Also enjoy fresh artichokes, pecorino cheese and watch legendary Explosion of the Cart in Florence. Celebrate Thai New Year on Phuket or go trekking in Nepal.

June

Celebrate the midsummer sun at Machu Picchu or in Sweden. Waterfalls are roaring with volume in Iceland and Yosemite, where you can also observe famous moonbows. Explore Estonian bogs or tropical rainforests of Borneo, watching orangutans. This is also the best time to cycle down the famous Death Road in Bolivia and float the Amazon. If that sounds too extreme, drink Czech beer and sing with Roma on the streets of Prague.

July

Are you brave enough to take part in Blood Festival in Peru? And what about Ultra-Trail du Mont Blanc? Mid-summer is also a perfect occasion to visit some colder countries for their breathtaking sceneries, ice caves and fjords. Take a glacier cruise in Alaska, go salmon fishing in Norway or on a whale safari in Greenland.

August

This month it gets crowded pretty much everywhere. However being in a crowd can also be fun, if you are in a nightclub of Ibiza or at Sziget Festival, Hungary. But if you are not into this you can still find a quiet place while hiking Grossglockner High Alpine Road in Austria or the Peruvian Andes on your way to Machu Picchu. Only now you can see Peruvian Macaw licking minerals.

September

It's about time to head to Mediterranian again to try octopus at Santorini, sardines at Corsica and get the last glimpse of those stunning summer sunsets in Croatia.

Also, it's your chance to tour autumnal castles of Scotland and go Munro Bagging in the highlands before it gets too muddy.

October

Foodies flock to Tuscany for new wine and truffle season, while wild nature lovers go to Kenya and Tanzania to observe wildebeest migration. It's time to witness a unique coral polyp spawn at Great Barrier Reef.

November

While it gets gloomy in Europe, beach season starts in Rio de Janeiro and it's the right time to hit famous Blocos street parties. South Korea is never more beautiful than during the fall. And the gardens of Agra are never better than after monsoon. Guatemala offers authentic Mayan Pole Flyer Dancing and colorful Burning the Devil ceremony. If that's not impressive, dare try zazamushi, stonefly larvae from the Tenryu river in Japan.

December

Dancing at a ball is every little girl's dream, and Vienna's ball season is still a big deal. The best places to fight winter colds are famous outdoor thermal baths of Budapest and Turkish hamams.
