Top 10 things to do in Summer 2015

Well since the year seems to be flying past it seems like we should have already planned for the summer of 2015 but nevertheless, we have put together quite a few things you may want to do this summer. Some are ridiculously crazy but that shouldn’t stop you from trying. If anything, your aim should be to make this summer of 2015 better than that of previous years and to make this year a stepping stone for summer 2016. There’s something for everyone in this list of our Top 10 things to do in Summer 2015; for those on a smaller budget, those with cash to spend, the shy and the down for anything type of people.

1. Zorb Football

Zorb Football is football but on a whole new level! It’s a unique experience which is fast, fun and definitely full of laughs. If you’re looking to have fun, exercise, or plan a stag-do then Zorb Football is the one for you and your friends this year.

You strap yourselves into your own one man body Zorb and you’re split into different teams. Instead of tackling, you ‘barge’ your way through to win the ball while seeing them fly far away from you. When you’re in control of the ball, after you’ve stopped laughing, you dribble with the ball and smash it past the goalie, but be careful, a barge from the opponent is only a Zorb awayyy. Groupon have some great Zorb Football Packages for you and your friends this summer

2. Climb a Mountain

While this may not be easy (depending on the mountain you choose), it surely is one that you should consider. After all, how many of your friends have successfully climbed a mountain? Just make sure you do extensive research on whatever mountain you may want to climb, you need to know at least the dangers of that mountain, local rescue numbers and what’s the fastest time the mountain has been climbed if you’re looking to break some records this year.

Top 10 things to do in Summer 2015 climb a mountain

While climbing a mountain isn’t the easiest thing to do, it sure is a great one to accomplish. Now while you may not be able to conquer Mount Everest just like that, you can build your way up. The top 5 highest mountains in the world:

  1. Mount Everest – 8,848m
  2. K2 – 8,611m
  3. Kangchenjunga – 8,568m
  4. Lhotse – 8,516m
  5. Makalu – 8,481m

And the world’s smallest mountain, if that’s where you want to start is…

  1. Mount Wycheproof – 43m

So maybe climbing a mountain wasn’t on your to-do list for the next 50 years, we certainly think you should give it a try.

3. Visit Guernsey

You may not have even heard of the place (hopefully you have) but Guernsey certainly is one for the list this year. With it hosting Britain’s cleanest beach, Vazon Bay and the world’s smallest chapel, the Little Chapel, there isn’t a shortage of things to do in Guernsey. Situated just a few hours from the UK, Guernsey is also known for its romantic getaways ;). Take your partner away for a weekend and make it a weekend to remember.

4.Family Holiday

Family holidays are a classic for the Summer Holidays. After months of stress, family holidays are a great way to relieve you of any stress and get you relaxed. Get the family together and jet off to the other side of the world ready to experience something new. If you haven’t taken the kids to Disney Land Paris yet, take them this year, they’ll love it! If you can’t be bothered to go through the hassle of searching for holidays, Skyscanner are amazing, they search for cheap flights, hotels & car hire from more providers than anyone else giving you the best deals directly. We use them all the time to check when it is the cheapest time of the year to travel with their price comparison feature.

5 Benefits of taking a family holiday:

  1. You get to spend quality time with them – Working full time can be very time consuming, you come home late and you are very tired. A holiday will allow you to spend as much time with your family as you want.
  1. Release the stress – We often keep things bottled up until we have had enough. A family holiday is a great way to let go of your stress and learn more about your family members.
  1. Create lasting memories – Some of our favourite memories with our family come from times when we are all together so get the whole family on board and fly away this summer.
  1. Experience new things together – When exploring a country none of you have been to, this can be very exciting. You can learn new cultures together while embracing a different atmosphere and who better to be with than the closest people to you?
  1. Become Stronger – Research has shown that families that spend more time together are strong families. A divided house can’t really stand so unite together and take time to rebuild connections.

If you’re afraid of planes and want to keep it local, there are still many options for you to pick from like:

Butlins | LEGOLAND | Thorpe Park | Alton Towers | Pontins

 

5. Eiffel Tower Selfie

You’re probably thinking wait what?? But think about it, how crazy would it be to get a selfie from the top of the Eiffel tower or from the bottom if you’re afraid of heights. Getting to France nowadays is no longer hard, you have many options; Eurostar, iD Bus, EasyJet… You can visit SkyScanner to get the best prices from the majority of the airlines for the times that suit you best. See, it wasn’t a bad idea after all.

7. Book a Spa Day

Book a spa day for either just yourself or take a friend with you to get all that stress off your back. Stress affects millions of people each year and the effects it has on our bodies can be detrimental. We become easily frustrated, can lose our temper and can make us very sick. For this reason, we think you should add a spa day to your list of things to do this summer. Working all year round to not get a break can cause serious stress but a spa day can be one of many ways to relieve stress on the body.

With all that's going on in our lives and the world, reducing stress is important, and it's a factor in heart health ~ Andie MacDowell

9. The Holi Festival

~ Rasida from Hello Rasida gives us her 1 thing to do this summer:

A great thing to do in summer is to be outside! Whether that is spending time in your garden or going abroad! One of my favourite things to do is go to festivals. The recent festival I visited was in London called the Holi Festival and it was amazing. The festival of colour and love is a fun and colourful experience. Everyone wears white for obvious reasons. You are given a few packs of different colours to throw at each other whilst dancing or not if you prefer. There is also a live singer and DJ so you can dance away. You don’t have to stay thirsty or hungry as there are many food stalls and a bar plus free drinks from certain companies. Have a colourful summer!

 

10. Mystical Istanbul

~Mother in London suggests for you to:

Take a trip to mystical Istanbul, where East meets West. Cross the beautiful blue Bosphorous strait from Asia to Europe. Head to the historic Sultan Ahmet region and visit the Hurrem Sultan Turkish Bath dating back to 1556. This is the actual Turkish Bath used by Hurrem Sultan (Roxelana) wife of Suleiman the Magnificent, who was a prominent monarch of 16th Century Europe. So if you want to bathe like a Sultan, be washed, scrubbed and pampered, visit Istanbul and head here. www.ayasofyahamami.com
