Summer Activities In Tynemouth

 When my therapist advised me to take a leave from work and take care of myself, I immediately thought about my long-overdue trip to Tynemouth, where one of my close friends is currently living. She’s been telling me to visit her ever since she got married to a Tynemouth resident and I’ve always refused because of my job that demands so much of my time. Now that the advice came from a professional, I knew it was the perfect timing, especially because it was summertime. The stress and anxiety were killing me. Besides, Kate promised to eliminate most if not all of that negativity after the trip.

 

Beach Fun

To cut the story short, for my first day, Tynemouth – and Kate – didn’t fail me at all. We went to the beautiful beaches that the village was known for, which were almost always packed with locals and tourists who were so eager to have those tan lines when the day was done. We had lunch at the King Edward’s Bay, where we met with some of Kate’s friends who were just as cool as she was. It was a satisfying lunch. Food was great, as I expected since Tynemouth is popular for its varying choices of gastronomical treats. In the afternoon, we did some summer fun at Longsands, an awesome beach with fine golden sand and a vista that was worth waiting for the sunset. I couldn’t remember the last time I felt so light and relaxed.

Kate’s friends brought some sports gear, and we had a lot of fun playing Frisbee while burning those calories from the slabs of barbeque I ate for lunch. We also had a game of volleyball with some of the tourists who were also there just for the summer.

Pub Crawl – A Night To Remember!

The next day, we woke up late. It felt great not to be running around at six in the morning, anxious and nervous about a presentation or in a hurry because you have another company meeting. I just went with the flow – the slow, rejuvenating flow of the Tynemouth summer. We were getting our energies refueled for the most-awaited British Pub Crawl later that evening. I read that the place had more than 20 pubs that were just a few meters from each other, so we had various options on where to drink and get drunk! Our route was one that would tour us around town and stopping by the main clubs, and then we end at the Metro station for the last trip home.

The Cumberland Arms was the first pub we tried. We had a pint of bitter, as suggested by Kate – and Google – and a pint was more than enough for me to feel initially dizzy (no way, not on my first pub!). It was a little expensive, and the music was not my type. So after 30 minutes, we transferred to the Turk’s Head, a unique pub located in a lovely Victorian building. It was surrounded with eccentric historical structures, is conveniently nestled on the town’s main street. Drinks were cheaper, and it was more fun than the Cumberland Arms.

We visited three more pubs before we headed to our last destination for the night – the Head of Steam. A relatively new pub and one of the busiest at the moment, the Head of Steam served strong mixed beverages, particularly the long island iced tea. The intoxication was freedom for my soul, and I shamelessly danced with the live band music, marking the end of a great evening.

 

Curry, Chips, And More

I couldn’t enumerate all my favorite restaurants because there are a lot! I just listed a few below that blew my taste buds away.

Plaza Tandoori. I’m a ‘curry’ fan, and Kate knows this, so she brought me to this curry house, which was near the beach. The Tandoori is also the locals’ favorite. I was lucky to go on a Thursday where I experienced their delicious and satisfying 5-course meal.

The Davanti was Tynemouth’s popular Italian restaurant. It was classy and the cuisine – grilled duck breast in barbeque sauce to name one – was the epitome of Italian food made perfectly delicious.

For great food that was relatively affordable, we chose to check out the Village Bistro one afternoon. This place is also located near the beach, so people flock there to buy sandwiches and other snacks and take them to the sand for an afternoon picnic.

 

Worth The Visit

On the way back home, I had a clearer mind that was ready to go back to work. I would say my Tynemouth summer trip is one I will not forget. I’m happy that now I have somewhere to go when I need an anxiety and stress-free break.

Everything To Know About Tanning On The Beaches Of Tynemouth

Wanting to get a tan and forgetting the white complexion that your old family members have passed down to you is not a bad thing. Everyone seems to wish they look like the bronzed deities from Greek mythology, after all. What you should think about is the best time to tan so that you can prevent contracting diseases or aging the skin.

