Hamburg yesterday

As you know, the absolute majority of my travels goes to the North. Many people don’t understand that, claiming it is always cold there and you never get a tan. This year, I am travelling south for the first time in I-can’t-even-remember (but it most have been when the last Harry Potter came out).

Portugal and France! Good food, relaxed people, sunshine! Because I only fly with handbaggage, my packing had to be light. Ah, I thought, no problem, what do you need in constant 25 degrees anyway, some dresses, some tights and sandals. And yes, that was great for the first week of my vacation here in Germany.┬áFrom Dizzel to Hamburg, we’re being spoiled by endless sunshine and I even bought new sunglasses.

And now I see the weather forecast for Lisbon: 14 degrees. One of my friends who is already there texts me so I can’t even believe the forecast is wrong. “Rain”, she wrote only to add ten minutes later, “let me rephrase: cloudbursts!” Really, Southern Europe? Are you kidding me? Don’t you want me? Sunny 21 degrees in Stockholm and you greet us with raining 14 degrees?
