Summer is here when I can't sleep at night

每週主題: What makes you feel that summer has finally arrived?

2021年8月3日

Living in the south of Spain, I know when summer has arrived. It can get extremely hot and it's so difficult to sleep at night without sweating. Most people need to have a siesta during the day. July is definitely the worse and you need to have fans on and pull down the shutters. Many businesses close because it's too hot to walk the streets and most people either stay in or spend a month at the beach. Many Spanish families have a house in the city and a house at the beach. The sea is freezing in the south and the climate is usually dry. It can reach to about 43 degrees and the humidity can be less than 20% some days.


I normally go to England during the summer, but it's been difficult to fly with the covid situation. When I go to England I love camping and hiking, something which is difficult to do in Spain during the summer. England is a lot cooler and you don't get bitten by mosquitos like you do in Spain. I love the smell of the grass and flowers in England and people seem happier because usually it rains. The only problem is you can't predict the British weather so make sure you always have a thin waterproof jacket.

One thing both countries share in common is that when the summer arrives: we both love BBQs and ice-cream. 
I love summer