Why Is Tanning Important?

It does not bother me when someone questions my love for the bronzed look. I only tell them my opinion about it and move on. If you cannot decide whether you should stay for hours in the sun, though, know that tanning can do the following:

Elevate Mood And Energy

The number of people who feel better after getting a tan has substantially increased in recent years. This truth is apparent specifically among young adults.

Scientists have been trying to figure out the correlation between the activity and the mood and behavioral change that newly tanned individuals experience. A few people claim that it raises their endorphin levels, yet what’s obvious is that it affects their mental and psychological views about themselves.

You may try tanning in case you are down and want to increase the melanin in the body. It will be like hitting two birds with a single stone then.

Offer Base Protection

When you are as white as a starved vampire, the skin may merely burn once you sunbathe and not have an even tan. It has happened to me the first time I went to the beach, assuming that all I needed to do was lay on the sand on my front and back for several hours without any preparation.

I have learned since then that hanging out at the tanning salon long enough to see a tinge of color change can prep me for what’s about to take place. This process ideally injects SPF 3 or 4 on the skin – a favorable amount of protection you should have before tanning begins.

Improve Well-Being

Hypertension, multiple sclerosis, and internal cancers are some of the illnesses that the medical society may or may not have found a cure for. Their common denominator is that your condition – considering you possess any of these health problems – may improve once you get exposed to the sun.

Is It Better To Tan Indoors Than Outdoors?

Staying on the beach to get tanned means that you are willing to strip down and let the sunshine touch your bare skin. Despite the high temperature, the heat will not be concentrated on the body, so there are minimal chances of roasting yourself in public.

If you prefer using the tanning beds, sprays, or lotions, on the other hand, you may book a session at any time you please. Personally, however, I am not fond of this method because the intensity of the ultraviolet light that will penetrate your skin can get 12 times more extreme compared to the latter.

The level of convenience that both practices provide may be different, depending on where you live. If you are in Tynemouth, for instance, natural tanning may suit your lifestyle. In case your place rarely gets that golden glow, the chemical solutions can ideally add color to the pale complexion.

When Is The Best Time To Tan?

Although tanning is famous among the white-skinned folks, not everyone can attain the perfect tan. Below are tips to consider regarding the most opportune moment to get a tan.

Before And After Lunch

When your mind is set on looking like a bronzed god or goddess, you might think that staying outside the entire day may be the way to go. However, skincare specialists claim that you can only step out in the sun before 10 AM and after 3 AM. The time between them, you see, is when the UV rays are most damaging. The central star goes directly above the planet, and so its heat drags on until it’s about to set.

To save yourself from mending burns or suffering from premature aging, sunbathe before or after lunch.

When You Are Done With Medication

You may not be able to do tanning while taking antibiotics, birth control pills, or antidepressants. If these medicines are still present in your system, the intense ultraviolet light can react with any of them to increase your photosensitivity. That will prevent you from sunbathing for a little while as rashes may form even after a few minutes of sun exposure. Try to get a tan only when you no longer take medication.

Days After Utilizing A Tanning Bed

The best time to subject yourself to natural tanning is at least 48 hours beyond your last sunbed session.
Like what we have already recognized earlier, the ultraviolet rays that the bulbs in the tanning beds emit have amplified strength in comparison to what the sun provides. Because of that, you become exposed to an enormous amount of UV light, which can potentially harm your skin.

Imagine what occurs now if you insist on flaunting your new tan on the beach just after a day or two. You still have not recovered from the process, but the sunbeams to come in contact with your skin and increase the coloration.
It is not wrong to do both methods at a close interval if need be. Just give your body enough period to create more space for the UV.

The Verdict

Tanning is a great technique to increase the amount of melanin in your system. It is also ideal to do it on one of the peaceful beaches in Tynemouth so that you can relax and enjoy the day. Nonetheless, remember the things mentioned above to avoid roasting your skin literally.

Good luck!
