With the popularity of Instagram ever increasing, it’s easy to think that you need to travel far and wide to have great adventures and get that perfect IG shot. Whilst we love a bit of foreign travel, at FINDRA we also support the concept of local everyday adventures. Those which you don’t have to travel far to experience. Sometimes you don’t even need to leave your town! So here’s a list of 20 ideas to have your own local adventure this summer!
