Even if you can’t take your dream #vacation this #summer, you can use some #staycation time to plan it, says Maple & Mango. Take an hour or two to learn more about the places you might like to visit and the things you’ll want to do while there. To get any likely travel companions interested in your plan, dip your toes into the area’s culture by cooking a few dishes that are popular at your chosen destination and playing some native music. Better still? Combine your excursion planning and exotic menu with a summer cookout — with suitable beverages, games and/or crafts for all of the adults and children in attendance.
