Mike | Hiking Addict | WHEN to TRAVEL Team

‘As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to explore every corner of this planet’

I’m a travel fanatic. Well, that doesn’t come as a surprise, right? It gets better: I’m also a best-time-to-visit and special destination expert. Together with my teammates, we have a combined travel experience of almost 100 years!

I love traveling but not that far most of the time. The United States is an exception. I’m an avid hiker and usually like to feel some ground beneath me. Nevertheless, I tried snorkeling recently. My favorite destinations are the United States and many European Countries.

When I’m not writing travel guides, I often watch the latest Netflix series and play the piano … grade 0.5 I guess 😉 Originally I wanted to become a filmmaker.

My current favorite travel destinations are Lofoten Islands and Acadia National Park

My teammates and I traveled around the world and talked to hundreds of locals and destination experts so far. That means we can offer you detailed insights about each place. Especially details about the difference for each month of the year.

Our season and monthly travel guides for places around the world belong to the best out there. Regardless of the region, the destination, or what you’d like to experience: Hiking, sightseeing, wildlife viewing, photographing …. We got you covered!

Articles written by my expert travel team and me are from the user WHEN to TRAVEL.
Travel Month Expert

Articles about specific travel months for many destinations are from the Travel Month Expert team, which consists of our members who live in the respective states or cities. Those articles are also 100% accurate as they are written by someone who lives in the area he writes about.

‘California is an unbelievable state!’

For over 10 years, I have trekked across most of California’s 16 climate zones. The wilderness is my second home when I’m not exploring greater Los Angeles.

That’s me in March 2021. I’m hiking the Hermit Trail in Grand Canyon National Park in March.

All my articles are also published under the WHEN to TRAVEL or the Travel Month Expert user account. My latest article is about the best California itineraries.

One of my favorite hikes is the John Muir Trail (or “Nüümü Poyo” in the Paiute language). I love exploring California, the West Coast, and North America.

Andy | Animal Expert | WHEN to TRAVEL Team

‘Animals are the bridge between us and the beauty of all that is natural …’

I am from Ireland, and when I was little, my father took me on safaris in Africa, to national parks all over the world, and to the best whale-watching regions he knew. I enjoyed my time in these places so much that I wanted to do something with animals as a profession. That’s why I studied zoology.

I have a passion for animals but also for the environment and what’s happening around us. That’s why I write articles about animals, nature, and everything, which is so exciting when you visit mesmerizing national parks, rugged wilderness, or ‘just’ a big zoo.

If you see an article on this site about wildlife, zoo, whale and dolphin watching, I probably wrote it or added some paragraphs at least. All my articles are also published under the WHEN to TRAVEL user account. We always work as a team here at Any TRAVEL Tips.


Jesse | Attractions & Cities | WHEN to TRAVEL Team

‘Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer’

I grew up in Germany, and I love city trips. Gathering new impressions, contact with different cultures and ways of life. Every city is different and has its own flair. Every year I try to visit at least one new city and h bring home beautiful and intriguing impressions.

I also like to get to know the country and its people, discover local peculiarities, try out new activities, attend exclusive events, look at impressive city skylines, endless beautiful natural landscapes, listen to the waves of the sea, try out fine local specialties in a town and stay in upscale hotels.

New York City

When I travel, it’s always with a trolley, handbag, and a good portion of matching clothes in the suitcase. On the road, it has to be comfortable and uncomplicated for me.  Nevertheless, I do not only scratch the surface when I am on the road. It is important to me to track down the extraordinary charm of a place and share it with my readers.

Like my teammates, my articles are published under the user account WHEN to Travel.

My current favorite city is Melbourne 


San Francisco
