I can confirm.  Sometimes the weather is perfect like this day in 2018. Other times it rains for the whole trip.

Traveling during the shoulder or off season can bring discounts, fewer crowds, and bad weather.

BUT architecture photos at night can hide the clouds, the rain, and the crowds.

Throwback Thursday pic is from Iceland.

The weather doesn't always cooperate with my travel plans.  I make a choice to either curl up inside or explore. There is no wrong decision.
