My Summer is Looong so here's the third sequel to my Fun In The Sun series for the taking (I mean reading!). But to make sure you still know your Summer Alphabet (hehe), click on the ABCDE and FGHIJ of my favorite, fun summer activities over the years, as I travel around different countries - Aspen (Colorado) Summer Culture Immersion, Blueberries Picking in Ackersjon (Sweden), Cruise Vacation in Northern Europe, Diving in Boracay (Philippines), Easter Fun With Family, Fantasizing in Disneyland (Hongkong and Los Angeles), Gold Rush in Coloma (California), Hula Hooping in Aspen Mountain (Colorado), Island Hopping in Caramoan (Philippines), and Jumping Craze in Dipolog (Philippines)... And now the fun in the sun continues with KLMNO --
K – Kayaking in Hawaii's Kai Lua Beach
Kayaking or Canoeing is one summer activity that is worth going out for, as far as Hawaii (USA) and experiencing the beauty and wonder of Oahu's world famous Kailua Bay and its Mokulua islands. Well, I am not taking Kayaking sitting down (haha) just that I don't have a scanned photo of me actually doing this adrenaline - filled summer sport since there was no digital camera yet in 2000 (and my scanner is currently out of order). But I assure you that this Kayaking excursion in Kailua Bay, paddling over its pristine waters and calm winds is one of the best summer memories I had!
L – Lake Viewing Luxury in Colorado
Aside from the magnificent view of the Maroon Bells looking up, summer in Snow Mass, Colorado (USA) also presents another affordable luxury down below - Lake Viewing! Oh! the beautiful scenery of the calm Maroon lake in the middle of green lush fields of wild flowers that mirrors the world's most photographed "twin" fourteeners Maroon Bells and sorrounded by aspen and pine trees, creates a true nature's masterpiece to behold and feel! Here, you can choose to stand or sit, or pose or walk, take the upper or lower scenic trail while clicking the shutter. But whatever you do, you will surely have no trouble taking "postcard perfect view" even though you are a novice photographer like me. The view is truly breathtaking and spectacular! A summer's delight!
M – Magayon Festival in Albay
Another one -of- a kind summer experience I had was seeing Norway's Midnight Sun in Trondheim. Yes!During the summer months, Norway doesn't get dark at night and that goes for the whole country. So I was very lucky to be roadtripping that summer from Sweden to Norway and back when I noticed that the sun stays in the sky around the clock. The midnight sun is indeed phenomenal!!
O – Ostersund Moosing Around
My summer trip in Ostersund, Sweden was an opportune time to see moose (elk), the largest extant species in the deer family. I have always been amazed with this large and yet slow-moving and sedentary animals usually only seen in the wild. So when my friend brought me to Moose Garden to observe real, live moose during a safari-tour, I was overjoyed and considered it an extra - Ordinary treat! But what really put me in awe was finding this huge beast surprisingly gentle as I interact and feed them in their natural environment!
