Ok it’s hot…
But it’s not that hot.
Surviving the Spanish Summer
This overexposed photo really sums up the middle of the day here in Spain.
But it’s easy enough to get by if you follow some simple principles.
1. Hat & Sunglasses
The glare alone strips paint, literally.
Plus there are a whole heap of cool hats that just add to the “I’m chilling in Spain” look.
2. Seek Shelter During the Mid Day
There’s plenty of cafes around that will give you the protection you need. Air-conditioning is a must for most places in Andalusia. Cheap beers, tapas & coffee: should give you the entertainment to keep you there for a few hours, plus wifi!!
3. Air-conditioning in you Bedroom
Seriously get it!!
Most of the time you can get by, and I’m Australian, but when your going to bed nothing is worse then dripping sweat all night.
Or live on the bottom level, they are always cold…
Plan your day around the Morning and the Evening.
The shops are closed for a reason, so leave your sightseeing for after 5pm. This tradition dates back, so don’t fight it, just go with it…
5. Drink Water
You might not think you sweat very much but boy do you lose water.
Top up your supply by drinking a lot of water. Beer and cafes will dehydrate you, so try and drink 1 glass of water for every dehydrating beverage…
Or don’t and suffer 😛
6. Shop Around for Summer Courses
