Scooters, from another era? You would be amazed at the number in London, let alone that there are clubs regrouping fans. 300 of those met under the London Eye last Saturday. Passers-by really felt nostalgic and admired longingly the shiny chromes, the amazing numbers of lights and rearview mirrors, the adorable pastel colours… Oh, it felt like Italy for a little while!
What sound represents spring the best to you? Birds chirping happily? I would say the ice-cream van returning to the neighbourhood. Right after school or on clue for dessert. This cheerful music that stays in you head the whole evening. Children rushing to their parents (well, the one with a wallet nearby), then to the ice-creams. Flake, sirup or both, that is the question! Kids laughing. Even if it is only 09 degrees outside. I once saw the ice-cream van serving treats as it started snowing. Spring is weather resistant my friends. Looking for ideas to put sunshine in the week-end? Scroll down!

Out of the ordinary:
