After a 5-day, long week work whether it may be an office or a business or anything you work for a living, who does not love an outing on a weekend. I personally like to plan any 1 weekend in a month to go for outing with family or friends. Who does not love a simple picnic with family or friends? Everyone from children to adults love a lovely picnic. It may be in a park, an estate garden, on a hillside, lakeside on a beach etc in spring or summer season. This outing only demands that climate should be nice and lovely with a scenic surrounding. Enjoying in the company of nature is refreshing. A picnic is usually a one-day outing from morning to evening. It is for morning birds those who do not like to spend a night outside. If you want to spend simply one day in your weekend, just grab a blanket, a snack basket, some outdoor playing toys and go out for a lovely and warmth picnic with your near and dear.
One of the many gifts that nature gave to human beings is a sky filled with twinkle stars. How lovely and lucky to observe the vast sky filled with stars on a clear summer night. This outing is for night owls who want to enjoy the silence and solitude nature offers at night. Why not use this opportunity and get away from the light pollution of big bright noisy cities and towns for once. Plan a night out on a countryside or any place from which you can see as many stars in the sky. Start the preparations, required gear for camping, campfire, barbecue etc. Plan to reach your stargazing site by the evening before sunset and make the camp. Enjoy your outing by the smell of sizzling barbecue, in the warmth of campfire with ghost stories or camping songs and finally still star gazing and wondering what message, the universe is delivering to you.
If you have a telescope then it is fine but if you do not have one, no problem, lie on the ground and see countless stars. Do not forget to take safety measures because the night not only gives adventure but also danger. You can also have a lovely sunrise scenery waking you up. If you are not feeling to go out of the station, then plan a simple outing within the city or town you live. There will always be a new place to explore within the city. Visit a new place whether it can be a new shop, new pub, new garden, restaurant etc but the place should be your first visit. Explore it and tag or post the details of it or give your feedback about the place on any social media site you like. Let the world know that you are a discoverer of your own city.
Open air theatre or drive-in theatre is an innovative and recreation outings. If you do not want to stick in a normal movie theatre or plays, then plan a visit to an open-air theatre with your family or friends. Enjoy the movie or play, with snacks and plenty of space, fresh breath in open-air. It is like watching a movie in your backyard on a big screen and on soft cushions. Drive-in theatre is totally different with a technological advancement. You can try it as it can give a different movie experience. “Volunteering”, Yes what you have heard is right. This activity requires good heart and a helping hand. What is life if there is no service for society. It may be small or big but everybody should do some good service to other living beings. Choosing to volunteer for any organisation or cause on a weekend not only makes us happy but gives some peace to our soul and mind that we did some good today. Individual volunteering is good but group volunteering adds some more good and some more helping hands.
Choose your interest, it may be for a religious organisation, environmental issues, conserving our flora and fauna, any social cause like childhood improvement or women empowerment etc. There are so many lives which require our help and support. Do not forget we also require helping hand in our lives. At the end of the day, we can feel pure happiness and satisfaction. Plan shopping with your gang and after that a hearty lunch or dinner adds to your enjoyment. Choose your favourite mall and go shopping with your buddies, empty your pockets as per your requirement and after that have a stomachful lunch in your favourite restaurant and spend the day with gossips and discussions. Friendship begins with conversations and deepens by revealing of secrets. If you are an adventurer and your gang shares your interests, plan a two day adventurous trip on your weekend. Do not forget to take safety precautions because remember even a brave knight requires a shining armour and a sword in his hands for his safety.
