Looking for the next destination to cross off your list this May? We’ve compiled a list of spots where the temperature is not too hot, not too cold, but just right this time of year. Enjoy your pickings, Goldilocks.

Greece

Avoid crazy summer crowds and heat, but still enjoy warm weather by visiting Greece in May. The lovely weather makes it perfect for island hopping and beach parties alike.

Brazil

May is considered low season in Brazil, and generally has good weather and smaller crowds. May is also prime time to explore the rainforests, mountains, jungles and beaches of the diverse destination.

South Africa

May is one of the best months of the year to go on an African safari. It is the start of the dry season and the animals come out of hibernation this time of year. It is also a little less touristy.

Sweden

If you want the best of sunshine and wildflower season, head to Sweden in May where the sun shines as much as 18 hours. You’ll have no lack of time for hiking and outdoor activities in the countryside.

Venice

Experience the comfortable, warm start of the summer in Venice, with slightly smaller crowds, budding vineyards and outdoor markets abound.

Argentina

May is actually considered late autumn in Argentina, and Mendoza’s wine country is lit up with vibrant foliage to match. If you’re looking for a cool, fall refresher before the summer heat kicks in back home, Argentina is right up your alley.

Foods to Pack for a Long-Haul Flight (and How to Get Them Through Security)

 As airlines start nickel and dime-ing their way into the world’s wallets, travelers have had to get crafty in order to get around newly enacted add-on fees, especially when it comes to in-flight meals. Since this luxury is no longer guaranteed on some flights, particularly on low-cost, long-haul vessels, and because airport food is notoriously overpriced, passengers pack their own food to bring on these long flights. But what types of food are allowed to pass through security and also last multiple hours on a plane in varying temperatures?

Work and Play in Italy

ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.

Hotel Zeppelin, San Francisco

I lived in San Francisco during college so coming to visit the city and see all the changes was exciting. The Hotel Zeppelin was built in a once slightly shabby area that has since come alive with new hotels and restaurants for travelers looking for something different. We arrived at noon on a Friday afternoon and were immediately greeted by the hotel staff at the front desk. They were able to accommodate an early check-in, completed in just a few minutes. The lobby is as hip as the hotel name sounds, but it also offered a cozy atmosphere, with a roaring fire and comfy couches and chairs in the lounge area. Unique wall art, statues and lighting remind you of the cool factor.

Coffee Table Books for the Adult-ish Traveler

There are few things as adult-ish as a well-designed living space. When you stop strewing your Ikea coffee table with old magazines and straw wrappers, and start creating a “lewk” that’s more your style, it’s time to invest in a coffee table book. Sometimes pricey, these are not the tomes you curl up with in your cozy chair. They’re often hefty, artistic and fun and, if chosen correctly, a true representation of your own sense of style and interests.

Work and Play in Italy

Once business concludes, a world of wonder awaits in many of Italy’s incredible cities.
