Astrology Expert Reveals The Perfect Vacation Spot For A Gemini - Exclusive

People born under the air sign of Gemini (May 21 – June 20) are represented by the symbol of the twins (via Allure). As such, they sometimes get a bad reputation of being "two faced," but that is a gross oversimplification of what is really going on inside the wonderfully complex Gemini. Highly intelligent and endlessly curious, this sign seeks constant learning, inspiration, and connection. One week they might be obsessed with the history of the American Civil War, and the next week they are budding experts on sting rays. 

Their passion for learning and for creativity can sometimes cause them to jump from one project to another, or one job to another. This is what earns them the rep for being unable to commit and "two faced," when in reality, they spread themselves too thin trying to show up for everyone they love and tackle every project they care about all at once. 

So when a busy Gemini needs a break, they need a place that will both encourage them to slow down and breathe, but also entice their love of learning and sense of adventure. So where should they go?  

The ideal vacation spot for a Gemini

According to Conde Nast Traveller, the ideal vacation spot for a Gemini is Edinburgh, Scotland. Their reasoning is that this sign that is always "thinking, thinking, thinking" can find everything from rich cultural history to fascinating architecture to learn about. We asked Astrologist Cameron Martin of Path and Purpose about this assertion, and he excitedly agreed. Martin told us, "From tales of the haunted past to endless entertainment opportunities, Edinburgh is sure to stimulate the mind of busy Gemini."

He elaborated, "Edinburgh is known for being one of the most beautiful cities in the world, steeped in history and legend. This city is a literary dream and perfect for the sign that likes to communicate and connect with others." Martin pointed out that as much as Gemini loves to experience wonderful things, they love telling others about those experiences even more, saying, "In 2004, Edinburgh was even designated as a UNESCO City of Literature. For Gemini, this is a great city to include in the stories of your travels."

So once you book your flight, curious Gemini, what should you see and do in Edinburgh? 

What to do and see

According to Trip Advisor, there are countless ways to soak up the culture, history, art, and beauty of Edinburgh. For history-loving Gemini, consider taking a variety of professional tours that will allow you to see places and hear stories you might otherwise miss. For instance, you could take an underground tour of the city that will lead you through Edinburgh's vaults. You could take cultural walking tours to see some of the most historic sites in the city from castles to churches. A bus tour could take you around the countryside, to the highlands, and even to other fabled places like Lock Ness (Geminis tend to be fascinated by legends and mythologies like that of the Loch Ness Monster).

And never underestimate the power of the local museums, pubs, and universities to get a sense of the history of the place while enjoying everything the current, modern city has to offer a curious Gemini traveller.
