Spring is dawning upon us and it’s safe to say we are all anticipating the blooming of beautiful flowers and the smell of fresh grass that comes in abundance with the season. It’s the start of a new season and in some ways, it signifies the start of a new beginning. Some cultures around the world choose to celebrate New Year’s on the 1st day of Spring instead of the 1st of January.
For example, Iranians celebrate Nowruz as a symbol of a New Year. It defines the harvest festival and the month of food and life’s beauty. Hindus, on the other hand, celebrate Ponggal, which is the New Year’s Day for all Hindu believers. With various festivals celebrating their New Year in the start of spring, it excites us to travel and go around the world enjoy the festivities the world has to offer.
So, where are some places can you go? Below we provide a comprehensive list of four incredible places to ring in the new year with style and all of the beauty and warm weather that comes with the spring season.
1. Cartagena, Columbia
Cartagena is a Columbian city famous for its old history and beautiful culture. Columbians, in general, are known for their bright culture and their lively attitude. Cartegena’s Old Town has been made one of the UNESCO Heritage sites due to its unique architecture. Surrounded by cobbled alleys, balconies covered with bougainvillea, and churches that would take your breath away, it’s a rich source of beauty and culture.
Cartagena is a place where you leave all your touristic habits behind, as well as your typical way of traveling. In this place, you are inclined to indulge in relaxation and enjoying the calm sun and beautiful flowers. Strolling down the Old Town and breathing the culture of the Columbians, you’ll find yourself open to change and motivated for the whole year.
If you want to feel like a true Cartagenos, then head to Bocagrande, the Cartagena’s Miami Beach, to sip a fine cup of coffee and enjoy the view.
You won’t regret it.
2. Canmore and Banff, Alberta
Banff and Canmore are the perfect Yin and Yang. Banff is a place where all adrenaline-seekers would enjoy. It’s surrounded by mountains and it’s famous National Park. In the spring, it’s perfect weather for camping, hiking, as well as climbing. The National Park is surrounded by limestones and these limestones are perfect for climbers to experiment, as well as for thrill-seekers trying to camp and discover nature’s magic.
Canmore, on the other hand, is the complete contrast of Banff. It used to be a coal-mining town and is surrounded by its versatile history as well as its unique people. After tons of articles highlighting Canmore as the city of serenity and secrets, Canmore has become the center for people who are looking forward to escaping the adrenaline of Banff.
Canada is perfect in any season but to enjoy the true beauty of nature, nothing beats Canada in the spring.
3. Osaka, Japan
Japan in my personal point of view is the land of paradise, a land of beauty, and a land of tradition. From the hidden tattoo shops to the bath houses, Japan has taken life to two major extremes. Although many may critique their discipline, in my personal point of view, these disciplines are what has kept Japan’s strong culture and tradition alive.
Osaka is a part of Japan that entices people with its beauty. Spring is the start of the Sakura (cherry blossoms) season and the cherry blossoms are a famous symbol of Japan. Osaka is the biggest host, from it’s delicious Mochi Balls to its Sakura Sake and it’s a time of celebration in Japan.
The only months you can catch the blooming of the Sakura trees would be in the period of March to April. So if you’re planning a travel trip to Japan, then spring would be the best time to do so.
4. Seville, Spain
Spanish food and Spanish culture have enticed the world, from their nationalistic point of view towards their food culture to their beautiful music and language, Spain has never failed to surprise the world. Spain is a place where you would enjoy both a touristic perspective of travel as well as a serene perspective.
Seville, on the other hand, is a land with its doors leading to the past, where history lives and the culture persists. Known as the Lucky Devils, they’re a land that has adapted for centuries. You can find the Roman influence as well as the Greek myths surrounding the beautiful city.
In the spring, you will find the sun calming and the nature around it relaxing. Spanish people prefer taking on a relaxed approach towards life so be sure to embrace it.
In conclusion, spring is a great time to travel, so take your chances and enjoy the cultures of spring in countries you’ve never been to.
