England & Scotland in Photos

This is a Hipmunk post from Jodi Ettenberg of Legal Nomads

After months of travel through Asia, the Middle East and North Africa, I spent the last few months in England with my brother and his friends. It was great to relax and enjoy the holidays with family, but it also gave a perspective of the country that I didn’t have before. There’s something offputting about returning to a comfortable place after being abroad, but it is also wonderful to see it in a different light.

Here are some photos from my winter months in the UK.
