Now that summer is here, as a teen, we all used to make this bucket list or to put in a grown-up language “A to-do list” that bore our planned summer. Hiking, camping, swimming, internship, and whatnot.
The list was a sacred scripture, and any undone task reminded us how we failed at making the most of our vacation. Of all the recreational activities, camping is quite a pacifying way to swipe your summer days.
Spending a night away from the suffocating city buildings to explore nature, out in the deep dark woods or at the top of a mountain.
