  2. I live in Bergen, but in the summer I stay at Klepp, Jæren where I'm from, usually working and meeting my friends that study other places.

    What I enjoy most about the norwegian summers is that it's so light outside, and also how quiet it is back home when everybody leaves for vacation elsewhere.

  3. hei Astrid!
    I live in the Balearic Island, Mallorca (Spain).
    My favorite routines in the island in summer is to go to one of the several small mountain villages searching little beaches where I can take a bath and relax, enjoying the wonderful landscape. And at the end of the day, I love to see the sunset on the sea while I'm eating a refreshing ice cream.

  33. Hi Astrid !
    I live in Barcelona, but I spend my summer in a seaside village. What I love more of my summers is the simplicity of them. Little activities becomes the main ones: waking up, going to the beach, reading a lot, preparing yummy fresh meals... I don't thing that it depends of the weather it is just the way we do .
    Good bye!

  34. First time I comment, but I've been enjoying your blog for a while and love your everyday pictures, so I thought to give it a try :)
    I'm from northern Italy and what I love most from summer is... icecream! I eat it almost once everyday during summer season and when I don't I feel like something is missing. Yeah, I'm an icecream addicted ;)

  36. Hei Astrid! I'm Allison and I live in Philadelphia, US. Summer has been horribly hot and humid these past weeks, but I got up very early Saturday to pick 13 lbs (almost 6kg) of blueberries from my favorite family farm nearby. The taste is so worth it!

  40. hei astrid!

    i love everything about summer. i'm originally from oahu, hawaii but now live in los angeles california. life in california is so different from hawaii. there's season change here, which i love! it makes you appreciate warmth and cold so much more than 80 degrees all year round--which isn't bad either. i love driving along the coast with the windows down, eating ice cream and popsicles on piers, watching the pelicans dive into the ocean, all the green trees, summer sandals, dresses and braids, ISO 100, mojitos and sugary cocktails, caprese salads and bbq's. i can go on and on :)

  41. Hei Astrid!

    I live in Belgium and one of my favourite things in the Belgian summer is to visit my parents in the countryside and eat fruits as I pick them in the garden. A favourite of the favourite would be the strawberries - they live in the area that produce the best in the country!

  46. Aw how could I miss this giveaway... well I live in Tehran, Iran. and let me tell you that it's really hard to say what I love about summer in my region. Because I don't think that it would be easy to pass a very hot summer time with that kind of cloths we have to wear like scarfs or others. So my summers usually being spent dreaming about sea shores and Popsicle! And also I distract myself by making light cool meals and hanging out around the house waiting for autumn!

    :)
