This or That Summer Tag

This or That Summer Tag
This or That Summer Tag
I saw this tag by one of my favourite bloggers Danielle over at Underland To Wonderland. A fun way to look back over the summer I've had :)

*
Ocean or Pool
Ocean! I love snorkelling and was lucky enough to snorkel with a pod of 500+ dolphins in New Zealand a few years ago. The only pools I swim in are those at spas or when I'm on holiday (AKA very, very rarely). I want to be surrounded by fish and wildlife.
Iceberg Pool, Sydney

Beach or Wilderness
Probably the beach. I live in a forest which is pretty "wild" so the beach is different. I love crashing waves and the sand between my toes. I like visiting the Gower as it has some of the nicest beaches in the world.

Watermelon or Strawberries
Don't make me choose! Local, sweet strawberries are so good but then a succulent juicy watermelon is amazing on hot sunny days too.

Bikini or One Piece
This one is tough as I like both. I guess this summer I've mostly been wearing a green and white striped one piece but bikinis definitely have a place in my wardrobe too.

Lemonade or Ice Tea
I love proper cloudy lemonade. Mmmm bitter lemons from a glass bottle. Proper homemade icetea is good. The stuff you buy from coffee shops in the UK or in plastic bottles has far too much sugar in to be enjoyable.

Grilled Hot Dogs or Over a Fire
Veggie sausages cooked on a stick over a campfire. Yum yum yum.

Hat or Sunglasses
I look stupid in hats. I love my sunglasses though.

Windows Down or AC
I do not have AC in my car so windows down and hope for a breeze.

Tanning Lotion or Sunscreen
As a pale redhead, tanning lotion would most likely make me burn faster. Suncream all the way. Us Brits don't realise how harmful UV rays are. Even on cloudy days we can burn.

Baseball Game or Concert
Playing sports is fun, watching sports is boring. I love a good gig. My partners in a band so I get to go to quite a few gigs. Yay.

Ice Cream or Popcicle
The new Alpro Vanilla ice cream is AMAZING! It is so creamy and sweet. This still totally depends on my mood as ice poles are amazing on hot days.

Fireworks or Fireflies
I've never seen a firefly. The closest I've seen would be glowworms which are really cool. I only enjoy fireworks at proper, organised events. The ones I see fly from peoples gardens are usually a bit lame.

Flip Flops or Bare Feet
Flip flops. I love being bare foot on the grass and on the beach but I have ridiculously sensitive soles so the moment the tiniest of pebbles appears... OUCH. Even when i was a child playing in an indoor play area, I could not walk across the roped area like the other kids as it hurt too much.

Water Balloons or Squirt Guns
Neither haha. If the gun is super powerful like a SuperSoaker then sign me up, else I'll stay dry thank you.

How is your summer going so far? I haven't done even half of what I wanted to do but what with working full time, I'm not surprised. Summer isn't over yet so I am hoping to fit things in before Autumn comes.
If you choose to do this tag please let me know as I'm nosey and want to read yours.

  1. This is the perfect tag to read to brighten up a grey summer's day in the UK haha! I would have to agree with you on the ocean vs. pool question, I love swimming with fish! Seeing all of those dolphins in New Zealand must've been incredible! If you're looking for some vegan ice creams to try, Booja Booja are incredible, their chocolate ice cream is to die for! I'd pick that over an ice lolly any day!

    1. I have seen Booja Booja a lot but am yet to try (the price always puts me off). Writing this post did bring back some awesome memories but makes me sad I'm in the UK nowhere near the sea haha.

  4. This is such a fun tag and you really get to know more of a persons personality from something like this! Although some I would be in the middle - I love going barefoot as much as I love wearing flip flops lol

    1. I know what you mean. Barefoot at home, in the garden on on the beach. Flip flops everywhere else.
