To have a blast

To have a blast: To have a great time

Postcard from Soyoun, who is studying English in LA, and her friend Maria, who is from Spain.
Hey Maria,
How is everything in Spain? We miss you! This week is our vacation and I am joining some of our classmates on a day trip to Santa Barbara. There are some new students from Japan, Brazil, and Saudi Arabia! They are all very nice :-) Yesterday we went to Disneyland and we had a blast! It was my first time there and I can't believe how much fun it was! Please come to visit us soon! Love from LA!

Two friends talking after vacation

Jim: Hi, Kate. Where did you go on vacation?
Kate: We went hiking at Big Bear. It was so beautiful.

Jim: Wow. Do you like hiking in the summer?
Kate: Of course! We had a blast! We got to exercise and see some amazing views!

Meaning: To have a blast means to have a really good time doing something. In the postcard, Soyoun describes a trip to Disneyland where she had a lot of fun. In the conversation, Kate tells Jim that she had a blast, or had a lot of fun, hiking at Big Bear mountain.
