Spring in England

This is a Hipmunk post from Jodi Ettenberg of Legal Nomads.

What better time to visit England than in the spring? With trees budding and green grass and – finally! – some sun, it’s a perfect chance to explore what the country has to offer, without the cold. Some photos from recent days in Brighton, London and the Cotswolds.

Free Things to Do in Paris (via @CameronCRussell)

Writer Taras Grescoe discovers “the art of being authentically Parisian—the art, that is, of tasting, touching, buying, and eating with an extra touch of finesse” in the March 2008 issue of National Geographic Traveler. And even though traipsing around pricey Paris might sound like serious damage to your wallet, not to mention your holiday joie de vivre, that’s only if you don’t know where to look (and when to go). Indulge in some of the City of Light’s sweetest luxuries—gratuit—from hidden nooks of authenticity to world-class museums and sights.


Turns out there are a lot of free things to do in Paris. We’ve already covered some of our favorite New York Hotspots and 5 Ways to Travel for Free in Cool US Cities, but leave it to National Geographic (and friend of hipmunk, Cameron Russell) to come through with this guide for this romantic European capital – click here and be sure to bookmark it for later!
