Island Life Guide For A Full Experience

Island Life Guide For A Full Experience

After a full year of studying and working you are probably ready to enter a stress-free zone. Spending your summer on an island gives you the opportunity to relax, get a tan, have fun and explore anything it has to offer. Here is how to have the time of your life!

Take your most amazing clothes with you

Have in mind that islands basically require colorful clothes. It is important for both your happiness and to keep the heat away as much as possible. Always pack swimwear, flip flops, and beach towels.

Buy the right book

Since you will probably leave your laptop at home and you will be away from your favorite series for a while make sure to pack one or two books. As a huge literature lover I will list out some books ideas for you. Girl Boss by Sophia Amoruso, Idol by Carrie Duffy, Half of A Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie are just a few of my suggestions.

Visit as many places as possible

It is necessary to see as many places as you can wherever you are. Islands usually offer amazing nature that we don’t see on an everyday basis and great places to hang out at. Don’t forget beach bars and summer festivals that might be near you. In my opinion, local traditions and food can be very interesting too. Try to get to be a part of the place as much as you can.

Make a travel journal

I usually carry a Moleskine journal with me on my vacation to write down every detail of my trips and make sure I will never forget them. And of course my Polaroid camera that allows me to print instantly and put the pictures next to its description
