35 Ways To Get Outdoors More This Summer

35 Ways To Get Outdoors More This Summer EventBrite

I have a three month summer holiday planned ahead of me. This is due to me not carrying on with the course I am currently doing at college and starting again in September, doing A levels. Although this may sound great, I will be doing three years at college, but I am pretty chilled with that, it just gives me more time to get my life together.

Although this long summer break sounds fab, I can see myself curled up indoors, not going out. This is not what I want to happen. For once I want to make the most of the outdoors, enjoying experiences not spending my time indoors watching more and more box sets and DVDs

With this long summer ahead of me, I need to stay busy, so I thought I would share with you 35 ways you can get out more this summer (All of which I am hoping to do myself), all in aid of supporting Eventbrite's GOMO (Going Out More Often) project. Eventbrite specializes in event planning and has the largest self-service ticketing platform in the world that helps people find and plan both free and ticketed events. They thought it would be a great idea for me to share how to make the most out of the rest of your 2016, so enjoy!
