Oh March, oh March. How the time flies! I feel as though last we were still wearing out winter jacket on our bike, and now we’ve already had the first day to wear a skirt of the year. You won’t hear us complain though, we love spring! The past month we’ve shared a lot with you and if you missed it, at the end of the month you can read the ‘best of March’ in the most read articles here. Look at it as a list as, for example, new restaurants for inspiration for your next dinner date with your friend or lover, but also trend articles and inspiration for new events.
