Before you can embrace the summer by letting loose at summer festivals, painting your face, or paddling in the sea, there are few things you need to get sorted. Happily, you can find out precisely what these are, in detail in my post below.
First of all, if you are anything like me you may well be in danger of forgetting to book off those all-important festival weekends or the weeks where you want to get away. Now, this is problematic if you work with others because it means they can end up taking those dates off instead and leaving you to hold down the fort.
What that means is that if you don’t want to be stuck behind a desk in the height of summer while others are rocking out at the main stage, or paddling in the ocean, it’s essential to get your holiday requests in as soon as possible.
In fact, even if you are self-employed, it’s still a smart idea to plan when you will take time off, so you know when to avoid taking on new clients and still make your deadlines.
Next, when it comes to summer fun, it’s crucial to think carefully about the places that you would like to explore this coming summer. Now, it may be that you want to rock the staycation and only travel within the UK, something that is actually pretty easy to do with so many festivals schedule over the summer season.
Alternatively, you may wish to head a little further afield to the continent, or even overseas to visit a city or a country that you haven’t had the charge to experience before.
Of course, no matter what your destination is it’s essential that you think about the practicalities including the cost, what the weather is likely to be like, and who you will go with before you book your tickets and accommodation. Otherwise, you could end up making things more complicated than they need to be.
Once you have your locations chosen it’s time to work out how you will get there. Of course, many summer trips will require air or ferry travel, but if you are planning on driving to your destination, it is vital to be sure that your vehicle will be able to handle the trip.
Happily, there are things like these Drive Vauxhall Special Offers available for the summer that will provide you will a 29 point check for just £29. They will even throw in a special treat like an afternoon tea for this price too, making it a real bargain.
Finally, before the summer fun can begin you need to make your sure, you are saving and putting enough money away to do what you want.
In fact, you can even set aside a certain amount of your wages each month by direct debit, as this will make it much easier to achieve your saving goals and enable you to have as much summer fun as possible.
