Are you ready to paaaaarrrtttyyy? We certainly are!
Your love of organising events makes you the perfect person to plan a holiday for your many friends. Everyone will want to come with you because you’ll make any sacrifice to ensure they’re all having the best time. Wherever you go there needs to be plenty of dressing up and people watching (or should we say judging!).
Your holiday soulmate: Monica Geller
Your perfect destination: New York
You love observing and that’s one of the reasons you make such a great friend since you’re so good at recognising when someone needs your help. On the flip-side, a holiday allows you to take some much needed time for yourself. So spend it indulging in the things you love like romantic sights, soaking up the culture and picking up plenty of souvenirs for your friends back home.
Your holiday soulmate: Charlotte York
Your perfect destination: Paris
Like your close cousin the Commander you're a natural born leader and your passion for life is what draws people to you. Your natural ability as a psychologist means you’re able to tell exactly how people are feeling and how to help them through any crisis. A camping holiday where you’re encouraging people to build fires, bug hotels and a tree swing over a river would be perfect.
Your holiday soulmate: Cameron Tucker
Your perfect destination: Family camping trip
Your life is focused on a never-ending thirst for knowledge and creating balance in the world. You might appear quiet but you have very strong opinions and will fight for what you believe is morally right. You need a holiday where your intellect is matched with creating something to help people.
Your holiday soulmate: Lisa Simpson
Your perfect destination: Building a school in Uganda
No one else lives in the moment like you. Being the centre of attention and in the spotlight is where you feel most happy. So when your friends ask you on a last minute trip, forget any chores you have lined up, max out your credit card for the flight and grab your passport because the next few days are going to be some of the best memories you’ve ever had.
Your holiday soulmate: Carrie Bradshaw
Your perfect destination: Rio de Janeiro
Nothing will ever hold you back, which means that tradition and logic are not nearly as important as people, ideas and pushing yourself as far as you can go. If you’re not striving you’re not living. So take yourself on holiday to a place where the mad sights and sounds are begging for adventure to happen.
Your holiday soulmate: Harry Potter
Your perfect destination: Marrakech
As the life and soul of the party, there’s always plenty of people and energy around you. Your endless appetite for enjoying everything the world has to offer means you need a holiday that can match your desire for fun. So take yourself somewhere the lights never fade and the action never stops. Where else but VEGAS BABY!
Your holiday soulmate: Willy Wonka
Your perfect destination: Las Vegas
Although you can come across as reserved and shy you have passion flowing through your veins. Your romantic side means you love to read, travel and learn about new cultures. So go on holiday somewhere with breathtaking scenery and plenty of history, while enjoying a glass of the local wine.
Your holiday soulmate: Bella Swan
Your perfect destination: Mendoza, Argentina
When you're given a task you won’t stop until it’s done. But this can mean you get burnt out easily, so when you’re on holiday you need some down time. Since nothing makes you happier than surrounding yourself with tradition and order, take yourself to a country where strong values are respected more than anything else.
Your holiday soulmate: Hermione Granger
Your perfect destination: Japan
You’ll never miss a friend's birthday or break a promise and you love making sure all the pieces fit together perfectly. Your love of logic, traditions, and rules make you perfect for planning complex trips with many connections. For those reasons a grand train journey where your ability to get things done will mean cultural differences, languages and precise timings for transfers won’t be any trouble for you.
Your holiday soulmate: Edward Cullen
Your perfect destination: Trans-European train journey
You’re a natural born leader with plenty of drive and determination. You recognise people’s strengths and know how to encourage them to achieve their full potential. So plan a holiday that’s going to push you to your limit and show your friends what you can achieve when you work together.
Your holiday soulmate: Miranda Priestley
Your perfect destination: Mountain climbing in the Himalayas
The world around you is just waiting to be discovered and in no way are you going to let regulations and common social codes hold you back on your mission. Soak up the local knowledge while you become inspired to create and innovate. You need to visit a country where rules are seen more as guidelines and the history runs deep.
Your holiday soulmate: Severus Snape
Your perfect destination: Rome
You’re on a constant journey to try new experiences and even though you’re always pushing yourself you’re never phased by anything. So when you go on holiday you need a no holds barred destination where the locals are up for trying anything and having as good a time as you are.
Your holiday soulmate: Haley Dunphy
Your perfect destination: Ibiza
Grand projects make you feel alive and you’re never happier than when you’re being hands-on and learning as you go. Although you’re good in social groups your introverted nature means you need plenty of private time. Take to the road, let the wind blow through your hair, and prepare for getting your hands dirty along the way.
Your holiday soulmate: Tris Prior
Your perfect destination: Motorbike trip across America
Picking people apart along with their beliefs is like honey to a bear for you. If you don’t want to rub people up the wrong way you should choose to holiday with others who love discussing as much as you do. Go to a place where everything will be taken care of so you can focus on what you love the most; debating the theories of life, the universe and everything in between.
Your holiday soulmate: Chandler Bing
Your perfect destination: All-inclusive resort in Bali
You love finding inconsistencies and your extremely logical mindset will probably make you critical with more careless types. However, your introverted nature makes you perfect at coming up with brilliant theories so give yourself some space to think in a place where everything runs like clockwork!
Your holiday soulmate: Yoda
Your perfect destination: Switzerland
Now you're armed with the facts, there’s nothing stopping you from having the most awesome trip. You’re always going to return home completely energised and ready to take on the world. YAASSS!
