I breathed a sigh of relief a few nights ago when I noticed it was still light at 5 o’clock. As much as I enjoy cosy evenings in, layering up in knitwear and all sorts of other things that come with the winter weather, I do love it when the sun starts to shine again. And call me romantic, but there’s just something about that first time you see blossom on the trees or buds popping out of the grass.
So what more perfect way to celebrate spring than to get away for a few days and visit somewhere new? Spring is a great time to travel, tickets are often cheaper, crowds are often smaller, and in hotter countries, you get this lovely balmy weather that makes it much easier to sight-see and explore. Here are a few of my favourite spring destinations.
