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!

  • In reality, if you really think about it, to miss someone is sort of missing a part of yourself. You miss the way you felt alive on adventures and sharing ideas... Because the right people make you want to throw away the plans you originally had, for a new one without having to say ‘hmm’. You just know that any adventure with them is what you crave for and, that no matter what you thought you wanted before, this is better and it’s no longer forcing things. One year ago today since I left, I’m missing my heart in Kenya. 🇰🇪
  • I still can’t get over that crazy sunrise color! A guide to tropical Salalah, Oman with @flydubai 🇴🇲 at @anantarasalalah (Link in bio) Happy Sunday!
  • I hosted the 6th social media workshop in Dubai today with such wonderful entrepreneurs - it lasted 6 hours! Reminded me on how I first started and how much I love my job!! Throwing it back to summer in Portugal where I took two weeks off and reminded myself how much we all need to step back from social pressure once in a while. 
2 more workshops to go for this month! Get in touch if you would like to join ❤️ Happy weekend!
  • Your addiction to over-thinking will come back to haunt you... Less thinking and more living 👊🏻
  • Le Liban 🇱🇧 #Lebanon
  • I found a little oasis in the middle of the desert 🌵 
What you don’t see on instagram is that I have sunk my feet in the sand so deep many times - ( Now that’s a workout for the year) I had my drone losing balance in high winds which resulted in my heart sinking over a dozen times, and have sand everywhere!! Even between my teeth!! But it’s all good :) Happy Sunday 😊
  • The outdoor season is back in Dubai!!! I’m so happy to have @zeebalife finally united with me! Picking me up when I sink in the sand after she’s done laughing! 😂

  • The beautiful infinity pool at sunrise in Oman at @anantarasalalah
  • Almost 2 years ago when I took this picture after staying a week in @sixsensesninhvanbay in Vietnam. I remember I was debating whether or not I should take the shot because it was done on my iPhone and a broken tripod. Where you following my journey then? It’s feels like another lifetime but I still remember every detail of this trip as if it was yesterday. It’s funny how a single song or a picture can bring back so many memories and how some surprisingly fade so quickly.
  • I’ve got a thousand things to say to you... and a thousands reasons not to...
  • No matter what they say... There is no such thing as work-life balance. Everything worth fighting for, unbalances your life and that's the truth. So you just make it work. 💕
  • What if your pillow could collect all your dreams and in the morning, you can connect it to a screen and watch it all over again?
