The Real (Australian Kinda) Summer
Ireland is a fantastic place for many reasons, summer isn’t one of them. There can be weeks when a partially sunny day is the best weather treat you could ask for. Obviously, summer is a short-lived memory for most years. After living here for four years, you would imagine it to get easier to cope with, but you are wrong – the craving only gets more intense, and so does my whining.
What I craved today was a sunny, lazy afternoon by the sea – an afternoon of unplanned nothingness. Perth, Australia came to mind – clear skies, blue ocean, and a perfect cold cocktail. I shall wait for my day in the sun!
