25 ways to find your wild this summer

We’ve been dreaming, plotting, planning and doing an indoor scream/hell yeah about getting back out there to do some of our favourite summer things. We’ve put together a list of our top 25 for you to check off.

Our summer bucket list

  1. Discover a new region. With less time to go abroad maybe plan multiple trips and find somewhere you wouldn’t normally consider
  2. Prepare the road trip playlist with exactly enough songs to get you there. Make sure it’s packed with the right amount of nostalgia, the right amount of Friday feeling and enough bangers that you can all sing along to
  3. Go the long way round. Set off on holiday hours before you need to, stopping off at different sites, cute villages and scenic spots that you wouldn’t normally get to see
  4. Wake up with nothing in particular to do
  5. Lie out in the morning cold dewy grass as the sun starts to rise, we could all do with pretending we’ve been to a festival this year
  6. Finally get round to reading that book that’s been sitting on your shelf for months
  7. Discover that gem of a rock pool or secret beach that you haven’t found before
  8. Scream and dive under the first wave
  9. Spend a whole afternoon watching the kids get excited about building a moat around a sandcastle. Who knew it could be that much fun, but hey it’s free entertainment
  10. Pack that classic British seaside picnic, twice the amount of sandwiches you need but loving every minute of the nostalgic crisps, biscuit and piece of fruit combo
  11. Get the OS maps out for the first time this year and plan a decent hike, either an old fave or somewhere new
  12. Learn something new, whittle a spoon, learn how to fillet or make now the time to book those mountain biking lessons you’ve been meaning to do for ages
  13. Find a little food truck, with yummy local food in the most unexpected place
  14. Have an hour long soak in the outdoor bath, whilst someone busily cooks you gourmet dinner and tops up the wine (ok, you might have to book a C&S holiday for this one)
  15. Put something delicious from the farm shop on the BBQ
  16. Eat one more BBQ’d sausage than you needed to
  17. Pimp your alchohol with foraged fruit, because you know it tastes so much better, definitely one of your five a day and if it’s out of the local bush it’s probably organic
  18. Find that lovely drowsy feeling that comes from a whole day of fresh air
  19. Feel comfortable in the silence of people all watching a fire
  20. Get naked. Night time skinny dip anyone?
  21. Make sure you say at least once in your most surprised voice “I can’t believe it’s not dark yet” at 9:30 even though it happens every year
  22. Crack out the monopoly board and actually get to the end
  23. Watch the sunset get more beautiful every second until it fades
  24. Go to bed pleasantly exhausted and not at all bothered that it’s only 9:30
  25. Wake up and do it all again
