big factor of why most of us choose to travel is to guide us towards the discovery of our true selves.
The idea that personality traits are acquired based on the month you were born may sound a bit bonkers, but your astrology sign might actually unveil important elements about you that you can aid in finding the perfect getaway you crave.
So keep an open mind and scroll down to see where you should consider heading.
