Something I love to do is take long walks to insignificant places, whilst looking for new places and beautiful scenery. The only bad point about this is that it gets difficult once winter arrives. Therefore, I attempt to embrace the time in summer that I have to do this activity. So, I gather friends, or my iPod and walk, to anywhere. If I know where I'm going, I change direction.

2 Spend Time in Your Garden

The best thing about spending time in your garden is that you can read, listen to music, even dance around like a maniac and nobody will know what you're up to. You can invite friends over, have barbecues, bounce on a trampoline... the possibilities are endless... and it's FREE!

3 Go to the Beach!

There's such a warm atmosphere on the beach, once the sea air hits you, you will feel refreshed, happy and young again. Plus, everybody on the beach is so relaxed. It's most probably the only place that can inhabit over 3,000 people and stay in harmony. The beach is open to everyone; friends, family... all of your loved ones, and that is why it is great for summer.
