Places You'd Rather Be Right Now: Spring Edition
We have good news and bad news.
We’ll unload the bad news first: forecasters are predicting that the northern part of the United States may still have heavy winter storms on its doorstep this season. While bursts of warmth are expected, for the most part, there are even more weeks of slipping and shivering to come. (Sorry for that icy slap in the face.)
Ready for the good news?
A freezing January wasn’t felt the world over. In fact, it was one of the warmer Januaries on record according to The New York Times (Atlantans and New Yorkers, we know that doesn’t seem plausible, but it’s true).
With sunny skies in other parts of the world, we asked Travel + Leisure’s Instagram followers to mentally pack their bags and share their dreams of blue waters, flowers in bloom, and anything that makes spring seem even semi-imaginable, and include the hashtag #TLTransportMe.
Whether it was a pink sunset in Paris, colorful cliff-side buildings in Cinque Terre, Italy, or a rainbow in Chilean Patagonia (remember it’s summer way down south), our ideal seasonal palette is anything but snowy white.
Share pictures on Instagram of where you’d rather be in the world, and include @TravelandLeisure and the hashtag #TLTransportMe—you may just make our next edition.
