Weather is one of the most important factors when it comes to travel. There are many beautiful destinations that only stay beautiful for a few months out of the year. The rest of the time it may be frigid and painful to go outdoors in the freezing cold temperature. Or, in other climates, it could completely monsoon during the rainy season, then be so dry and blistering hot a few months later. 

These places require you to find the perfect “golden window” opportunity and aren’t ideal all year round. Fortunately, there are tons of great destinations all over the world that have a great temperature and climate all year round where all you really need with you is a light rain jacket.
