I have always liked to travel during the “off peak” seasons such as Spring and Autumn. I specially like Autumn for the pallets of colours on display against a usually grey sky with a nice nip in the air. Perfect weather for long walks and photography and the drink at the end of the day (or during) tastes that much better. And for a trip to London and the Cotswolds it makes all the more sense. One can avoid the crowds and long queues at venues. Flights and Room rates tend to be cheaper than during the summer. So there’s a lot going for travel in Autumn and here’s some information on traveling to London and the Cotswolds during Autumn.Read More

I feel there is always something more I could do to capture the magnificent fall colours.Read More
