We looked at the stars... or was that the sun? And have been blessed with blinding—and quite frankly unignorable visions of the travel fortunes of all Zodiac signs for the Year of the Dog. Our visions are supported and backed by credible sources such as the fortune teller that reads palms just below my office after 7 p.m. Perhaps I should also ask him to predict my surprise travel destinations before I make the booking for my weekend getaway!

This is your year! The stars say travel with companions this year. Not because solo travel sucks but your best experiences will be with your “pack” or at least one companion.

Tips

  • Couple or group trips

  • Travel outdoors for the greatest adventures

  • Treat yourself, no need to wait to be a good boy/girl

The stars favour you this year. But your personal finances might be an issue, so keep an eye on your daily spending to save for longer getaways. If you can’t, then you best start looking for budget vacation ideas.

Tips

  • Spend less money on eating out

  • Patience and prudence

  • Relaxing getaways are your jam

You enjoy the familiar. But it’s a routine that has you travelling to the same places over and over again. With the Year of the Dog nipping at your hooves, it’s time to add some spice to your life.

  • Ease into spontaneity

  • Try new things in familiar vacation destinations

Exuding an aura of confidence, your peers often fall in line with your planning and suggestions. This is no exception for travelling. But people slow you down… so you might want to go solo to avoid headaches.

Tips

  • Lead a small group of friends on budget travel adventures

  • Take more exciting solo holidays to decompress

  • The “Tiger Show” is not a convention for peers of the same zodiac

You’re always top-dog and you travel like it. But this isn’t your year and a surprise trip or two might help you ease the stress off your job and career headaches. A symbol of power, you need to find balance by taking more beach vacations. Or whatever makes you chill and mellow.

Tips

  • Opt for beaches and resorts

  • Know when to take a step back

  • Show your friends you’re down to earth as well

You blend in with locals, get along with fellow travellers and have few issues being alone. However, you’ve rarely made lasting connections with people you’ve met on your travels. It’s time to dive deeper into your holidays.

Tips

  • Tone the over-friendliness down

  • Discover and learn a new language

  • Travel anywhere and make a (real) friend

Travel Feng Shui

A free spirit that’s always got a list of activities to do. That’s great and all, but spare a thought for your travel companions. Save it for tomorrow or at least pace yourself. Ever wondered why you suddenly fall sick after your packed vacation?

Tips

  • Hold your horses! Don’t do everything in one day

  • Don’t let yourself be tamed

  • Pace yourself, there’s a year of travelling to be done

Sure-footed on rough terrain, but you’re often picked on by those with sharper teeth. However, when you’re in your element few can keep up. Don’t be sheeple and follow trends. Instead, you do you and scale challenges.

Tips

  • Whatever style of travel makes you happy, do it.

  • Climb a mountain

  • Go backpacking

Mischievous and probably too clever for your own good sometimes. Remember to respect the customs and different ways of life especially when you travel. Soak up a new culture and learn to appreciate it.

Tips

  • Visit and take time to appreciate museums

  • Learn about a foreign culture

  • Is your travel buddy shaking his/her head at your actions? Stop doing it

With your time in the limelight quickly coming to an end, don’t spend too much time sulking about missed opportunities. Instead look towards the potential this new year holds! The early bird catches the worm. So plan your leave early and book your trips.

Tips

  • Get cheap flights by planning early

  • Travel spontaneously

  • Don’t wake the people rooming with you at 5 a.m.

Follow these tips and your year in travels will be one to remember, or so my second opinion, a colleague who's into tarot reading says. Whatever you choose to believe in, believe that travelling is the solution to every problem. Because flying is faster than running away from your problems.
