2014 Vacation: UK Trip
May 28 – to – June 12, 2014.
2014 Vacation in UK: It was the best combination possible – visiting my only sibling, my sister, and her family combined with tourism!!! Stationed with my sister’s home in Wolverhampton, England; I travelled a lot around, which included a trip to my favorite city in the world : London. AS expected, it was always drizzling, sometimes pouring; and if I waited for sunshine, I might not have been able to see 80% of the places I saw. Few cities I covered were Birmingham, Liverpool, London and Stratford-Upon-Avon. Some other points-of-interest in this trip were, the first Cast Iron bridge in the world [a UNESCO World Heritage Site], Gladstone Pottery Museum, Lake Vyrnwy Nature Reserve and Yorkshire Sculpture Park. It takes much more time to organize the photos than taking them. Moreover, after vacation, its back to normal everyday working life, which leaves little time to organize the vacation images. But I will try…
