It is a dilemma to everyone! When is a good time to go to Asia? When is a good time to go to the Caribbean? The endless discussions with friends and every one of them claiming different answers because Google said so, each confident answer leads to another site proving us wrong. Hopefully, this post will clear the air, somewhat. For us, as long as it is not Tsunami, earthquake or volcano season, every destination is great any time of the year! If it rains, then dance in the rain. Try it. For a change. The sun will eventually come out (Annie says so!)

{January – February – March}

{Snow gear and boots} EVERYWHERE in Europe. In a nutshell. Lebanon too! New York, Alaska

{Beach, flip flops and margaritas} Mexico, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, Bahamas, Barbados, Miami, Cayman Islands, Turks & Caicos, Jamaica, Brazil, Peru, South Africa, Vietnam, Laos, Maldives, Venezuela, Argentina, Chile, Australia, Oman, U.A.E, India, Philippines, Nepal, Thailand,Malaysia

{April – May – June}

Spain, Italy, Paris, London (always a tricky one), Amsterdam, Indonesia (Bali)  Beirut ( Ski and beach!), L.A, Japan(Cherry blossoms), Greece, Portugal, Philippines, Bahamas, French Polynesia, Mexico, Cuba, Jamaica (Although the Caribbean hurricane season starts in May) Sweden, Prague, Almafi Coast, Cyprus, Hawaii, Lebanon

{July – August – September}

Iceland, Greece, Italy, France, Spain (IBIZA), Indonesia (Bali), Seychelles, Canada, Kenya, Sardinia, Scotland for festivals, Amsterdam, Egypt, Bhutan, China, Argentina, Malta, San Fransisco, Orlando, Chicago (Music festival), Malaysia

{October – November – December}

{Beach, flip flops and margaritas} Florida, Mauritius, Texas, Australia, Ecuador, South Africa, Hong Kong, New Zealand, South East Asia towards December, St. Barts, California, Belize, UAE

{Ski and boots} Courchevel, French Alps, Berlin, New York, All of Europe, Lebanon

Hurricane Seasons: May is usually a fantastic time to still head out to the Caribbean, however we faced the beginning of the hurricane season towards the end of May, so we would say end of May to November.

Monsoon Season: For most of our trips to South East Asia we experienced rain in Bali in early October, and showers in Thailand by mid December. In Koh Samui it rains in December, while in Phuket it’s sunny! Sometimes you are lucky and your trip is cloudy or no spells of rain, we did not mind at all! The smell after the rain is so beautiful in these places and the sound of the rain in the tropical island is quite a phenomenal sight to see! We would be in flip flops and dance in the summer rain! We would say end of June to December, expect rainy season. Some more than others, but when it rains, it pours!

  • Back in the desert 🐫 and I think summer just kicked in 🤷🏼‍♀️
  • I woke up right here on my back way from Voss to Oslo. 350 metres above Oslo city and right in Nordmarka forest🌳
  • I could be staring at the same mountains that loomed over passing Vikings and I’m in love... Wouldn’t you be?
  • From Oslo, I took the NSB train to Myrdal which is a 5 hour journey, then boarded the Flåm Railway, named by @natgeotravel one of the most beautiful train journey in Europe taking you through west Norway’s most beautiful scenery. Here we stopped for 10 minutes to step out of the railway for pictures. Can you see Chloè by the window too? ☺️
  • The sun doesn’t rise till around 9am, so it gave me a lot of time to sleep in. Flåm is a small village in southwestern Norway, in an area known for its fjords. It sits at the end of Aurlandsfjord. It’s peaceful, its historical, it’s quiet and it’s not a place you will find all over social media. I found these little red cabins while walking around the small village trying not to slip on the ice that covers the road! I did though, I slipped, laughed got bruised and luckily my camera didn’t fall into the water... but it was so close!
  • I’ve found Kattegat ♥️
  • I was always in a hurry to be someone, always in a hurry to become something and do everything. I didn’t waste my time on things or people that would get me nowhere. I crave a slow life, a simple life filled with adventures. No fast cars or expensive homes and for almost all my life, I’ve built a life in which I never needed to escape from. This is my beautiful reality and this photo represents that to me.
  • I was thinking of a caption that can relate to what I was thinking... but the truth is, simple... I was thinking of absolutely nothing at all... just the fact that I was waking up in the middle of a frozen sea. ♥️
  • Gelato for breakfast and it’s melting!! An obvious one ofcourse 😊 That was my next hunt for ‘inspiration in finding a little bit of Italy in the UAE’  project with @theitalianwayuae How many times a day would you have Gelato in Italy? For me, it was around 4-5!! #TheItalianWay
