THINGS TO DO AND PLACES TO VISIT THIS SUMMER 2016

IMG_3912.JPGIf you’re probably thinking that summer will be a bum day all day er day, think again! We all know that after months of waiting, we are all in dire need of a summer vacation and school comes along just to end it. So the annual problem for our generation is finding a good way to spend it (and I’m singing the Phineas and Ferb theme song haha).  As a student I’m also saving some money for my plans to push through this summer. So start saving and buy experience, not things. If you don’t have any plans on your mind yet, here are my suggestions…. 🙂
