Spring has arrived in Paris

The Spring is officially here! I have been walking for nearly three miles around Montmartre, trying to get a seat outdoors to have a glass of rosé. I thought I had a great idea to have a drink outside on one of the cafe terraces.  Apparently so did everyone else.

Everybody was out, enjoying the very warm weather and the sun. Sitting in cafes is a year-round activity in Paris but when the weather improves, the wine/coffee/Perrier sipping crowd moves outdoors. And then there is a “first come, first served” situation.

Paris is a beautiful city during any season, but when spring comes, it becomes truly outstanding. As nature awakes, the people also seem more awake and happy and relaxed. Or is it just me?

I am very happy the spring has finally arrived. For the first time in years, I had a winter blues. I guess that the gray Parisian winter sky was to blame for it. But now I am getting happier and more optimistic as I soak up the warm Spring sun …
