After living in Germany for 3 years, we have heard over and over about the vacation destination on an island in the Mediterranean Sea! We finally took the time to go, and April is the best time of year as far as we are concerned. It was barely above freezing when we drove to the airport, and it was in the low 70’s when we landed! There was still elbow room to be had on the streets, at the beach, and in the pedestrian areas, unlike the packed crowds of summer we heard about. It was humorous seeing locals wearing winter coats while tourists were in shorts and flip-flops.
