Believe it or not, the summer is here. The late summer nights, BBQ parties, beach hangouts or rainy days that's not a degree above the temperature on Christmas Eve. Anyhow, the summer is here and we have collected our tips and plans for the best vacation in both weathers. 

 

The iGoMoon team will also take some well-deserved vacation and rest after an intense, fast-paced and different spring! Although we will be a few fewer on the Moon during the summer, we will remain open in the office as usual.

 

So let's see what the crew will be doing during their summer vacation!

Where do you want to have a picnic and what will you bring?

Ideally somewhere sunny but where you’d catch a little shade. I’d bring cheese, all kinds of cheese. Every type of cheese imaginable.

 

What’s the secret behind the best summer?

The secret is to plan nothing. Just go with the flow and see where the summer winds carry you.

 

It’s the last day on your vacation, your bank account shows ZERO, and you want to get out the last bit of the summer. How do you spend your day?

I would almost immediately turn to a life of crime to make ends meet. I’m thinking that I might not be so good at it, living in constant fear of being caught.

 

Tell us about your best travel memory:

The time I went backpacking through South East Asia with my best mates and we found a baby elephant, wandering all alone. We’d eventually return the calf back to the herd. An emotional rollercoaster I tell ya’.

 

The best thing about the summer?

THE SUN. Nothing can beat a Nordic summer night with the sun up at full blast at 3 am.

 

It’s game night, which game are you playing?

I’d be playing the board game Lika som Bär. Lika som bär is a great card- and party game. Best suited for 4-10 players. You can pick up a copy of your own at http://www.tactic.net/product.php?lang=SWE&Product_number=02196.
