The sun is starting to appear in the sky, the kids are winding down towards the summer holidays and it’s really starting to feel a lot like summer! Here are the five things about the June Bank Holiday that Travel Republic love the most.
You know that bright thing in the sky? Well you may not remember this but in summer it actually releases heat! There really is no better feeling than when the sun is shining; no matter where you are it’s hard to have a bad time. Of course, when you have a long weekend you can dedicate even more time to being in the sun, soaking up the rays and basking in the warmth. There is even the argument that the sun is good for your health, vitamin D and endorphins are as good an excuse as any to escape to the sunshine.
Have you been feeling weighed down by your coat and many layers recently? Does having an umbrella as an essential everyday item dampen your spirit? Of course it does, as in summer it’s all about flip flops and shorts/skirts/dresses. Oh, how we long for the days when you can leave the house with just a few items on, enjoying the light breeze and lack of layers. Well now’s your chance!
The beach and the June Bank Holiday are ideal partners. Lying on the sand (or pebbles) and listening to the waves as you doze carefree in the sun is one of the best things you can do, ever. For the more active you can take part in water sports, or if you’re like me you can simply enjoy a good book and relax.
Picnics, BBQ’s or any alfresco dining make for the perfect June Bank Holiday weekend . There’s nothing more enjoyable than sitting outside and enjoying good food together. Whether you’re cooking in the garden or having a picnic in the park, food tastes 100% better in the sunshine.
Eating ice cream in winter doesn’t quite have the same effect does it? Ice cream is cool, refreshing and most importantly delicious so it’s ideal in summer. Enjoying an ice cream on a summer’s day is perfection and for some reason, guilt free when it’s hot (right?).
So, there are just a few reasons why we love the June Bank Holiday. If you have any more then why not tell us?
