Pinterest’s Anika Briner grew up in Santa Cruz five blocks from the beach. “I'm pretty sure I never wore shoes for the entire 3 months of summer,” she said. “I learned to surf at Cowell's and every time I go back there, I remember catching my first wave when I was 8! So much nostalgia wrapped up in the smell of salty sea air.”

Pinterest’s Brittany Vaughn grew up in Colorado and loved visiting the Great Sand Dunes. “We spent every summer on the road in my dad's old Scout truck and our best memories were off-roading, surfing the dunes and splashing around in the shallow lakes at the base of the sand.”

“As summer approaches, I'm feeling particularly nostalgic for my days at Camp Chewonki in Maine,” said Pinterest’s Charlie Hale. “I remember island hopping up the coast on salt water canoe trips, hiking the Appalachian trail, playing scouting games like capture the flag, learning farm chores and, of course, singing songs around the campfire, many of which I still know today.”

Pinterest’s Andreas Lieber said his favorite summer vacation is, “One week kitesurfing in Mui Ne followed by a Mekong river trip to explore the greatness of Vietnam's countryside. I want to go back!”

“We had a forest in our Colorado backyard,” said Pinterest designer Morgan Keys. “During the summers, we’d gather fallen branches and pine needles to make a woodland den—we even tiled the floor with flat sandstones.”

“My college roommate and I took a road trip from California to Missouri,” said Pinterest recruiter Kristen Ervin. “We drove through the Rocky Mountains and the plains of Kansas—it was so much fun we did it again the following summer!”

Pinterest engineer Yuwei Chen’s favorite summer memory: “Spending the day doing sports or shopping, then coming home and soaking in a wonderful bathtub filled with pink bubbles.”
