September 21st marks the first day of Fall. I love every season, as they each have their own unique qualities; however, Fall is one of my most favorite times of year (yes, it's football season). If you live in an area where there are lots of trees, then you will see the changing of the leaves; there is a crispness to the air, and then there are an abundance of delightful food smells that will begin to permeate the home such as - cinnamon, vanilla, cloves, and other wonderful baked good items.
Fall is also a great time to get exceptional rates on travel. School is back in session, so a lot of areas that were packed for the summer are now taking a deep breath and seeing a decline in their patronage, so to combat that, they decrease their rates or offer great promotional incentives. Also, this is the perfect time of year if you are Ireland bound, as it's less expensive, and while it may be rainy (as always) you can score some incredible rates for air and lodging, while enjoying a pint or two while you are there.
Kick back, relax and get away somewhere special during this wonderful time of year!
