  4. Being a true Sagittarian (30 November) it’s essential that I travel. My astrological sign demands that I always have to see what is around the next bend and over the next hill. Similarly, material possessions mean nothing in comparison with experiences. Sure, I’m often alone, but I’m never lonely as my two rescued dogs are the only company I need and hey, they love travelling as much as I do.
