Will Smith was right: “There is a way that people respond to summer madness.” In many countries as the days get longer and brighter, the weather gets warmer, and we are motivated to move. Although I have nothing against lazy summer days, they are just not for me. More so now that I live in Europe and winter hangs on forever, with a vicious cat’s claws that scrapes my nerves raw.
Summer instead fills me with excitement and anticipation. Of course, some of the season’s appeal is associated with my childhood, where summer inevitably meant, vacation time. Still today, at summer time my thoughts are consumed with how much adventure and fun I can ram into each glorious day. I guess that’s also why summer remains the busiest travel periods of the year.
