The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and summer is in the air! While this may be great for those living in warmer climates, it can be a struggle for those suffering from the heat. Having said that, the warm temperatures can also be a boon for plant life, providing the perfect opportunity to go outside and get some fresh air.
If you’re seeking solace from the hot sun and want to take a stroll, you can’t go wrong with a hike in a forest or a city park. The scenery may not be as beautiful as that of a forest, but it can still be quite picturesque.
For nature lovers who want to spend some quality time in the great British countryside, there are plenty of options for walks and cycle rides available. If you’re feeling extra adventurous, you can even camp overnight in one of England’s famous National Parks.
The best way to stay cool this summer is by keeping hydrated, which is why we recommend you drink lots of water while out and about this summer. You should also consider investing in a pair of safety glasses to protect your eyes from the harmful UV rays of the sun. We know this may not be the most fashionable or glamorous of recommendations, but let’s face it – this summer, safety first!
Find Your Bliss And Stay Happy
If you’re not into the outdoors, there are plenty of other ways to stay cool this summer. If you don’t own any swimsuits yet, it’s time to buy a few pieces to keep the beach at the forefront of your mind. If you’re feeling bold enough, you could even go au natural by opting for a dress or skirt instead of a suit.
There are plenty of chic and trendy ways to stay cool this summer, and if you’re looking for inspiration, we’ve got you covered. Check out these lovely ladies as they show you how to keep cool as a cucumber even in the hottest conditions. And for those of you that can’t get enough of the beach, we’ve got some amazing news. It seems that the British government has approved a measure that will allow British citizens to travel to Europe for a week’s holiday without a visa. The new Brexit relaxation measures will come into effect from June 2020, which makes this the perfect excuse to visit a famous theme park such as Disneyland Paris or Universal Studios.
With all these ways to travel and visit Europe without having to apply for a visa, why not take a vacation and discover some of the most beautiful places in Europe? You can start by heading to Dublin and connecting there with the Eurostar train, which will take you the rest of the way to London. From England, you can continue your journey by ferry to the Isle of Man, and then take the bus or the train to travel to Glasgow. Once you’re in Scotland, there are an abundance of luxury hotels and B&Bs waiting to host you.
If you want to explore the Isle of Skye, which is located off the west coast of Scotland, you can grab the Bealach nan Laoghaire (Loch Lomond) from its base in Glasgow and continue by car or ferry to Portree. There you’ll find everything you need for a memorable vacation, including a cosy, air-conditioned cabin with a shared bathroom. You can also rent a cottage with pool access in a private residence.
If you prefer to stay in a large hotel, you can take the High Street to the south out of Glasgow. Shortly you’ll arrive at the beach, one of the most famous destinations in Europe. There are lots of luxurious beach resorts and hotels to choose from, most with indoor and outdoor pools.
Lay Down Your Burdens And Let Go
It’s no secret that the last year has been a difficult one for those living in the U.K. Whether you’re a farmer trying to negotiate the Brexit deal or an employee fighting for better working conditions, you’ve all been through a lot. This is especially true of those in manufacturing, who have seen their purchasing power diminish due to the fall in the value of the pound.
Now that there’s less stress in daily life, it’s a good time to reflect and look towards the future. If you’re one of the many that have been frustrated by the political process, why not consider moving to another country? There are plenty of places in Europe that you could settle down in, whether you want to remain in the U.K. or head elsewhere. Finding yourself a new home is a liberating experience and gives you the freedom to create a new life for yourself.
With all this talk of relocating, maybe it’s time for you to pack up and head for the hills. If you are feeling adventurous enough, why not try out a new way of life and live in a cabin in the woods? You’d be giving yourself the ultimate summer camp experience, and you may even make some new friends along the way.
Let The Sunlight In
Not only does the sun provide us with essential vitamin D, but it also helps to keep us warm. Instead of suffering in the heat, why not take advantage of this fact and let the sunlight in? There are plenty of ways you can help to let the sunshine in and provide yourself with some vitamin D. You could go for a swim in the pool or the sea, or even take a walk to help clear your head. The options are endless!
If you really want to take the walk of shame, you could lay down in the grass and let nature’s best sunblock work its magic. Don’t be afraid to indulge in a little bit of self-care, because after all, it’s what the summer is all about.
Don’t Forget Your Roots
Last but not least, let’s not forget about the country that gave us the English language and culture. Although it’s tempting to explore England’s magnificent culture and visit its famous museums and galleries, it’s important to remember where you came from. The English countryside has everything you need for a summer holiday, including open spaces where you can have a picnic and go for walks. If you visit Dover, you won’t forget the English Channel port in a hurry. Its white cliffs will draw you to them, and its lighthouse will light up the night sky.
What a beautiful way to spend a summer day – waking up in the wild, waking up to the sound of birdsong, waking up to the sun streaming through the window. We couldn’t ask for a more perfect way to begin our day, could we?
