The season is just starting to sizzle, and listeners have written in to share their plans for adventure – everything from wrestling in Mongolia to singing in England's Canterbury Cathedral, from cycling through the villages of southern France to studying wildlife in a remote Peruvian community.

ARI SHAPIRO, host:

As we approach the long, hot days of summer, we asked you to tell us about your upcoming summer adventures. Did you ever. WEEKEND EDITION listeners will be doing everything from wrestling in Mongolia to singing in England's Canterbury Cathedral. You'll be cycling through the villages of southern France and studying wildlife in a remote Peruvian community.

Please keep sending us your travel plans. If we like your story, we'll arrange to talk with you while you're on vacation, and we'll put your adventures on the air. Go to our Web site, NPR.org, click on the Contact Us link, and put Summer Adventures in the subject line.

A Sense of Summer Adventure

It's hard to imagine summer without thinking of vacation. So when host Liane Hansen asked listeners to write in about their summer plans, vacation was clearly on their minds. Some will be wrestling in Mongolia while others will be singing in England's Canterbury Cathedral. Over the summer, we'll be taking you along on some of these adventures.
