Monsoons, hurricanes, natural phenomena, overall crap weather, high season, low season, shoulder season (what the heck is shoulder season?).

This blog idea came about when a client said he would love to go to Iceland in the Summer to see the northern lights, the problem is... he can't. Icelandic summers are the season of the midnight sun, meaning, the sun never sets. I'm not blaming him for not knowing this because honestly, I almost forgot about this.

Here are my top 5 tips for figuring it all out!
 

1. What days do you have off? Do these days involve a holiday? Knowing this is important because it will determine prices, traveler congestion, and availability.

2. Make a list of all the places that you want to visit during this time.

3. Think about your budget. This usually determines where you'll end up going. If your budget is on the lower end, you'll want to visit a destination during low season, higher budget means you can do whatever you want, whenever you want!

4. Now, we have to ask ourselves "Why is this low/high/shoulder season? What am I missing during low season? What do I want to experience? What will the weather be like? Will it be a calamity with all the other travelers?"
