Jameson’s Guide on How to Embrace Spontaneity with These Summer Activities

When it comes to seasons, summer is the best. There’s no question. Nothing beats the warm lengthy days, the chilled out vibes, and the buzz in the air. Inviting one and all to sit back, sip back and have a good time.

Travelling can be the perfect way to embrace spontaneity and live in the moment. By experiencing new things, and meeting new people. Worlds collide. And bonds are formed.

If you’re looking for some hidden travel gems, we suggest seeking out the local experts – especially bartenders. Not only can they whip up a mean cocktail native to the city you’re visiting, but they also tend to have insider knowledge on off-the-beaten-track hotspots worth exploring. So why not strike up a conversation and tap into their expertise, you’ll be sure to arrive like a local.


Third Spaces for the win

What is a third space you ask? At Jameson, they are the places where we can make connections with our partners and communities. A place where we can Widen The Circle, learn more our interests and passions and lean into each other’s expertise. This could be a local park, bar, barbers, a skate shop, a vinyl shop or a craftsperson’s worktop.

If you’re feeling bored with your usual go-to places, we suggest trying to see them through a new lens. By approaching these familiar spots with a fresh perspective and trying out different menu options, you may be surprised at how much you can rediscover and appreciate about them. So shake things up and add some excitement to your routine – you never know what new experiences await!

If you’re curious to find your local third space, we’ve made it easy for you in our guide to ​Find Your Local Third Place: Where Community & Culture Meet.
