7-Step Solution to a Summer Microadventure

1. Get out of town
(When the boy in the bubble needs to escape)

2. Refresh
(Although I’mm sure some ad recently made me want to drink cider…)

3. Connect (by Disconnecting)
(Dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free)

4. Relax
(And that smell of sweet perfume comes drifting through the cool night air)

5. Sleep

6. Swim
(These are the days of miracle and wonder)
[Pretty chuffed with this self-timer jump-snap which I nailed on the first attempt!]

7. Breakfast
(You don’t meet nice girls in coffee shops)

Have you made time to get out this summer?
These photos came from a 10-hour round trip: surely we can all find the time for that? (And if you can’t, then you probably need to!)

Please share this post with any friend you’d like to take out for their first overnight microadventure.
