Best time of year to visit Seattle, Washington, weather and other travel tips

Seattle has a reputation for being a rainy city. This applies to some parts of the year, but sometimes there will not be a drop of rain. Most of the rain falls during the winter months, so the months between May and November are the best time of year to visit Seattle. The summer months are very popular, which leads to a lot of tourists and higher hotel room rates. Fall is a brilliant time to visit Seattle as many of the tourists have left, room rates have dropped and the weather is pleasant. Spring is a nice time to visit, but you may still see some rain.

Summer in Spain, heat in Madrid

Summer in Madrid, heat in Madrid

In Madrid there is a saying that goes: "Nueve meses de invierno y tres de infierno."
Translate it like this: Nine months of winter and three months of hell.
Madrid is extremely hot in the summer and can get quite cold in the winter, so cold that you can even do winter sports without any problems. Accordingly, I find that this saying hits the nail on the head. Also, there is no real spring or fall in Madrid. It's either cold or hot. The change between cold and heat is always like someone flipping a switch, someone deciding to turn on the heat all at once. Overnight, without warning, just like that.

Hawaii – Tips for travel planning

Last summer, I was lucky enough to take a dream vacation with my family. After the start in Vancouver/Vancouver Island we went to Hawaii and from there via San Francisco back home again. For Hawaii we had barely two and a half weeks, which is not exactly a lot for the island paradise. We had a great vacation, but in retrospect one is smarter. Therefore I would like to give you a few tips for planning your trip.

1. Island selection:

Which islands to visit? With this question we have dealt intensively before our trip. We read several travel guides, internet articles and travel blogs, and even watched a DVD series about Hawaii. There is certainly no universally valid answer to this question. We were mainly helped by tips from some travel blogs to make a choice. Our choice fell on Big Island (Hawaii), Kaua'i and Maui. On the way there, we made a 2-day stopover in Honolulu (O'ahu). Overall, we have been very happy with our choices and can recommend these islands to anyone. Here's some quick info on the islands:
