The summer is here and you need to take advantage of it. Through winters and storms you’re patiently waiting for these warm and adventurous months, and now, they’re finally here. Now the question is: what are you going to do about it? Are you going to settle for average and stay in your comfort zone? Or you’re going to find time and motivation to do some amazing things with your loved one and create everlasting memories?
Please read on, to learn about best summertime activities you can take advantage of with your partner.
The first thing you need to do is to plan your time in advance. Great opportunities will not just fall on your lap. But these days you are fortunate: you have the web and your smartphone will serve you as a guide to some fantastic summertime treats. Ask your partner about what excites them and get on with it!
The first thing to do is to check your events page on Facebook. There are dozens of them – including concerts, pool parties, brunches in the park and getting that barbecue going. Right now you can even buy tickets straight through Facebook so there are no more excuses for staying on your sofa, eating chips and binge watching the next season of House of Cards (which actually isn’t such a bad idea).
Let’s take more advantage of technology. There is a site called Meetup.com and if you’re living in a big city, this can be a life-saver for you and your partner. The app offers multiple opportunities to meet people, hang around, participate in exciting sports activities, go boating, go hiking – you name it, they have it! So why don’t you download the app and just give it a try? Find your favorite meeting, take your partner by hand and you’re on to the next summertime adventure.
And then, use your creativity. I’m sure there are multiple opportunities around you, no matter where you live. Just search for “Day trips from – your city” and often you’ll be amazed by the amount of adventures waiting for you. Maybe there’s a miracle of nature near to you just waiting to be discovered? Lakes, mountains, waterfalls, sea, ocean, secluded beaches, amazing forests, tiny quaint villages, traditional sports and competitions, film festivals, folk festivals and concerts. All these activities sprout like mushrooms especially during the summer.
You don’t want to miss out on them and wait through the cold seasons to be able to make your next move. A few sites you can use to create your next adventure are: Trip Advisor, Lonely Planet or Atlas Obscura.
And since we’re talking about you and your partner, please don’t forget about romantic activities that will make the summer unforgettable. How about booking a table at restaurant with a nice view, going to a pool party (and kissing in the pool), having a nice day at the spa, or just hanging around a new café in the morning? The key here is novelty. New activities are the spice of life and the worst thing you can do in your relationship is to fall into a routine. Right now travelling is becoming more affordable so remember to take advantage of any cheap flights available for you.
