EVERYONE is in a sunny state of mind as summer is in full swing. While there are those who like to spend their summer at a leisurely pace, there are also a good number of people who prefer it action-packed. However you choose to seize the season, we can all agree that summer means staycations, vacations, beach trips, outdoor fun, and more laid-back times with loved ones. Still haven’t figured out what you want to do in the next couple of months? Maybe these readers can give you some ideas.

“Summer is for family bonding. My family and I usually schedule a three-week trip during summer. However this year is quite different as I will be spending most of my time preparing for the 2018 bar exams in November. Though there were no plans on going on a trip, luckily my dad had a scheduled business trip in Japan last March and we were able to sneak in some last minute family bonding before I will start my review in Manila.”

“Summer is always fun and exciting for me. As a fashion designer, I’m excited to express my ideas in my upcoming collection. I’ll be spending most of my weekends at the beach here in Cebu shooting my pieces.”

“I kicked off the summer in Singapore with Oasia Novena Hotel and Klook. After that, I’m exploring our own backyard. In Visayas, I’ll go island hopping in Cebu, party at Plus63 in Mövenpick, and enjoy the festivities in Bohol. In Mindanao, I can’t wait to party at Estivale and see what Dapitan has to offer specifically Dakak Park and Beach Resort. In Luzon, I heard Batangas is a good destination so I’m checking out Eagle Point Resort and start from there. There’s literally a lot of activities to do in the Philippines during summer which I’m sure will be a ton of fun!”

“I’m definitely going on a solo trip for the second time around. It’s actually my clever way of knowing myself more and at the same time, my way of rewarding myself for working hard and accomplishing some of my long term goals. Another plan would be spending more time with my family and friends. Perhaps this will be my last year here since I’ll be leaving for career advancement in the States.”

“For my summer 2018, I will be spending more time with family and friends. We’re planning to enjoy a staycation at Nordtropic Resort then go island hopping the following day. My family and I are also going to Kuala Lumpur for my sister’s yearly checkup. During our stay in Malaysia, we intend to do side trips and take advantage of the extra time to discover and learn more about the country.”
