“It’s looking more like autumn than summer – we’ve swapped sandals for umbrellas.” – Laura Tobin, Good Morning Britain
Once again, I find myself wrapped up tight inside my winter coat and fighting a losing battle against strong autumnal-like (yes,that’s right!) winds. Gone have the sunshine and off-the-shoulder tops, as we’ve seen the return of thick jumpers. Even the scarves are back out!
Peacefully sitting by the sea and enjoying the warmth of the sun resting on your shoulders, you quietly take delight in the sweet taste of the rosy drink in your hand… and before you know it, you’re clinking your seventh glass against your friend’s and dancing (the very best salsa you can) as the bubbles rush to your head!
During my six awesome years living and working in Spain, this was pretty much the norm on a weekend’s evening. 🙂
As the rain pours down, I can’t help but miss my days spent on sandy beaches; sipping sangria or another typical Spanish beverage and letting the sun wrap its warm arms around me. Today however, it’s not just Spain that I’m craving, I’m really missing the beach parties and the pure thrill of Spanish summer! Just take me back now…
