Summer brings heat and signals the start of the sports season. It is the time for a family vacation, it is time for summer games and thrills. It is the time when one does not have any care in the world. Of course, for the shopaholics, it signals a renewed spurt in shopping.

Feel the heat in summer

Summer is lounging time, catching trout or lazing in the shade while the champions slug it out on tennis courts and across the scorching tarmac in their formula cars. The season begins with Chennai Open in India where you get some top tennis players cracking their opponents with topspin shots and line hugging replies along the backhand court. It inspires some youngsters to take up the sport and they go after the ball with enthusiasm.

When they achieve success, they become famous overnight. It is a matter of time and effort, one must not give up. Summer school training camps teach youngsters how to approach the game and how to win. Of course, you can join if you want to spend some time in a useful manner.

Vacation time is here

Everyone remembers their summer vacations. Family holidays are replete with innumerable incidents of fun and laughter. Choosing the correct spot can be tricky of course, one needs to consult the entire family to be sure that you have made the correct choice.
Kodaikanal, Darjeeling, Ooty, Shimla, Manali, Coonoor or Kalimpong -- take your pick and check out the travel itinerary with family vacation planning agents or tour guides. If you plan your trip in advance you will have a lovely outing with beautiful memories to bring back.
International tourists spots ideal for summer vacationing begin with watching Aurora Borealis in Sweden's lapland, visiting Great Smoky Mountains National Park in the USA, Keukenhof Gardens, world's largest tulip gardens, in Netherlands, lounge on the pink beach sands of Anse Source d’Argent belonging to the Seychelles Archipelago or watch grizzly bears fight for salmon in the pools of Alaska. Of course these are only ideas, there are many places to go, if you want to.

Shopping around the summer time

Shopping has undergone a revolution. The people come out in their Tees and shorts to find ways to beat the summer heat. Fruits, energy drinks and refreshing cool treats are always in demand. Most people choose to shop online since it removes all hassles of manually searching and picking out items. Searching items online also helps because one can read up the brochures and details of the products. They can compare various brands and choose only the best items.
There is some psychological connection between summer and shopping though I do not see what it is. For shoppers, malls abound in most prominent metropolitan areas. Places to visit for tourists in India would be:
a) Agra -- for Taj Mahal
b) Bangalore -- for Gardens and shopping
c) Goa -- for fun
d) Kashmir -- for its snowy terrain and gardens

Leisure activity during summer

Nothing beats the heat like cooling it off indoors with a cool drink in your hand. Lolling by the pool or lying on hammocks in the shade, summer is the reason why most people take a break. Leisure activities like indoor games take precedence. Online games and gaming activity hits the peak. One can get cool games online and have a ball. Do not forget to throw your paper away, it might disturb your pre-lunch snooze.
The more energetic crowd would like to indulge in water polo, trekking, mountain climbing, skating or sky diving. Summer is the time to let loose and shake those cobwebs from your mind. For academic minded people, there are online libraries and study groups to help you finish your academic papers or school assignment. Summer is a great season, enjoy it to the fullest.
