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!

  • Shinjuku Garden is a 15 minute drive from @ritzcarlton Tokyo. It's one of the most popular gardens for the Cherry blossoms. Three different styles have been incorporated in the design of the garden: Japanese Traditional Garden, English Landscape Garden, and the French Formal Garden. They are amongst the best remnants of the Meiji era. ---------------------------------------------------#TravelwithTJD #RCMemories #hellotomorrow
  • We'll always find our way back to each other... 💫 ---------------------------------------------------

  • Last night, I took a 9 hour direct flight from Dubai to Narita airport in Tokyo with @emirates on the A380. I had planned on sleeping throughout the entire flight but ended up watching one movie after another with Kaiseki cuisine and a bento box! It's my first time in Japan and I've noted all your recommendations! #TravelwithTJD

  • The best way to laugh... when you are laughing so hard...You can laugh till you cry, or lose your breath, but the deepest laugh is so physical that it can cause all your stomach muscles to get tight. That's what I'm taking with me forever from this episode of #TravelwithTJD @gili.lankanfushi

  • It's pink full moon tonight. Everything constantly changes and we all have a desire to pull away from the world and sometimes from each other... So tonight, at the peak of the moon, let go of any attachments that no longer belongs to you ... #TravelwithTJD @gili.lankanfushi
