It's finally spring! A great opportunity to get out of the winter lethargy with a little trip. We have made a selection full of pep's with spring destinations of choice

Where to go in spring to recharge your batteries in the sun?

Head for Malta! Only 3 hours flight from Paris, it is already almost summer on this pearl of the Mediterranean with a beautiful sun. And in spring, the island of Malta comes alive more than ever. The Holy Week, which precedes Easter, is punctuated by very important religious and traditional events in Malta. On Thursday night, the Maltese spend most of the night visiting churches. According to tradition, they must visit seven churches before Friday. On Good Friday, you can also attend the beautiful procession of statues that leaves from the Ta'Giezu church in Valletta

Another sunny destination: the Turkish Riviera! Without waiting for summer you can already start sunbathing on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey. The prices of hotels and restaurants are very affordable in this season, including in the luxury resorts in all-inclusive formula. And, above all, you can already swim in most of the seaside resorts of the region, the water is barely cooler than in August. To you the beaches of Bodrum with turquoise waters....

Not far from Turkey, Greece is another almost summery destination in spring because of its mild temperatures. But we especially recommend the Ionian islands during Easter! Easter gives indeed place to great celebrations in these islands: fanfares in the streets, walks in the mountains decorated with flowers, religious services... But it is in Corfu that these celebrations are the most impressive with not less than 19 fanfares. And like every year, according to tradition, painted jugs are thrown from balconies on the main square of Corfu. And the broken jugs bring good luck, a nice vacation souvenir!

Where to go in spring to get a breath of fresh air?

To fill up with oxygen in spring, we recommend the Portuguese island of Madeira. The point of Sao Lourenço offers breathtakingly beautiful landscapes, with its orange-colored rocks contrasting the deep blue ocean. To get the most out of your trip, make a stop at the maritime cape of Cabo Girao perched at 580 meters above sea level, where you will be able to observe the ocean under your feet thanks to a window on which you will walk... Finally, don't miss the famous flower festival in Funchal in May! The streets of the capital are then the scene of a magnificent parade of flowered floats. Magic..

Egypt is another destination of choice in spring! Beyond the visit of the mythical pyramids, we advise you a cruise on the Nile because the weather is ideal in spring. The ideal is to embark on the Steam Ship Sudan, a steamboat built in the 19th century. It is an original experience that really gives the feeling of going back in time. For the record, it was during a cruise on the Steam Ship Sudan that Agatha Christie got the idea for her novel Death on the Nile

Where to go in spring for a city trip with a change of scenery?

Go to Seville in Andalusia! To be done at Easter time. The Holy Week in Seville is famous all over the world. Nearly 50,000 people wear penitential garb to march in one of the 58 processions, while the "costaleros" (porters) carry the pasos (altars) on their backs. During these processions, which take place every day, one can hear the saetas, flamenco songs that the inhabitants sing a capella from their balconies. The night of Good Friday is the highlight of the week, when important religious statues such as the Jesus of the Great Work, the Macarena or the Christ of the Gypsies can be seen

For a change of scenery, head to Bangkok, Thailand for the celebration of the Buddhist New Year, Songkran, from April 13 to 15. The day before, on April 12, everyone sprays water in the streets. Laughter guaranteed! According to ancient beliefs, these giant water fights ward off bad luck. It is especially in Chiang Mai and Phra Praokong, in the suburbs of Bangkok, that the festival is in full swing even though it is celebrated all over Thailand
