Most of us can agree that, in general, winter sucks. For those of us who live in locations with subzero temperatures and a significant accumulation of snow well into March, the season has little to offer. We here at Paste try to make the most of it. We’ve covered the positive aspects of the season, like cold-weather festivals, destinations to help you warm up and idyllic winter escapes. And yet, when those first signs of spring start to appear, we would be lying if we said we weren’t rejoicing. This week’s Bucket List brings you one of the most beautiful indications that spring is finally here. From Brooklyn to Bonn, these are eight destinations for cherry blossom spotting around the world.
