Ha en underbar sommar!
//Summer is fast approaching and it feels like everyone is planning their vacation. If you then not had time to save up something for the holidays, is there still an opportunity to celebrate the holiday at a low price, or even get away for free?
Here are my top holiday tips on how to get a wonderful summer for a small fee:
Camp! You may not initially think it’s something for you, but it’s actually a really nice way to get close to nature and spend time with family and friends or by yourself. What do you need? Tents, sleeping bags, sleeping mats, matches, camping stove, cup, flashlight, insect repellent. Check online, Ebay or on social media like Facebook, sometimes people give things away to almost or no cost at all if you do not have yourself. Borrow a book from the library and you are good to go.
Compete in contests! Many free online contests give away trips and the chance is probably much bigger than winning the lottery. Who knows, maybe it is you who wins a cottage holiday. Often you just need to answer a question, and write a statement. (But check the conditions so it is serious.)
Biking! Why not take the opportunity to explore Sweden and your neighborhood by bike? You get the opportunity to see places you’ve never had any idea there even existed though you may have lived in a town or village in your entire life. Let your curiosity lead you.
Read online! Check local tourist office or the Internet for gems, maybe there are some wonderful place, you did not know about, a lake, a park or a farm closer than you think. Many activities are free in the summer, such as festivals, standup comedy and museum etc.
Visit friends. Perhaps you finally have time to spend time with those friends who live a little further away and you therefore too rarely has time to meet. Go visit them or invite people home a few days.
Go fishing! Try your luck by fishing! Sounds great to get the opportunity to dine on freshly caught grilled fish at night? (But do not forget the fishing permit, read online and learn.)
Play! Geocaching, play boules or try other games. The imagination is the limit.
Hike! Sweden is incredibly beautiful and on foot to get to know the smells and become one with nature. Why not take a refreshing evening swim and enjoy the sunset with a bowl of freshly picked blueberries.
Have a wonderful summer!
