I know the calendar may have officially turned to spring late last week, but where I live we’re still waiting for it to properly arrive. While we patiently wait for the arrival of warmer weather and some sunshine, we can dream about visiting other places for a springtime adventure. And to help us out with that, National Geographic has put together a list of 14 amazing trips for the season ahead.
Amongst the destinations that Nat Geo recommends are Japan, where the cherry blossoms are in full blooms, and the Upper Amazon in Peru, where temperatures remain fairly constant all year round.
The article also suggests a journey to the East Coast of Sri Lanka or Morocco, where the weather is a bit cooler this time of year. But for those who aren’t ready to give up on winter completely yet, Svalbard in northern Norway is on offer, allowing travelers to experience the Midnight Sun and quite possibly even spot some polar bears.
I’ll leave the rest of the list for you to discover, but needless to say each entry offers a short overview of what Spring is a good time to go and what to expect when you get there. This being National Geographic, there are plenty of great photos too and some suggested destinations that you might not have thought of yourself, both foreign and domestic.
If you’re looking for a way to shake off the cold grip of winter, and bring a bit of adventure back into your life, than you’ll want to have a look at the list. Check it on in its entirety here.
