I’ve started running in short sleeves. And the sun is finally out and warm ish on a regular basis! Everyone tells me to keep my expectations for a British Summer low, but when it’s nice out, it has been really nice. It’s light out until almost 9, and the days are still getting longer. I ate ice cream on the beach over the weekend. My expectations are staying high. 🙂
We’ve got visitors and trips to look forward to over the next few months, Amsterdam, Wales, Edinburgh and (most recently booked) Munich! Still trying to work out another long weekend or two for the summer. Somewhere we can enjoy the summer weather without being mobbed by everyone else doing the same thing. Half the problem is that there are so many options trying to choose gets overwhelming.
I’m excited to travel back to America in June as well! Seeing friends get married, and partying it up at the wedding are things I’m definitely looking forward to. This is the longest I’ve ever been out of the U.S. (6 months since I last went home in dec/jan) so I’m hoping it will be a bit refreshing. And warm! I’ll definitely be eating some burritos and drinking some IPAs as well.
I’ve started looking into a drivers license in the UK. The jury is still out on whether it’s worth the hassle, as some people say your year of using your US license refreshes every time you get a new entry stamp. Any insight into this? I’m trying to avoid drivers ed if at all possible haha. I took it about 10 years ago the first time around and it’s not something I’d like to repeat.
Aside from that, I’m looking forward to a summer of long days, long walks and runs and lots of beers out on the patio! We just bought a grill and are working on a bit of “landscaping” (planting flowers in pots and pulling weeds from between patio stones).
What are you looking forward to most this summer?
