Summer Plans

So as this my last year of sixth form, this summer will be a long one!! My last exam is towards the end of June and unis don't tend to start until the end of September at the earliest. So I have the opportunity to do lots of exciting things, which I intend to take!
My cousin is getting married in Dublin just two days after I'm finished for the summer, so that's perfect timing! As I have lots of family members in Ireland, I'm planning to spend some time out there after the wedding, possibly with my friend.
Holiday with friends
This is one that I think will be the most fun, but it's also the least likely to happen. My sixth form friends and I want to go abroad somewhere for about a week. The issue is actually planning anything! We can't decide where we want to go, if we will stay in a hotel or apartment, how we will get there... the list goes on. We should have done some planning by the time this post goes up, but I'm not sure how much will be achieved there! I would personally love to stay in an apartment in a Greek island, so hopefully I can persuade  the others to my way of thinking. We were originally planning to go interrailing, but we decided that the passes were too restrictive and expensive. I think it would be a great experience to go abroad with a large group of friends, which is something I've never done before.
My uncle is involved in sailing and used to be the captain of a tall ship. Therefore, he decided that instead of getting me or my cousins birthday presents, he would instead put some money towards us each going on a sail training course after we're 18. I'm not entirely sure what this involves, but I'm looking forward to it anyway! I think it will be quite an interesting and challenging experience. You get to choose where you start and finish the trip, but unfortunately all of the amazing-sounding ones going to places like the Norwegian Fjords are ridiculously expensive.
Au pairing
As I'm going to be studying languages at university, my mum thinks it would be a really good idea to do some au pairing in French or German speaking countries. I also think that would be extremely fun and useful, but I just don't see how I'm going to comfortably fit it in this summer. Maybe that'll be one for next year.
Spending time at home
As we as all of this, I really want to spend a fair bit of time at home, with my friends and family. It will my last summer before leaving home, at least temporarily, so I want to make the most of it. I should probably also get a job to get ready for that student debt!
Thanks for reading!
