Sunday Funday + Links


Another Sunday and another post for the latest news and links this week!

Well, Spring seems to have arrived (yet again, after some beautiful days in February tumblr_mdpf6druIu1qdlkyg.) Today we are reaching 25Cº (approximately 75F), so it definitely feels like staying outside – or at least going for a long walk. – I hope you are having also a beautiful weekend wherever you are, from what I have seen, it looks like sakura blooming has already started in Japan! I will probably upload my top favourite photos this upcoming week. Until then, have a great Sunday!
