Lockdown is over, Summer begins!

Lockdown… Lockdown! LOCKDOWN! The repetitive mantra that has invaded all our lives for the past year. The anxiety and the dread of hearing those words being launched is enough to make anyone go from living their best life to just existing.

The hope for the summer was slowly fading. The optimistic internal monologues ‘When we are out of this lockdown, I’m going to do this…’, ‘ I can’t wait to be able to do this again’ was gradually reducing to just four words; ‘When will it end?’…

With everything being opened back up and another lockdown seeming to no longer be on the horizon, its time to get life back on track. The opportunities still await!

So, are you going to enjoy summer this year? Or is the bed going to engulf you in its comfort?

The summer is always filled with amazing activities. Here are some activities to do while on your summer holidays this year. We have collated a unique bucked list that any adventurer would love to complete.
