Even though dog days may get to us, one is filled with a unique energy during summer. The abundance of Vitamin D, the long and beautiful days full of sunshine, magnificent social events and the delicious food inject new energy into our lives. If you are also a true fan of summer, what we are about to tell you will add to your longing for the summer!
“O Sun, Where Art Thou?!”
We all complain about the sun in summer, we all know it. But during long winter months when we wake up to a dark day and the sun plays hard to get we yearn for those days illuminated by the bright rays of sunshine. And in summer, we bask in the sun flocking to the parks and meadows. We enjoy the sun to the fullest.
There is a thing called “summer fruits!”
There is so much about the summer that makes it adorable but undoubtedly summer fruits are what makes it especially lovable. And what are they? Grapes, sour cherries, cherries, strawberries, peaches, apricots, plums, melons and watermelons! Just imagine! The heat is killing you and you want to refresh, so you go ahead and rustle up a fruit salad from the melons and watermelons you have been keeping in the fridge. And you tuck into it. So delicious!
Warm and pleasant summer evenings spent with friends and the family
We have all had summer evenings we cannot forget about. A warm wind blows, but it’s hot. People sit on chairs in their balconies. A table is set with friends and family gathered around it. The kettle is put on, board games are brought out, and ice cream and watermelons are served. It is during such nights that the warmest conversations are had.
Live carefree with summer songs!
During the whole winter we listened to indie rock, alternative rock, acoustic performances and romantic winter songs and we drowned in the gloom of winter. Imagine those hit songs which get you carried away by their rhythm no matter what your music taste is. We need a bit of that, don’t we?
No more wearing layers of thick clothes and coming down with diseases!
During winter, we all get fed up with getting dressed like a “cabbage” so to say. We tend to rug up when it gets cold rendering us almost immobile. Quite unlike summer months! No more rugging up! You can finally adopt a more casual and carefree attitude to dressing.
No more rain and mud!
No more qualms about water entering your shoes, getting your trouser cuffs wet, traffic jams, getting cold or long ruminations on whether you should take your umbrella with you. There’s the sunshine, and there are shady spots as an alternative. In summer, all natural events take place on the other side of the world while you bask in the sun on the beach!
The season for enjoying the seas and the pools!
One of the most beautiful things about summer is to enjoy the pools and the seas. Swimming for long hours, playing games in the pool and the sea, reading a book on the sunbed and smelling of sun lotion... What more could one ask for?
You have the freedom to go to cooler places in the middle of summer!
On the other hand, summer months offer another great benefit. For example, you do not get to find so many warm places in Turkey during winter months. Even if you do, you don’t get to enjoy the sea or wear light clothing. That is indeed not the case with summer months! Are you exhausted from heat? Simply travel to a spot with a higher altitude, and see if you can get your teeth chattering in the midst of summer!
More festivals and concerts than you can poke a stick at!
Indeed, festivals and concerts are among the first things that come to mind when one thinks of summer. Festivals and concerts are best enjoyed in this season. It’s a wonderful pleasure to listen to your favorite singer in a warm summer evening.
A variety of ice cream to choose from!
Ice cream is another fix symbol of summer. You pick one flavor leaving you to wonder whether you should also have tried the other flavors, too. You imagine going for the chocolate flavor next time while you are already sinking your teeth into whatever flavor you have chosen. And you are always bound to have people around you saying “That is not even made from actual milk, it is only milk powder” whilst you are eating your ice cream with relish.
