Summer has always been about a sense of freedom — something warm and inviting or even confidence inspiring at times.
You give up on that long grown beard, head out into the wilderness, hit on new and attractive creations, soak in some Vitamin D, savor on some fresh fruit juices, swim like a dolphin and reconnect with old & new friends. You’ve been hibernating since long and its time to unleash your inner beast or unicorn, whichever suits you best!
Sure you can go outdoors, grab a couple of beers and chill with your friends, Maybe even be cross a few things out of your bucket list, but what happens when you run out of all the adventures you can do?
