After being cooped up all winter, you’re ready to shed a few layers, go outside, and play in the sunshine. Bonus points if you can find a café with outdoor seating. Here are four places to eat, drink, and, hopefully, be merry this spring.
Moldova: Drink familiar wines, like Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, before moving on to a dry Aligoté and a sweet Rkatsiteli outside of Chişinău.
Brussels: Explore Belgium’s most-underappreciated city—and sample mussels, waffles, and lots of chocolate along the way.
Tulum: Spend the day relaxing on a gorgeous beach or visiting the Mayan ruins before checking out the exciting restaurant scene on the southern end of Mexico’s Riviera Maya.
Franschhoek: Prefer autumn to spring? Head to one of South Africa’s picturesque wine regions to ride a wine tram, drink Syrah and Merlot, and eat dinner overlooking the vines.
