Trying food from a different country for the first time can be really exciting. Why don’t you kick off with the Ethiopian cuisine, which has some of the world’s most unique and delicious food to offer – plus it’s very light which is perfect for summer! But trying new fruits, or simply buying a fresh coconut, could also be a great way to achieve that tropical island feeling…

Music affects our mood a lot, so consider updating your summer playlist with some happy vibes and songs that remind you of being on holiday. Close your eye and imagine being at the beach with palm trees all around you and the warm sun on your face…

3. Buy some cute sea shell accessories

Accessories inspired by the sea aren’t just a holiday thing. Update your look with some cute sea shell jewellery that will give you a similar feeling to buying souvenirs on a trip abroad.
