Travel Theme: Spring

I do the majority of my traveling in the spring and in the fall, when the flights are cheaper and weather isn’t too hot or too cold. Aside from Easter, there aren’t huge crowds of tourists either but I have faced the throngs of Easter tourism in the past. Booking holidays over Easter means you use two less vacation days! Advantages and disadvantages. Note to self, if away over Easter, avoid the tourist sites (i.e. last year’s visit to the Tower of London on Easter Sunday in the rain was ridiculously crowded in spite of the weather)

Here are some photos from my spring travels. While most of them are from the U.K., I have visited a few other places in the spring. The photos, however, tend to be of buildings or if there are trees in the photos, there aren’t many leaves on them. They all get a bit same-y looking after awhile.

At the Castlerigg Stone Circle, near Keswick in the English Lake District.
