The arrival of spring has us going up, up and away
There's no need for scarves and mittens with weather like this.
The famous Canadian poet and novelist Margaret Atwood once said: "In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt." Which is basically her way of telling us to get outside and enjoy the warm weather.
With the cold winter nights now behind us, and the first day of spring now here, we're taking her advice and headed out on some breathtaking hikes and sunset strolls along the beach. In the photo above, the beautiful day provided the perfect opportunity to go on a hot air balloon ride over a field of colorful buttercups in the Mediterranean country of Israel.
