Everyone knows what the month of June means: June holidays. To parents, that means the frantic rush of finding activities to keep the kids entertained. On the other hand, for people who don’t have kids and absolutely loathe these tiny spawns of satan, the June holidays could mean living hell. Shopping malls, movie theatres, parks and restaurants; these are just some of the places that are definitely going to be littered with a plethora of noisy, hyperactive children. If that makes you shiver in fear, fret not as we have here a list of places to help you escape these little devils during the June holiday period.

Kids don’t really drink coffee and you definitely won’t be able to find them at a coffee brewing class. If you’re a child-hating coffee fanatic, we recommend checking out Common Man Coffee Roasters coffee brewing classes where you can pick up a few skills to make coffee like a pro.
