Creative Jewelling & Life


Badge by: Doobster @ Mindful Digressions

I haven’t seen so much sun before in my life as after I became an expat in Spain. The sun push the degrees up around 9 month per year. The degrees in the winter can go down so we feel the cold, but even in the winter we use to have much sunshine in the middle of the day, which I enjoy very much.

Just to sit outside with my coffee and listen to the birds all year round. It helps me to feel myself and avoid stress. It is possible to enjoy the garden almost every day in the year, when we don’t have rain.

I come from a more climatic cold country, Denmark, as are located in Scandinavia, North Europe. There we could have around 3 months summer, sometimes a little more, but the rest of the year with low degrees.

  1. What a huge change in climate for you! But it sounds like you are enjoying your sun 🙂

    What a great post Irene!

  3. Being a native Californian I know I would have a hard time adjusting to colder climates. We do get so used to nice weather. But we could use some more rain here.

  4. This, along with the pictures of the other day, make me a little bit jealous. 🙂

  5. Oh, I would so love to be able to drink my coffee outside more than 3 months of the year! It’s one of my favourite things to do. 🙂

  6. I’m with you, Irene – in North Cyprus we get mainly sunny days even in winter. I must say I found the 40C each day in August hard going, but for the life of me I could not live in a cold climate now. Winter is cold (by Cyprus standards) but it’s only a couple of months and in the nearly 3 years we’ve been here we have not had to use the immersion heater – all our hot water is solar!

    • Wow Mo. Here we have needed to use firewood in the winther in the evenings and sometimes in daytime too, but now we went more south, so I wait and see, how cold the winter will be here. Your weather in the winter sounds wonderful 😉
