But there are other brilliant seasonal experiences just waiting to be discovered. From a rain-soaked London, Lucy and James explore four alternative Christmas destinations.

Episode 2 - Spring before Summer
Sometimes our dream destinations can be tricky to explore in the height of summer – whether that’s down to high temperatures, overcrowding or other factors. Lucy and James discover four bucket-list worthy places ideal for a spring, rather than summer, vacation. James also talks with New York-based travel writer and DK marketeer Lauren Paley about her solo adventure to Petra.
Episode 3 - Alternatives to beach breaks
While there’s always a place in our hearts for a fly and flop, more and more of us are looking for summertime outdoor adventures – whether that be hiking, cycling or generally getting back to nature. From horse-riding in Corsica to hiking the Salkantay Trail in Peru , here are four of our favourite summer trips. Lucy and James also catch up with travel editor Elspeth Beidas about her safari adventures.
Episode 4. Different fall foliage
When we think of fall foliage, we automatically think about New England and its glorious autumnal finery. But have you ever considered watching the season change in Hawaii? Or Burgundy?
