Yosemite in the Spring

Yosemite in bloom truly awakens the senses. Experience the stunning springtime sights – blossoming wildflowers and waterfalls flowing at their peak, a perfect landscape for budding photographers. The forests become a natural studio for endless bird song while hibernating wildlife return from their winter slumber. Events in the area are in high demand, while rock climbers can assess the best line to climb up Yosemite’s iconic granite features.

THINGS TO REMEMBER WHEN VISITING YOSEMITE MARIPOSA COUNTY

 

We've just come back from a visit to Iceland so wanted to share our thoughts and Insider Tips with you!

Iceland is an unusual and fascinating country to visit at any time of the year. It’s emerald green in the summer and snowy in the winter, it has fascinating geology; stunning scenery; interesting cuisine; cool architecture and a tiny population of warm, welcoming people. Best of all (for us visiting from the UK), is that what used to be a really expensive destination is now relatively quite cheap, after the Icelandic economic crash of a few years ago.

Bruges in Belgium is an amazing place to visit: the historical architecture is stunning; there’s lots to do and great chocolate, beer and delicious Belgian food to enjoy. You can go at any time of the year: the weather is fine in the summer and cold and moody in the winter (you might get some snow if you’re lucky). In the summer it’s busy with hoards of tourists and day-trippers, taking photographs; riding round in horse-drawn buggies and browsing in the chocolate, lace and tapestry shops.
