  • Living in a place where every store, cafe, event, restaurant, town is twenty minutes away, it can be hard to connect with friends or anybody. It seems like everywhere I go, everyday, I need a ride from my parents. A big gift of freedom (that I cannot wait for) is being able to get around myself by obtaining my driving license. Nevertheless, when I do have the opportunity to be with my friends either in town or somewhere else, it is almost inevitable to have fun and find adventures where ever I go.
    Whenever I go out the front door, I usually pack my bag of whatever I may need throughout the day, because who knows what could happen in just one day.

    When summer comes around, everybody gets super excited because school is out and we are free to have adventures all day if wanted. Something I've been doing recently is swimming a lot. When bumming around in town or being bored or simply too hot, someone always gets the idea, "hey let's go swimming!" So we walk. Walking is something you have to do often around these parts, especially because the best swimming holes are on little paths through the woods.

    It goes like this: We find the perfect swimming place in a river or pond, get to the water, strip down to our underwear (if nobody had the good idea to pack a bathing suit just in case) and jump in satisfied and happy. Sometimes we bring food and have a picnic, but all you need is to find a good rock to lay on and soak in some sun. Swimming in rivers, lakes and ponds has become part of my lifestyle, and a pool is foreign to me now.

    Even though the accessibility of some things is not so great, sometimes the inaccessibility is even better. Being surrounded by all these natural resources to have so much fun in is truly a blessing. There is so much freedom, fun people and beauty around here, you're bound to have a good adventure if you are up for it.
