As the stars change their positions, Gemini is all set to rule for a month. Outgoing, versatile and nothing short of Columbus when it comes to exploring, the Gemini people make for the most ardent travellers. And since outgoing is what we are talking about, can we choose not to mention the ever pulsating Rio de Janeiro? Of course not.
Here are ixigo’s cues for the Gemini, who have their bags ready to head out for a grand birthday bash. Pick from our very own Bangalore, Kolkata, and yes, London. Not to forget, our hottest pick Rio! Did you say Samba?
Tighten the ropes, check the wind, and get hold of the compass. It’s time to set sailing at the Guanabara Bay at Rio. And yes, don’t forget to test the waters around the 130 islands in the bay!
Say Rio, and the first image that comes popping in the heads is samba dancers. What better than to learn a move or two at the Casa de Dança! Even the singletons will find a partner here.
Trek up to the largest art deco statue in the world, as it’s time to shake hands (not literally) with Christ the Redeemer. While you get entranced by the blinking bulbs of Rio, do remember to strike a Titanic pose. Be Jack for a while, and let the statue play Rose (no offences meant).
Have you ever seen an entire city coming alive, quite literally? Yes, we are talking of the unabashed times of the Carnival now. Visit Rio in February, to yell, hoot, and dance, in a madness that you’ll love.
Imagine if the heavens could turn upside down, it’ll make for an expanse as shimmering as Rio in the evenings. Go up the Sugarloaf Mountain or try hang gliding to turn an admirer.
Can a birthday bash be perfect without this berry torte? Nah. Just head out to Kurt, the famous pastry corner of Rio to dig into such marvels. “Good heavens”, you said that?
Up on our travel list next is another biggie for the sun sign Cancer.
