On Saturday, my family and I will be leaving for our summer holiday to England. One week in London, one week in Hastings. As you can probably imagine, I can hardly wait!
I know summer is technically already in full swing, but I only just finished my last exam this week (yay!), so the time to enjoy summer begins now. It’s definitely one of my favourite seasons since it always feels like you can get so much done (the days are so long), there are so many fun outside activities and things to do to feel like a child again. So here are a few things to do in the summer of 2013.
+ Read five new books.
+ Master the perfect iced coffee.
+ Spend each waking hour outside.
+ Try a new recipe every week.
+ Shoot a whole film with my aunt’s old analogue camera.
+ Visit some kind of open-air theatre/movie.
Today I have the pleasure of presenting Courtney’s favourite piece for Everlasting Apparel. She writes the lovely blog Always Rooney where she shares amazing DIY projects (these shoes are one example for that!). She’s also a great follower of Christ and I always enjoy reading about her travels doing good work all around the world. You should definitely go over and check it out after reading this. Here’s what she has to say:
In my last travel post I focused a lot on day trips. Today, however, I want to talk about weekend getaways! And not only that — but how to make them both fun and inexpensive.
Once the destination is chosen the next thing to do is book your hotel stay! I swear by Airbnb.com and for the past two years I have not used anything else. It’s a great marketplace for people to list, discover, and book unique accommodations around the world. And more often than not, the cost is much less than booking a night at a hotel. I have stayed in some of the cutest little studios and apartments (including the villa above) all personally owned by individuals so you know you’ll get taken care of.
